Managed 141 pages but I'm bored. This book is not getting my attention at all. The world building is divided territories and monsters and the two factions who are in charge. Kate is the daughter of the baddie and August is the son of the goodie. The setting is bleak and dark, and whole Kate is a reasonably interesting character trying to prove she belongs at her father's side in charge and not shoved away in boarding schools, I'm finding August very dull and a woe is me type. Just not interested in where this is going.
