It does feel like it exists for a reason though and I liked Denna's growth I'm just not the biggest fan of books where a large chunk is training But I did love the overall growth and I still love the relationship between Denna and Mare DNF at 50%I had this book out from the library for over a month but hardly could make my way through it I ended up moving away and having to return this to the library which was a great conclusion to my everyday uestioning myself Should I DNF this? I was just bored I feel like I've read this story before in a 2013 generic fantasy It's a journey book with random side characters interspersed and nothing to anchor me to the story because the girls' relationship is getting distant as Denna explores her powers which in itself wasn't interesting either I wish I could've liked this but it was just difficult to read because I didn't care about anything that was happening even though I liked the girls' relationship in book one This book's dynamic was so different and I just couldn't get through it Maybe one day I'll try again I CAN’T WAIT FOR MY SOFT PRINCESSES TO COME BACK TO ME
