3.5 stars

The dead will rise.

I liked the novelty Bardugo brought to the table with this one, along with the untrustworthy characters and exploration of darker themes. The ending was great as well. I really want the second book now.

The first half was a little laggy though and things didn't pick up for me until we started to get a glimpse into what made Alex who she is today. I liked all the bits after.

I could rate this higher, as high as a 4, but I do not feel any inclination to do so.
