Review

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review. 
To be honest I don’t know how to feel about this book. It wasn’t brilliant but it wasn’t bad. For a first book it was good between 3.5 and 4 stars. 

The story was interesting and the world the author has created was captivating but the writing and the protagonist way of speaking was on the level of 13/14 year old. Not a 17/18. Because of that I was not able to fully connect with the main character, Addie. I mean she was likeable and a badass but I wanted her to progress, grow up and be more mature. 

The story is set in a world full of Faes, Angels, Demons and Vampires. The main character, Addie, since she was very young wanted to join the Red Guard and be the first woman to do so. To successed in this she had to complete a lot of tasks and at the same time her friends turned out to be something else than what she always expected. 

Sloane perfectly created an atmosphere of mystery, angst, romance. I really enjoyed it but the typos in the book made me cringe way too much. 

I can’t wait for the second book as I’m sure it will much better than the first one. 

4 stars from me.
