#botmbuddyread This book kept my interest and might have been a pick - but the last quarter of the book ruined it for me. There are some issues with the ending that I‘ll put in a spoiler tag below, but it was disappointing to have such a weak ending after what had been a pretty strong story. I liked the setting and most of the characters as well as the mythology. Though I had issues with the ending, it was still a solid 3⭐️.

Redwritinghood I didn‘t like the relationship between Ji Lin and Shin. It was a little creepy to me. Also, I didn‘t like who the killer turned out to be and how everything ended so tidily. 12h

I should start off by saying I really appreciate a good historical fiction with likeable characters, especially if there's a mystery element. I also particularly enjoy magic realism, as well as cultural elements in a story. This book checked all of those boxes. It kept my interest and kept me guessing. The only thing I didn't like was the unnecessary romance, which made the ending not as perfect as I was hoping. Read for #BOTMbuddyread

Started with a bang, finished in a fizzle and somewhere abouts the middle, you find yourself thinking, “well, this is all quite ridiculous!”

dragondrool Agree. I was loving it until the magical realism got a lot too magical. 3d

Currently 37% done and so far I‘m… underwhelmed. Maybe it‘s because of the high expectations from all the raving reviews I‘ve read, but I‘m just still waiting for the story to start and get good.
