REVIEW-Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard

Summary:

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

 

WOW! GUYS! This was WAY better than I first assumed. After looking back on the blurb at the end of the book I’m a little dumbfounded. One of my BIG problems with this blurb is that it talks about angels, and humans, and…..

*Has no words*

ANGELS AND HUMANS AREN’T EVEN MENTIONED IN THE BOOK. The only time they get rarely mentioned is the EXACT QUOTE. It kinda makes me think the marketing department slacked off on this. This book is anything BUT angels and humans. If I were to compare it to anything, it would be an X-Men meets Royalty mashup.

Overall Reaction:

One of my biggest complaints about this book is the fact that this book harbors a few tropes that bothered the HECK out of me.

The Tropes:

  • A girl who discovers she has powers.
  • Thrust into a new society.
  • The DREADED LOVE TRIANGLE!!
  • Has a run down and overworked family.

While I do have to admit that some of the tropes are more original than others, there’s no CRAZY, GROUNDBREAKING, thing that changes the whole genre of fantasy. If you can stand tropes, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.

    One of my FAVORITE things this book are the powers, obviously. They’re just so UNIQUE and original, and there are no different types of people, everyone’s gift is different. I LOVE this because it shows that in real life NOBODY is the same and that no matter how close we are, EVERYONE is different. The plot was a bit confusing. We meet Mare, who

     The plot was a bit confusing. We meet Mare, who doesn’t have powers. Then, suddenly develops powers, flashes them off, and becomes a princess of a people who HATE her. WHAT? After finishing this book, I’m still a bit confused. Hopefully, the second novel will do better at describing the reasons behind why the characters made the decisions they did.

The setting wasn’t strong, but it wasn’t weak. What I mean by this is that the setting wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t the worst. It wasn’t anything compared to Harry Potter, but it was enjoyable enough so that it contributed to the AMAZINGNESS OF THIS BOOK.

Overall, with the problems that I presented earlier, I still do think that I’m going to give the second novel a try. The powers were just SOO amazing, and I can’t wait to get back to the fighting.

BLOG TOUR/REVIEW-Dragonwatch by: Brandon Mull

Summary: In the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven, the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens, but prisons and they want their freedom. The dragons are no longer our allies....
In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons, when he and his kind ruled and reigned without borders. The time has come to break free and reclaim his power.
No one person is capable of stopping Celebrant and his dragon horde. It will take the ancient order of Dragonwatch to gather again if there is any chance of saving the world from destruction. In ancient times, Dragonwatch was a group of wizards, enchantresses, dragon slayers, and others who originally confined the majority of dragons into sanctuaries. But nearly all of the original Dragonwatch members are gone, and so the wizard Agad reaches out to Grandpa Sorenson for help.
As Kendra and Seth confront this new danger, they must draw upon all their skills, talents, and knowledge as only they have the ability to function together as a powerful dragon tamer. Together they must battle against forces with superior supernatural powers and breathtaking magical abilities.
How will the epic dragon showdown end? Will dragons overthrow humans and change the world as we know it?

 

Wow! WHERE TO BEGIN? First, I wanna say thank you to Shadow Mountain Publishing, Before blogging, I  would have never even dreamed that I’d be able to interview a book that one of my favorite authors of all time had written. I never thought I’d be here, in my yoga pants typing my review of a book, with a newborn sister in between me and the laptop, and quickly typing as fast as I can before she stirs. I guess life has it’s surprising, right?

In short, I just want to say thank you to EVERYONE that contributed to my love of books, I am in your debt!

Anyway, now that the sappy stuff’s over, let’s dive right into this review!

For those who may have skipped the summary( I do too), Dragonwatch is the sequel series to the Fablehaven series. Going into this book, I had high expectations. It was one of the books that got me into reading, the author was SUPER nice, and the illustrations were always BEAUTIFUL. Needless to say, I had high expectations.

It’s not that I was disappointed, It’s just that I didn’t get exactly what I asked for.

