My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
The only reason this book isn’t a 5/5 starred rating; is because although the plot is diverse and original; the characterisation was the epitome of cliche.
If cliche characters and relationships are fine for you; cool. Enjoy this book. However, for me, I found the characters to be carbon copies of Sarah J. Maas‘ crew, except less sassy.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:
This book took me 3 days to complete. I found I wasn’t as hooked as other plots. Please don’t mistake me: I ENJOYED THIS BOOK. But I think after reading so much hype from fellow reviewers; it was a bit of a let-down of mediocrity.
Probably the most predictable bunch of people ever. But I like them! I just don’t love/adore them…
So you’re telling me, that this super-hot-but-doesn’t-know-it, gorgeous girl, signs up to be his next wife
/victim-of-murder, but they pretty much fall in love after three days??? And have sex within the first night????????????
Original as hell, absolutely amazing,
THE WRITING WAS SO GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL
(for real; some of the best writing I’ve ever read. It was a masterpiece). It finished on a cliff-hanger; but I’m happy to continue on 🙂 I like the love interest, Khalid, enough… I guess. No I take that back; he’s fine. EVERYTHING IN THIS BOOK IS FINE. Hence the middle-rating.
(the writing, guys… the writing!!!)
