Aeons once ruled the world with a power called Ethermancy. They reigned for centuries until a human faction called the Templars overthrew them. Now, their empire lays in ruin, and the survivors hide in every corner of the world.

Nahlia is a librarian’s apprentice who’s obsessed with Aeon lore. Until now, she had only read of their powers. But when the Templars attack her family, Nahlia is forced to infiltrate a secret academy and rise beyond everything she’s ever known.

Character

I've think I read enough to get a solid idea. First off, it starts off interestingly enough with a character on the run. No one knowing what she looks like or her name. Found out, forced to flee, chaos happens. The usual, I found it a rather nice way to really dive into the conflict to come. Then...it didn't really turn out like this. About twenty five chapters or so, it is shown her going through tests, getting acquainted with those people, pretty much going to school. I suppose they are trying to control her if I am understanding this correctly, but for the longest while, there is no excitement, or little really. I think on the slower end, the story does great in steadily progressing along, but there is a limit to this. Anyway, it does quite well in getting from point A to point B, no denying this. 

Style Score:

I do not grade this. One person can think it is the best, another can think it is the worst. I suppose in the least, it is consistent. 

Grammar, I do not believe I spotted any sort of issue. Probably there, but I haven't seen it.

Story Score:

It has some prose, not well done, but it is there. Due to the lack of it, or well, execution of it. It makes it difficult to become immersed in the story. On the other hand, it does pay attention to smaller details, going in deeper to explaining the finer points. Though, this in itself quickly became tedious. It is not bad, I found myself liking it from time to time. There is a conflict no less, but due to the whole kinda school setting, it sorta lowers that scale. 

Character Score:

I will be honest, I just did not connect well with the characters. Effort is shown, I can clearly see it. The problem comes in with the lack of depth to tie into these more meaningful moments. On one end, it shows the main learning, adjusting, etc. On the other end, it becomes difficult to tell not only what they want for themselves. Which I assume is not to be hunted down if I was following this correctly. Though, the other characters, I know they are there to like help her along, but it just isn't strongly gripping. It is difficult to put into words, this is no means a bad story. I can definitely see readers coming in, and giving it a go, which I highly do recommend.

Overall, it is a solid enough story. On the extreme slower end of things. Though, it does not disappoint on getting through its points. It has its own set of complexity, characters having their own drive I suppose. The only major problem I see is the pacing. I am a person that likes slower paced works, but there is a limit to that. The world building is great, no issues there. The attention to smaller details, and the interactions are okay enough to keep going. 
 
Note: I am working on trying not to give spoilers, and rather my impression from what I read. Though, I am trying to do this in a more balanced approach.