It’s like ordering a hamburger, you want it right. If you ordered no bacon, then you expect NO BACON. But, on a rare occasion, the waiter decides to bring something different than what you expected. You like it, but you wish it had been done right the first time.

This is exactly how I feel going into this book.

One of the reasons I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would be because it just felt like a BIG, LONG, introduction. Yes, I know, the fight was ALSO amazing. But still, half the time the book was explaining this new world and I thought we were already past that, I guess I thought wrong.

I still liked it, but it wasn’t what I expected going into another Fablehaven book.

The characters were REALLY GOOD. It was weird, their voices sounded almost exactly like they were in Fablehaven. It was if no time passed between books. Brandon did an AMAZING job re-discovering all of his character’s voices, it REALLY paid off in the long run.

The plot was simple and yet complex at the same time. The world was REALLY interesting. It was nice to expand on it, add new things, but still, contain the mystery and wonder at Fablehaven. I do have to admit that I wasn’t as enthralled like I was when I started the Fablehaven series, but then again it’s WAY different. Things are the same, but there is a darker tone/vibe going on in the story, and I LIKE IT!

Overall this was a pretty good story. I would TOTALLY recommend buying it, and if you haven’t read the Fablehaven series, START! What’s keeping you from reading greatness?

Thank’s for reading this post, my names Jared, and I’ll have another post up soon, BYE!!!

REVIEW- Caraval by: Stephanie Garber

Summary:
Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

 

Overall reaction:

That was pretty good.

WOW! This was NOT what I was expecting. Going into this book, I assumed this would be like a carnival,  Clowns and Circus’s!

Boy was I wrong.

This is one of those books that you have to try it yourself to experience the magic. The summary doesn’t describe the book well, and it’s really one of those “Go into it blind” books. If that makes any sense at all.

Starting off, my review  One of the thing’s I LOVED was the characters. At times, I found myself physically (and mentally) gripping the book as hard as my fingers could hold,  it wasn’t even until the last half of the book I  truly realized how attached I was to the characters. The strong sisterhood vibes was beautiful, and the mystery surrounding it was amazing. 

One of the things I didn’t understand was the world. It was hard to latch onto, and their was little to no world-building.  The setting felt a bit dry, and unworthy of the characters. Through the course of the book, I had a hard time imagining the whole world, It ended up throwing me off. A LOT.

The ending felt a bit rushed, and I would’ve liked a bit more closure with the character and the world.

While the ending is okay, something I adored about this book was the beautiful description intertwined with the text. Sometimes, I would close my eyes and it almost felt as if I could actually smell the scent of the cinnamon apple scent in the air, or the salty ocean water hitting directly onto the characters face. It was INCREDIBLE!

Overall, this was a pretty good read, and I look forward to reading the next book.

REVIEW- Etiquette and Espionage by: Gail Carriger

 

Summary: 

It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to Finishing School.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners--and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. 

But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine's, young ladies learn to finish...everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage--in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year's education.

 

Overall Reaction:

Wow! I’m SUPER surprised. Going into this book, I had low expectations. Now that I’ve finished the first book, my expectations have been completely raised!

If you are a fan of Victorian Era novels and don’t mind a hint of Steampunk, you’ll have a pleasant experience reading this and I would HIGHLY recommend it!

The characters were a bit cliche, while I do admit this, the author added little twists to each of the characters making them different enough for it not to be boring or the same thing which caused me to overlook their dullness and continue with the plot.

The plot was only okay. While I did favor this story, The plot wasn’t AMAZING. It didn’t suck, it just wasn’t the type of Espionage I was looking for. Instead of FULL BLOWN fight scenes, we got little attack and runs.

One thing I LOVED about this story was  the finishing school that our MC goes too. I loved learning about how to be a spy, and all of the lessons were SUPER interesting, it also made for a very immersive world that kept building on itself chapter by chapter.

The writing style was GRAND! It really helped that the book was told with a voice that sounded like it was EXACTLY In the Victorian Era which totally got me into the mindset making the story more immersive and entertaining.

