Not Weir's Best

While the story is interesting, the novel is not quite as well crafted as Weir's three other fiction novels (which are amazing and are must reads). My biggest issue with the book is that I don't know how the two characters and two stories fit together. I feel that the stories would work much better as two separate novels. I feel that the tale of the princes in the tower is a weak through line to connect these two women. It is not that this book is "bad" but when you compare it to Weir's other books it does fall a little flat.

Any additional comments?

Flip flopping back and forth between the two main women in this book can become confusing. The book, however, was very well written and once you got the knack of the shifting back and forth it was very enjoyable.
