I’ve been teaching summer school for the last two weeks and in my down time I’ve started reading Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett.
I’m about 1/3 of the way through and I’m not sure if I want to keep reading. So, I figured I’d give you guys a first impressions Friday and then decide whether I should finish it after.
Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett
Writing Style: The writing style for Onyx and Ivory is pretty simple yet intriguing. She writes from third person limited
Characters: So far, the characters are all pretty surface level. I have someone that I think will be he antagonist and I’ve already spotted what I think will become a love triangle. I’m hoping the characters just need a little more time to develop.
Predictions: I actually don’t really have any predictions. I think a civil war will occur but I’m unsure whether it’ll be in this book or the next. I do, however, predict that I will never actually like Kate.
Will I finish: Honestly, I’m on the fence. While I don’t hate the book, I also don’t find it very interesting. So far it kind of feels like the shell of a fantasy novel.