Overall, I’m fairly excited to read the second installment in this series, Although I’m not DYING of anticipation. It’s clean! The story is GOOD! Plus, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND for readers wanting to start in genre of Steampunk but want to take things slowly at the beginning.

REVIEW- The Enchanter Heir by: Cinda Williams Chima

 


They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre—the brutal attack on a once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors, Jonah possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of the mainline guilds. At seventeen, Jonah has become the deadliest assassin in Nightshade, a global network that hunts the undead. He is being groomed to succeed Gabriel Mandrake, the sorcerer, philanthropist, and ruthless music promoter who established the Thorn Hill Foundation, the public face of Nightshade. More and more, Jonah’s at odds with Gabriel’s tactics and choice of targets. Desperate to help his dying brother Kenzie, Jonah opens doors that Gabriel prefers to keep closed.

Emma Claire Greenwood grew up worlds away, raised by a grandfather who taught her music rather than magic. An unschooled wild child, she runs the streets until the night she finds her grandfather dying, gripping a note warning Emma that she might be in danger. The clue he leaves behind leads Emma into Jonah’s life—and a shared legacy of secrets and lingering questions.

Was Thorn Hill really a peaceful commune? Or was it, as the Wizard Guild claims, a hotbed of underguild terrorists? The Wizards’ suspicions grow when members of the mainline guilds start turning up dead. They blame Madison Moss and the Interguild Council, threatening the fragile peace brokered at Trinity.

Racing against time, Jonah and Emma work to uncover the truth about Thorn Hill, amid growing suspicion that whoever planned the Thorn Hill Massacre might strike again.
Going into this book, I had high hopes. Unfortunately, I was let down. It’s not that it was HORRIBLE, but it definently wasn’t an A+ either.
Overall Reaction:
      After coming from an EPIC trilogy, I was ecstatic to find out the fourth book was entitled “The Enchanter Heir”.  In fact, one of my favorite people in the previous books was an enchanter. I imagined this book would be full of spying, high stakes, manipulation,  and have of karate, making it the PERFECT book.
Unfortunately, what I got was a rip off, literally. (Do I have to say anything else)?
-Below are the covers of book one and book four-
Anyone looking at the covers? If you’re like any other person who can recognize the problem here, it’s exactly the same thing!
 Both MC’s are males. Their first name’s both start with a “j”. In both the books the MC’s are UNUSUALLY good at fighting with a sword, and live in the state of Ohio. Both also have girl sidekicks, but in the end we find out that they are WAY better at fighting than we would’ve imagined at the beginning of the book.
   Unlike the first book, this book doesn’t really have a good ending. It was MASHED together, and left a TON of strings undone. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THE ZOMBIE WIZARDS THAT SAID THEY WERE PLOTTING TO KILL EVERYONE?  WHAT HAPPENED TO EMMA AT THORN HILL? HOW DID A BOY ON FREAKING FIRE CALM DOWN WHEN HE MEETS A NORMAL, AVERAGE GIRL, WHO SAYS TO BREATHE SLOWLY? HOW ARE THEY NOT DEAD?
     Another thing I was let down with was that their was NO Enchanter power. AT ALL! The only way Cinda used it AT ALL was when she was describing how he always was SUPER buff and that he seemed to put a spell on the girl every FREAKING time they looked at each other. COME ON! He was more like a warrior than an Enchanter! Just cut us the time of  re-creating the same character and do a part 2 to the first book. I don’t know, just DON’T copy your same exact character as before (Even if it’s yours).
   Overall, I wasn’t a fan of this book and would just recommend that you read only the first three books in the series. Looking back, it was satisfying enough that it felt like an ending for me. I think I’m just going to forget I read this and stick with only reading the trilogy.

REVIEW- Heartless by: Marissa Meyer

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship.

Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
 

Goodreads-Heartless by: Marissa Meyer

 

Guys.

Guys

I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sad right now. What the even heck, I totally thought that I would like this book. I thought I would flail around and start to scream when the ending happened.  I thought that I’d love it as much as the Lunar Chronicles.

Unfortunately, none of this happened.

