This book is the first I've listened to by this author and it just isn't for me. At the beginning I had to check if I'd skipped chapters as I felt as though I was half way through the book. I couldn't visualise the characters, or the world it was set in despite how verbose the author was. The author said a lot, and yet none of it meant anything to me. To be honest I didn't know what was going on. I couldn't connect to either character and gave up trying with six hours left to listen. I've seen pretty much all amazing reviews for this book and am genuinely baffled as to how people have loved it. The plot was paper thin, the world building virtually non existent, and the characters weren't fleshed out. Gauri's sister was mentioned so often that I thought she had to be a main character and kept waiting for her to arrive. I was under the impression that you didn't need to have read the first book to be able to listen to this one, but maybe it would of made more sense to me as I still feel that the book started in the middle of a story.
I've seen this author writing style compared to Laini Taylor's. Seriously?? I genuinely don't get it.
The narrator was ok, her tone of voice was nice, but her character voices weren't distinct enough for me. The main character narratives and the actual story were the same. It all just blurred into one. I'll be asking for a refund on this one.
