Disappointed in this…
My main issue is that it didn't feel like anything new. The villain from this book was the same as in Revelations! That felt hugely disappointing to me. I know these characters live for a long time, but I wanted new material.
I didn't read Legends before this, because Nolyn is advertised as requiring no prior knowledge, but there are SO MANY references to what I think was that series, and I imagined I would have had a greater appreciation for this book if I had that context.
And finally, I just didn't have a strong connection to any of the characters.
