This just dragged. Having the book written in the past (present) and the future with the bard telling the story was too much. I got so sick of things. The past (present) has not caught up to the future and I don’t know if I have enough in me to continue to even try to read the rest of this series. I do like Chupeco’s writing, but the book gets away from itself so many times. I just didn’t enjoy it that much. I was glad to finish this since I am reading this for a book bingo, but was tempted to DNF it a few times. It just was a slog. I really liked the character of Tea and rather would have stayed with her in the past/present than jumping around the whole time. I just felt so removed from things by the end of the book.
