This book wasn t even on my radar until I picked up a free ARC at YALLfest and it sounded super intriguing so I thought I d give it a go I also thought for some reason it was an Asian fantasy it is sooo not so I was excited to read it I hadn t heard much about it either so I didn t know what to expect Sadly I ended up being disappointedThe main issue I had was with our main character I hated her In the beginning she s a TERRIBLE person She kills people for a living basically but she feels absolutely nothing No remorse whatsoever She doesn t seem to care about anyone but herself She even kills someone that she s been working with for four years without batting an eyelash over the possibility that he would spill her secrets view spoilerYes she s doing it all for her sister which you find out later but that only makes it marginally better She still felt absolutely nothing over it hide spoiler
