This book saved me from a reading slump. It almost hit me right after the Bout of Books read-a-thon, but I persevered through thanks to this novel. Victoria Schwab has a beautiful writing style and, if you read the synopsis, you know that there is a lot of world building required for this novel. Schwab is able to build up this world amazingly without boring you. The entire book is action packed and always left me wanting more. I found myself reading for longer periods of time without noticing how far in the novel I actually got. I was too engrossed to notice.There are so many characters in this book but Schwab is able to help you remember each of them and does not allow them to blur together. Not only did I adore Mac, but Wesley and Roland were amazing supporting characters as well. This book revived my love for reading and I am giving it nothing less than 5/5 stars. Not only is this book amazing, but it is beautiful as well. I love the cover and the design on the inside of the hardcover is beautiful, too. It would be a great addition to your library as well as something that will look good on your shelf, too!
