Triona Campbell created a whole new world in a short book in immense detail and vivid colour. There are a limited number of characters, giving more chance to really develop their personalities. Asha grows as a person over the story and really comes into her own.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s like a mix of Ready Player One and a murder mystery. I would recommend it for any avid reader. Specifically however, for readers who don’t mind next to no action until the end of a story. But I would happily read it again.
