Rating this one is kind of hard. On one hand, I thought it was a fun and imaginative story. On the other, there wasn't much emotion involved which is odd for a story about a terrible plague in a place where there's also conflict over who should rule, and the main character has been hiding and on the run. Some really bad things have happened to the main character but she barely reacts. As I was reading it, it seemed that all the action and dialogue didn't have much below the surface. Which meant that this book won't be very memorable for me. The world-building also wasn't that great but maybe that will improve in future books.
