" I enjoyed the concept and some of the characters (Kendor, Alex and her boyfriend, the Tar) but thought Jessie and her personal story were boring and without personality. There was defiantly disconnections to realism, not overall I enjoyed the book although often I had to sit back and work out the confusing story in my head. At the beginning and at of the story, Jessie is narrating form the past but then we fall into the story. I think Pike should of had her jump in and explain more thoroughly before he ended the story so abruptly. The book was long and yet incredibly incomplete. I did enjoy Pike's style of writing and brought back Thirst memories. Jessie is terrible compared to Sita, though. I loved everything about and around Kendor. The war references were kind of boring, but Kendor recalling mysterious history had me intrigued. I'd love for this story to be greatly expanded in witch world 2 before Pike moves onto a new plot and Jessie will redeem herself. "
