Disclaimer: Not really a review since I didn't really read it. Obtained the book as a free Kindle download.
When the map of the invented world is lodged sideways and the print on it is hard to read anyway, that's not encouraging.
Opening is a lot of backstory; writing style is less than stellar. Could have used a lot of editing, critiquing before publication.
Can't evaluate story; didn't get that far into it. Not high on the TBR list.
