Slightly Smiling Face“I can see why people loved this book, but here’s why it wasn’t for me. The way that Ava Reid was able to create an atmosphere so vivid and transport me into this world was phenomenal. She used basic poetic elements (personification, metaphors and pathetic fallacy) to create immersive imagery that brings the story to life. You can hear the crashing of the waves, feel the chill in the air from a gloomy humid sky, it’s really transports you into the world. The was a quick and easily digestible but that’s about it for the positives for this book. Character work was subpar with backstories that had potential but didn’t explore. The conversations Effy and Preston had were bland and presented low stake challenges that I couldn’t invest myself into their arcs. Effy had strong prejudice towards Preston despite them falling in love within a short time span and I actually wished one of the would drown so it would make the plot remotely interesting. i didn’t like how Effy had memorized every single book and I didn’t love the references to things from our world in a fantasy world.”
