How much did I enjoy this book? Let me count the ways. It was seriously entertaining, I will tell you that right now, and I dug right into the mythology of the book, enjoying how enriched it was. It is definitely an intriguing and captivating world build, especially for someone like myself who loves reading about myths and legends, especially pertaining to Atlantis.
You want to talk characters? Well let me tell you that this book definitely has them, and those people? They’re filled with sass.
Rune alone made me laugh out loud, shake my head in dismay and hurt for him, all in equal measure. He was born into a blessed life, but as you learn through the book that doesn’t mean your life will stay that way. His definitely does not, but he deals pretty well.
Now Rune with Bran? That right there is freaking gold. The camaraderie and the back and forth between the two characters seriously makes this book for me. They are hilarious together.
I was a bit worried the plot of this book might lag in certain parts, but found myself following through it pretty easily. It was quick moving, and never grew stagnant, instead it remained entertaining.
