Not great literature, but nicely done and fun to boot. The romance isn't icky. The villains are interesting and the reveal is very intriguing. The title has almost nothing to do with the plot, but it doesn't matter to the story.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. Everything about it sounded awesome. But somehow maybe a third of the way in I started to feel dread about continuing the book. That is never a good sign for me. It has elements of things I absolutely love in a book and yet somehow I was bored. The narrator was excellent. Spellbinding, really. But the actual book seemed like there was no payoff. I just kept waiting for it to get good and that never happened. Some of the explanations about why the Fetch was after them didn't really make sense, why he was being compelled seemed like a weak reason, etc. There seemed to be long stretches of nothing happening, then a snippet of "now this guy appears and this is the reason"....then boring stretch and then " and now this guy is here because of this weak reason"...now boring stretch and on and on and on. I felt like it was 400 hours long and would never end and then suddenly it ended. And not very satisfyingly. I could have cared less at that point. I was just glad it was over.
The characters in the book had such potential to be interesting but in the end I only knew some little bits about each person and didn't really care about any of them.
