Fantasy /own

Btw is this YA or adult? I imagined everyone as very young. I get that it is adult, but it felt so YA. Everyone's feelings, doings, very immature.

Yes, this did not work at all for me. I was bored to tears. I did not connect to anyone. I did not care about anyone. I should have dnfed, but everyone loves it, and hell I know why.

There was no world building, no feeling, I know nothing about how anything or anyone looks. Things happened to people....yawn.

Big failure for me. I am so disappointed.

The emperor's reign has lasted for decades, his mastery of bone shard magic powering the animal-like constructs that maintain law and order. But now his rule is failing, and revolution is sweeping across the Empire's many islands.

Lin is the emperor's daughter and spends her days trapped in a palace of locked doors and dark secrets. When her father refuses to recognise her as heir to the throne, she vows to prove her worth by mastering the forbidden art of bone shard magic.

Yet such power carries a great cost, and when the revolution reaches the gates of the palace, Lin must decide how far she is willing to go to claim her birthright - and save her people.
