I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I think the plot of this story was very interesting, i liked it since the begining of the story, i found it intriguing and wanting to know what will happen with all the characters, it had a good pace and it kept my atention all the time. Sadly i didn’t liked it as i thought i would and i have several reason why, but most of them might be spoilers, so i’m going to try to keep it as away from spoilers as i can. Even if i didn’t loved the story, i still want to know what comes next and i know i will be looking for the next book.
The things i liked were the pace, the plot, as i said very interesting, there was a character named Akad who i was fascinated by, i liked him and the way he interact with others, specialy with his father.
The things i didn’t like was that sometimes it felt too repetitive in some actions,sometimes it was like i was reading the same scene again and i didn’t find any purpose in some of them
I disliked very much Marduk mostly because i didn’t believe in some of his emotion and some of his actions were too ambiguos.
Other thing i liked was the portray of how power and fear can make a person take decision otherwise wouldn’t be done.
I think that the story have some potential and i can see a lot of people liking it, i recomend to read the Content Advisory on the blurb.
