I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
The first half was great indeed. But it went downhill after the first half it became a bit convoluted and much boring.
I really liked the world-buidling and the main characters. Delia is an ok heroine - Simon, her nerdy side-kick, is actually much more interesting. The best part was their bantering.
But even that got old in the end.
And so I am probably not going to keep reading this series.
Not enough really interesting stuff. And no romance.
