I mean, the surface aspects of the world building was developed and this whole society that’s very suffocating, oppressive, and demeaning on both women and magic users is pretty scary BUT the other parts do not add up. It’s actually an altern Born Wicked was a perfect example of a book that has both good as bad qualities to it. Further, this book was way too long. I didn’t even read the back of this book before I read it. After the death of her mother, Cate Cahill had to take on the responsibility of caring for her two younger sisters.

Or paid attention, at any rate. All the characters had their own personalitites and issues,and I never felt like the secondary charactors were just a backdrop to the action.
