A Great and Terrible Beauty - Libba Bray Very slow with a rushed ending. The story doesn't really earn it's action packed ending. The characters become instruments of the plot too.

There was a lot of running around in circles in this book too, which makes the rushed ending harder for me to take than I would have otherwise. I felt like information was doled out in these little bits and pieces. Characters did two things that really bother me, not asking questions and not answering questions/telling the truth for no good reason other than to cater to the plot.

While I found this book boring at times, I was enjoying it until that ending. Knocked it down from 3 to 2 stars for me.
