I received an ARC for this book.
OVERALL : ☆☆☆☆☆
Thank you to Netgalley and publisher for providing me with a digital ARC!
This is my first book by Adrienne Young and thought I had mixed feelings about it at the beginning, I am very happy with the ending and the path this book lead to.
About halfway through the book I was convinced this was going to be a simple 3 star but the more I pushed myself to read the more i really started to connect with Tova.
I really liked that the book was heavy on her characterisation, and how everything always related back to her heritage and past.
— mild spoilers ahead —
The one thing I think I wasn’t entirely comfortable (or perhaps I just didn’t understand) was the constant mentioning of Halvard. It almost seemed that there was infatuation after their limited intereaction but I got over that towards the end.
The romance (expected, I mean this is a YA) was sweet and just the right amount, didn’t feel over saturated and unnecessary.
