First-Impressions: Tower of Dawn

Image result for tower of dawnFIRST OF ALL I JUST DISCOVERED THIS COVER, I’M NOT SURE IF IT’S “OFFICIAL” BUT IM IN LOVE.

Surprise, surprise, I’m actually beginning to enjoy it. Somewhat. Returning to Sarah J Maas’s world is like returning to an old and previously forgotten home, that for me I was practically a second home last summer, when I ripped through the entire Throne of Glass series.

I had intended to read loads of classics that summer, but instead I stumbled upon Throne of Glass, was instantly ensnared in the story, and so, there was no escape.

I forgot how much I loved this fantasy world. The world-building is absolutely brilliant. There are just no words that I have to describe it. 

I love the writing. It’s gorgeous and perfect, except I don’t always appreciate the constant descriptions, and I feel like sometimes it’s quite unnecessary the amount they go on. And those are about two of the things I love about this book so far.

That’s… kind of it. Aha. It’s also pretty boring. There are so many parts that are just really dull and I think this is so unnecessary like why is there a whole chapter on this, when is the action actually going to start? I’m still waiting. I’m 40% through.

So far I predict this to be a 3 star read. Maybe 3.5 stars. But I am enjoying it – but to be honest all I really love about this book is the writing and the world-building and the rest I am left to put up with.

What are your thoughts about this book? Speak soon!

  1. This book was pretty slow and I almost left it in the start but it’ll soon start developing at a good pace, or at least better than the current one, and I am sure you’ll love it, especially when you get to the part with the Rukhin riders.
