There are plenty of sories on Royal road that start slow. This one doesn't. I enjoy a book that pulls my interest into the plot early on. This book does. The author writes a story that is the perfect amount of serious plot, funny and quirky charcters, and plot twists. The author excels at wrighting all the stories charcters as unique and emotionally complex individuals, which no easy task. Youll find no 2d-cardboard cutout characters in this book.
