My Thoughts

 

 

There's a lot of reviews out there for this; so I'm going to keep this short.  Sometimes RL can really get in the way of your overall enjoyment of a book, and while I tried not to let it reflect in my overall rating of this book…it did make it so I was unable to stay focused while listening to this.  Although, the middle did drag and seem rather blah at times.  I don't know if it was me or the book, half the time. 

 

 

The site where I found the map above is really interesting…a grishaverse wiki…this really helps to fill in the gaps where I've missed pertinent info due to my spacing out.
