I had enjoyed the story of "The Glittering Court" and was excited for this read. Mira seemed like the most interesting character and I knew that her story would be great. And it was- eventually. The story takes place during the same events of "The Glittering Court" and some of the beginning dragged when I already knew what happened. However, since we hit the girls get on the boat, the two characters are separated and Mira finally gets her story.
