When I first started this book, I was under the impression that this was written in a woman's POV. The woman on the cover isn't our MC, like I originally thought. She's trouble.
I was feeling lukewarm towards this story at about 45% in but it really picked up pace at about the halfway point. I liked the characters and having ink myself, thought that the idea of mixing potions into ink was pretty intriguing.
The characters were my favorite part though. I probably will continue this series later in time but I don't have the urge to get my hands on the next in the series immediately.
