I'm on the fence with this book. I really liked the setting of it and the way the author described things. I like the main character--she's not overly whiny and she doesn't go 'round and 'round on her decisions. She has a plan and she does what she needs to to see it through.
I didn't like the romantic pairing, however. It felt rushed: one minute they hate each other and the next thing I knew, BAM! They're in love...I ended up reading backward to see if I missed a chapter or two by accident.
Story is interesting enough for me to keep going, though. Hopefully the parts I didn't like will smooth out over the course of the next few books, and more of the aspects I did like will be there to keep me around.