All I got was heartache when this book ended. (See the pun I made there)

One of the things I went into this book expecting, was that it would be like the casual Marissa Meyer book. Young. Female protagonist wanders through a world forced to do something she doesn’t want to do and end up defying all odds fighting against everything in her path. (With the occasional hint of mystery)  Unfortunately, the book was lacking in the mystery and defying all odds  department, which I consider a MUCH NEEDED ingredient to a good book. With the lack of mystery and a ton of pouting, it made reading this feel BORING and at times made me want to do homework instead of wasting my time reading something I clearly wasn’t enjoying.

The plot was SOOOOOO boring. Especially coming from something like The Lunar Chronicles, where the plot was so rich and different and plentiful.  If the whole plot of Heartless could be summarized in a single sentence, I’d say this.

This story follows a whiny baby baker girl who’s too scared of her parents to admit that she DOESN’T want to become the Queen.

That’s it. No surprises, no nothing.

Plus, I was super confused about the whole world and how NOTHING was explained. Why could Cath’s dreams become reality? Why did this book spend half the time talking about baking? What did the King see in Cath to propose to her anyway? I SWEAR, If the only reason that King liked Cath was for her baking I’ll chop off his own head.

Near the end, we are starting to see Cath change from herself, to well… The personality flip at the end with Cath was TOO sudden. In one whole day Cath changes from an amazing sugar cookie to……

Overall I was SUUUPPPPEEERRR bored with this book and would recommend you skip over it, unless you’re a super fan of Wonderland.

My top 5 most Anticipated 2017 Releases

Hey guys,

Now that I have finally accepted that it’s 2017. (I know, it’s crazy!) I decided to come up with my top 5 most anticipated reads of 2017! Let’s begin!

1. Caraval by: Stephanie Garber

Short Summary: YA meets the Circus meats magic

Release Date: January 31st 2017

Caraval, by Stephanie Garber has been on my radar for a while. The plot just sounds SOOOO Interesting and I’ve wanted to be reading more diverse in the fantasy genre.  I’ve also had my eye on it since it’s a debut novel and has a TOONN of praise from authors I love!

2. Carve the Mark

For those who don’t know,  Veronica Roth is the author of the Divergent series. I LOOOOVVVVEED that series (Especially the third book, unlike most people).

The reason I’ve wanted to read this is because number one, it’s a duology. (I’ve really wanted to read one. I never have tho..) second, It’s Fantasy. I don’t really know much about the overall plot because this book has been shrouded in secrecy. But, all the information we do know is in the summary below.  It comes out January 17th so MARK YOUR CALENDER’S! (HAHAH. Anyone else catch up on that pun?)

 

3. Wires and Nerve by: Marissa Meyer

For those who don’t know, I LOOOVVVEEE Marissa Meyer. Her Lunar Chronicles was BRILLIANT! One of my favorite characters in that series was Iko. A ROBOT OF ALL PEOPLE! AND WE GOT A GRAPHIC NOVEL, OF IKO! As soon as I saw this I freaked out!

 

 

4. Because you Love to Hate Me

 

I love a good villain. Who doesn’t love a good villain? It’s always entertaining to watch our antagonist and protagonist clash and fight and see the differences between the two. So when I found out about this, I freaked out!

For this anthology, a bunch of authors partnered up with other bloggers and together they wrote a book filled with 13 short stories all about villains. Is it sinking in yet? I know, I know, IT’S AWESOME! I am SOOO excited for this book! It comes out July 11th, and you can bet your bookshelf that I’ll be buying this ASAP!

5. Wonder Woman: Warbringer by: Leigh Bardugo

Anyone else noticed the recent influx of superhero novels being published by popular authors?  I have *Raises hand*

Have I read any of the superhero novels? *Lowers hand and starts to cry*  BUT THIS WILL CHANGE, SOON! This year I’m planning to read at least two of the many superhero novels out there.

That’s It! Those are my top five books I am anticipating this year, (There are more tho. I just don’t want to make this post SUPER long)

Thank’s for reading! My names Jared, and I’ll have another post up soon. Bye!

