The story is told in the way that Interview with the Vampire is told, through a main character telling someone else. In that sense, nothing actually happens in this book. What we do get is the whole story that has brought us to where the book starts, and hopefully into what the next book will be.
The story, or backstory, is interesting and exciting. I had a difficult time pushing through the second half of the book until the final few chapters. I am unsure what changed there, but I think I was finally getting anxious to know what happened to get us to the main characters current state. I pushed on, and was not disappointed.
If you like books like Red Queen, Throne of Glass, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, you will most likely enjoy this book very much.
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
