My first thought about this book is that it is utterly amazing and that it has a very fresh and new concept that I had never crossed paths with before it talks about a realm that coexists with earth but it's not part of it, it talks about technology but there's a world that survives without it, it talks about falling in love but also talks about family love and it even has thrilling adventure times with lots of adrenaline.
The characters are all so deep and worked with that you can really feel them and actually feel like you're part of their world and not just a bystander in their story.
You will fall in love with this book the moment you open it and every chapter is exciting!
If you like love, family, adrenaline, magic, war and mystical creatures all in the same story then this is a story for you!
