Following her death in a plane crash, Celine discovers that neither heaven nor hell is an option for her. Miraculously, she's transformed into the antagonist of the book she'd read prior to her demise. Now she must navigate this strange new immortal life, knowing that the antagonist's journey won't end well. Between covering up her devil ancestry in an immortal school and trying to understand her feelings for a senior apprentice, can Celine circumvent her impending doomsday to create a favorable plot twist?
There were a lot of unique ideas in this book. I loved how we learned about the world with Celine, and how creative some of the ideas were. I really liked the different artifacts used in the book, and how Celine tried to change things.
I loved Celine and Aaren the most. With Aaren ending up my favorite in the book. I liked how we got to see character progression, not just as they aged in years, but also how they thought about things. As the characters learned and gained new skills, they changed how they did things.
One character however seemed to have had their mind taken over by an evil twin version of themselves. I won’t say who so as to skip spoilers. But it was fairly unbelievable to me that they could have changed so drastically, no matter how many years had passed, or what they had learned. I had to force myself to finish the book because at that point it just wasn’t fun for me to read anymore.
I did like the fact that Celine wasn’t supposed to be the heroine of her book. And that even as she tried to change things, some things still happened the way they were ‘supposed to’ even as others changed.
Some of the characters who started out with strong personalities, faded into the background by the end of the book. And quite a few things were left hanging. Which makes sense since it’s the first in a series, but it still had that almost unfinished ending sort of feel.
