FINALLY!!! Finishing this book was a chore! I have to say, on the whole I didn't really care for it. I am surprised by this because I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I stuck with it, though, in hopes that this was the low point for the series and the next book will be great. I just couldn't stay interested in the story. The story jumped all over the place but seemed to just be going over the same things again and again. It just dragged. And it was a downer.
