*Trigger Warnings* (contains spoilers)
I received a copy of Aetherbound in exchange for an honest review.
I went into this book with high hopes. Space Opera and a queer storyline. However, I was a bit disappointed. The storytelling is slow paced and more following the characters personal growth with a sub plot of a rebellion.
I really enjoyed the concept of Magic in this book and how you're born with a specialty. I even enjoyed the characters, Pendt, Ned and Fischer. It was their fates that kept me going through to finish the book. This book has a very YA feel but with very adult themes which was a bit odd and could be uncomfortable to some.
Overall I did enjoy this book and would like to see where the author takes the next book and adventure.
