I don't know how to categorize this, so I am going with Sci-fi. First off, I loved Ms. Crane's Disillusionist series, which is why this was an auto-buy for me. And, it is nothing like that series, which is okay by me. Author's do not need to keep creating the same thing over and over again.
According to the goodreads star system, 2 stars means it is okay, and it was. The writing was actually 4 stars, as well as the world-building and plot. And there was a surprise twist at the end that I really liked.
But I really did not care at all for the main character, and that really brought down the enjoyment factor for me, and it became more of a slog to get through.
