I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
Formatting: I originally opened the file on my computer in Calibre to view before sideloading it on to my tablet. It showed up with no major issues. The formatting wasn't pretty, but it was readable. The only possible issue that I could see was that the page numbers were included in the text, which doesn't really work if you're reading a reflowable format. Once I loaded the book onto my tablet, I opened it in the Kindle reading app. The book was unreadable. There were no spaces between words, in some spots letters were stacked on top of other letters, and punctuation floated all over the screen. Since this was a mobi file, I was a little disappointed that I couldn't read it in the Kindle app. I was however, able to read the book in the Moon+ app after checking "disable all css". Unfortunately, if you "disable all css", the spaces between paragraphs disappear and you lose the indents that mark the beginning of a new paragraph. It is possible to increase spacing between paragraphs within the app, but I prefer to not waste too much time messing around with settings and to just read. I did not check the book with any other apps, so it might have been readable with Coolreader or any other app, but I can't say so with any certainty. The issues with formatting were most likely a result of converting from a Word document or pdf, however, I will emphasize that this was a review copy. I received the copy directly from the author before the book was published; any or all formatting issues may have been fixed before release. If you're interested in reading this book and my comments about the formatting have made you hesitate, I would suggest downloading a sample to view on your reading device before purchasing. Once again, the issues with formatting may have been isolated to this file.
Story: I was initially really excited about receiving a copy of this ebook. The summary was very promising; it had me picturing two strong female protagonists on a quest to defeat a dragon or uncover a horrible plot to overthrow kingdoms in some far away land. What's not to like? In short, the summary, while accurate, left me some want disappointed in the story I did read.
