Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau

To be honest I didn't enjoy this book very much . If you are a person who enjoys a court thriller, with a touch of magic, this is for you. Don't get me wrong, I love magic, it was the court thriller part that got me.
The story is about a sister and brother's fight for the throne of their kingdom, called Eden. They, basically, try to figuratively and literally stab each other as they compete in the trials for the crown.
The book ends with many loose ends and it really is too dark for my taste. Now to be fair, there were parts of the book I did like. For instance, the sister has a friend who is loyal to her and helps her escape her brother's lackeys. Although I did like parts of the book, there were more parts that I didn't like.
