Ignited by A.M. Deese

“Jura imagined it sounded like rain.” 
Juggling death is nothing new for seventeen-year-old Jura, daughter of the First of the Thirteen, successive rulers of the Republic of the Sand Sea. However, when a blood chain ensnares her father, she is thrust into the seat of power and forced to rule her elders. 
“To Tylak, water had never tasted sweeter.”
Jura must track down her father’s assassin and balance a country on the verge of collapse. To find the Prince of Shadows and uncover the truth, Jura puts her trust in Tylak, a former slave accused of stealing from the Everflame—a man she once condemned to death. 
In a world where water is currency and enemies lurk around every corner, Jura will use her wits or risk igniting a world war.

 Ignited by A.M. Deese was pretty slow at first. I fell like this book could have been absolutely amazing but it fell short. It felt like something should have happened multiple times but it didn't. I don't know. I didn't find myself being overly interested in the characters or the plot. I was hoping this book would be the next underestimated YA novel. Since I am not overly invested in this book, I will not be reading book two.
