Will they learn to trust each other before it's too late?

Cuinn is a strong Ajna. He does not want to take a Adherant and become her Maven, be there done that, and it didn’t end well. So a debt is called in and he become Blaize maven. Can they beat the prophecies? With help from there friends they undergo a journey like no other! I read this book as an arc from NetGalley
Ok I admit it I'm a huge sucker for urban fantasy that has unique magic in it . These Energetics that live quietly amongst Humans have abilities to control elements using their inner Chakra magic. We meet Blaize whose primary power is kind of revealed by her name but she also has a secondary ability Ajna, meaning of the mind so she can dream walk but also far more frightening is the fact that potentially a trained Ajna can control others ! Blaize is sent to live with Cuinn, a reclusive Maven with a history he would really not like to repeat. They are instantly at loggerheads but things are happening in the Energetic world that means time is a luxury. This trainer and his pupil are up against rogue Energetics who want to start a war ! I was very much impressed by the ideas in play here but sadly the almost instant romance just didn't work for this reader. Blaize is cocky and opinionated and felt shallow. Cuinn quiet rightly given his age felt more mature but again the relationship and the speed with which it escalated just felt wrong and surely could have been built up over a couple of books ? This is an interesting world with possibilities and I'm very keen to know what happens next. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
