I really enjoyed the vivid world building in this story. The supernatural lore in the story is thoroughly developed, which helped pull me into this magical world. The storyline is filled with impassioned moments where the drama and emotion is high, but handled with deft prose that keeps things engaging if not believable.
With an easy to like protagonist and a fascinating world, I was easily swept away with the story, but I felt like there was a deluge of events and details that sometimes felt overwhelming. But this is the life that Caly lives and it certainly speaks to the emotional-rollercoaster that she goes on.
