Blah blah blah cast system, blah blah generic characters, blah blah blah limited world building blah blah sub-par romance subplot which was admittedly expected because its YA, and perhaps the worst ending to a book I have ever experienced.
That being said its not all bad. Some interesting concepts are explored, but it they are very brief. I feel like there could have been a lot of things that if changed slightly, would have made for a more interesting book.
The book itself is written simply enough for me to breeze through its 500~ pages in a few hours, but not to simply that I felt my IQ drop as I progressed.
The book is okay, not good, not bad, just okay. I'll probably read the next two books because this one was so easy, and because some resolution would be fantastic.
