When I started reading this story, my impression after the couple first chapters was that the heroine of this story was quite bratty, but after continued reading I was really glad to see how much she grew and progressed as a person.
There was a lot of adventures and obstacles she faced, which drew me instantly in and I could actually see myself in the main character’s shoes and of course what would a great adventure be without romance. I liked how the heroine didn’t fall for the hero instantaneously, but it was something you wanted to see grow. No just add water for instalove here.
The only issue I have that stops me from giving this story full 5 cupcakes is that it ended way too soon. It left too many questions open and unanswered at least for me that is. For example what happened to certain characters after everything happened? It’s as if some of them disappeared.
Rating- 4 out of 5 cupcakes.
