The synopsis gave me the impression that this might be a dystopian novel. It's not, really. It's mainly fantasy in a dystopian setting. Knowing that Nora Roberts develops her characters well, I thought I might like this one. I did not. Her characters are developed well enough, but they're too impossible, as is the story itself.

MacKenzie Beyer's performance is mixed. She gives some characters distinctive voices, others are not distinct enough to recognize the difference between them during dialog.

If this is a series, I doubt that I'll follow it.
