So I decided to judge for myself whether the hype around this one was justified. Sadly, I’m thinking not… The writing is lousy, the characters are unnatural and their relationships cliched. That said, it is an original fantasy world idea with room for development and I at least stayed interested enough not to tune out for most of it. Plus I have actually started the next one (although I feel kind of guilty for wasting an audible credit on such drivel) so there must have been something that sank its teeth into my guilty pleasures zone?! Maybe the movie is better…

2.5 stars.
