I'll be honest this book hit me really hard and I'm a bit dismayed that in all the promoreviewshype I've seen no one's talked about how this is very heavily about depression and suicide Please be careful if you pick it up and you're not in a good place I honestly felt and I hope I'm wrong and that I misunderstood the book's intention that it had underlying tones of depressed people being a burden to society and their families This is so so dangerous to say And so so untrue Depressed people deserve love and support AlwaysI did have lots I loved about the style and the emotion the whole story conveyed as well as how strong and wholesome the romance threads were But I also love Narnia and this is absolutely Narnia fanfic and I'm so confused as to how that's allowed

You know if you can get past the off putting formatting and enigmatic writing style of this novel there's actually a pretty interesting story in itToo bad I couldn't get past the off putting formatting and enigmatic writing styleThis is going to sound like an angry review so before anything else I'd like to say this everything I dislike about this novel is purely on a semantic level I have no problems with its characters or its plot It's actually pretty sophisticated for a YA novel Like I said I actually think the concept for this novel has some really interesting ideas I moved a lot growing up so the feeling of missing home when you're at home is something I deeply relate toBut this was the wrong way of telling this storyThis book is told through the POV of its two main characters sisters Evelyn and Philippa Philippa's POV takes over during the second half of the novel but since that gets into spoiler territory I'm going to focus on the first half instead Evelyn's POV Evelyn's POV constantly shifts from past to present and it is so jarringThe whole constantly switching from past to present POV doesn't need to be necessarily a bad or jarring thing Tons of novels have used this format to great effect But here's the thing In most of those novels the author usually picks a time period that's important than the other one For example in Water for Elephants the past is very clearly the main focus of the story and therefore the chapters about it are much much longer and in depthIn this one the past and the present seem to be eually important so these two time periods are competing for your attention Both past and present chapters are of eual length and they're really short so just when you think you're getting into the really good parts of a time period WHAM Suddenly you're in a different time period with different characters and a different storyI do not like being dragged into a story only to be suddenly dragged out so I can be dragged into another storyThe book also changes time periods chapter by chapter and so some chapters feel really stale There's this feeling you get with certain chapters like the author didn't really know what to do and was really only writing the chapter because well the previous chapter was set in the past so now this one has to be set in the presentSo the present chapters just feature a lot of hackneyed romance and the past chapters just feature a lot of talking Man I sure love all this talking That's exactly what I started reading this high fantasy novel for the talkingA lot of the chapters are boring and unnecessary is what I'm trying to sayThis book also contains a lot of purple prose Certain uotes feel like they're overwritten Obviously purple prose is never a good thing but that's not even the main problem The main problem is that some of these uotes come RIGHT THE FK OUT OF NOWHERELike this one Tom nods his head slowly I'll go then As soon as you do I'll let you beLet my blood turn to ice Let me be a hundred years' winter I am Evelyn of the Woodlands walker of worlds teller of truthsGIRL CALM DOWN HE WAS JUST LEAVING THE ROOMI'm serious The boy she was talking to Tom All he did was ask politely to leave the room I have no idea why Evelyn suddenly wanted her blood to turn to ice and there to be an eternal winter like she's Elsa This happens so much throughout the book It's
