Top critical review

I got so close to the end and then I just gave up.
There were too many character, many who I didn’t care for at all.
So much talking about things I didn’t care at all about. Metals and history and so on. It was just too much and it added nothing to the story. I hated being told things. Bombarded with information that just isn’t interesting at all. So much visiting places and talking to randoms. Too many people she works with with non of them being interesting or adding to the story.
I think I started really losing interest when
She went to the palace to find out about the job
BUT she has no control of her magic and if she glows she’ll be killed on sight
But she still went to the vampires she’s avoided all her life for a job
BUT. She’ll be killed on sight if she glows which she has no control over
I mean it’s said at least 5 times in that chapter alone.
Additionally she knows that the prince is watching her (he tells her That he is watching her many times) and she uses different types of magic that expose what she is anyway.
Which - shock horror- he sees.
It’s these really over done plots and moments that just send me running.
Sad it had really great potential.
Not for me.
