What I Loved:
I loved this book. LOVED IT. I already want to reread it and I just put it down a week ago.

I loved the world-building so much. There are so many different forces at play in this world and the way they all connect and interact is fascinating. My heart was racing as all the pieces came together. The reader isn’t left in the dark; it was obvious early on who Johanna was. What kept the pages turning was seeing all of the characters come to the realization in different ways.

The story is told from multiple points of view and this works so well. There are so many important characters and I loved having their different voices and thoughts. Every point of view is unique because they all come from different places. Seriously, I loved every single character, even the ones who didn’t get POV chapters.

You know how I was talking about things I like in romances and I forgot about love-hate relationships. This book has the BEST love-hate relationship. I was so into it from the moment Johanna met Rafi. So much banter! So much hatred! So much tension!

What Left Me Wanting More:
The ending! I can't wait for the next book!

The Final Verdict:
The Storyspinner is a must-read fantasy debut. You’ll be dying for the next book.