REVIEW- Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by: Rick Riordan

Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder-god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon–the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost. It has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki–and the price he wants is very high.

Guys. Guys. It was SOOO good. Going into this book I had high expectations because, hello Rick Riordan. I have LOVED EVERY book he’s came out with. So why wouldn’t I not like it now? Although I had a few problems, (That I’ll address later) it was a really good book.

The beginning. THE BEGINNING! What I’m about to tell you is NOT a spoiler for the book but it is one of the first plot points. (In case you want to go in knowing nothing skip ahead to the next paragraph) Basically Magnus and Samariah are meeting at this coffee shop because they have received a message from an unknown source that involves Thor’s hammer. They go, and well the messenger get’s KILLED in the first five minutes! It was a REALLY good way to kick off this amazing book making us as the reader realize this is a much more serious book than the last one.

The story was great, the setting’s were all great. But the thing that made this the best was the diversity that wasn’t present in the first book. In a way it made it more powerful because of everyone’s differences that really helped contribute to the plot to make it as good as possible.

Ex.

Samariah, daughter of Loki- Muslim (Only mentioned on occasion)

Magnus, son of Frey- Atheist (Only mentioned on occasion)

Hearthstone, son of a horrible father- Is deaf and speaks through sign language

Alex, son of loki.- Trans-gender (only mentioned once)

ALL of these things were JUST MENTIONED. Nothing actually was present except for Samariah mentioning that she was praying earlier.  While I would recommend this book to all of the Percy Jackson fans out there, I feel like as all of these characters in this world are growing up, fight’s are becoming more intense, plots more complex. It’s CLEAN though. Clean fighting, if that makes any sense at all.  🙂

My Favorite Character:

HEARTHSTONE. Hearth is a deaf elf and can only communicate through ASL. Did I also mention that he can use “Runes” to be able to do magic and a bunch of other awesome stuff. Reading conversations in ASL is SOOOO cool and different. I want to read a solo book just about Hearth!

While there were a bunch of awesome things about this book, Their were a few things that hated, badly. Let us begin.

First, I couldn’t stand how much Percy and Magnus are alike. Have a sword, son of a god, demigod, fights monsters, goes on quests, special privileges with gods. EVEN THE SAME WITTY HUMOR! (Which I love btw) I just think If Rick’s gonna make another “Norse” series that will eventually tie in with Percy’s story, you would assume he would try to make the characters different to make them more distinct and not the same.

The story wasn’t the most original book ever, but it was satisfying enough I’d buy the third one.

Overall Magnus Chase was pretty good and I would recommend you read it, just know it isn’t the most original thing out there.

Grade Rating: B+

REVIEW- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

cooltext133089402245467Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing – if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him?

cooltext133089343094800 Okay I’ve got a lot of notes on this book for the final installment of the Harry Potter series besides Cursed Child which I will leave the link below. Well without further ado, let’s begin.

  • One of the things that I think defines the final installment and makes it so good is the coming togetherness. Where all of the characters we’ve met through all of the series are all coming and trying to protect Harry Potter from Voldemort. It really brings on a whole new meaning about love.
  • Next, I loved the plot. It was very well thought out and I felt like it made a VERY satisfying ending to this amazing series!
  • SPOILERS!!!!!! Do not continue after this picture below if you do not want to be spoiled.
  • 136251
  • Fred dying killed me. Basically for those who haven’t had read this and spoiling this for themselves basically Voldemort attacks Hogwarts with all of his Death Eaters and followers. Harry calls all of his friends and basically anyone who’s anyone in the Harry Potter world that’s on the good side  So anyway they have a fight and needless to say people die. Fred, Remus, Tonks. Etc. but they manage to destroy Voldemort and everything is all happy.
  • Overall this book was a hugely satisfying ending. I miss the characters so much and are looking forward to re-read all of the Harry Potters this Summer.

Rating: 5/5

Review-Winter by: Marissa Meyer

cooltext133089402245467 Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?

IMG_20160614_162955

cooltext133089343094800 Okay did anyone else think they wouldn’t like this book a lot because of the little snippet and the end of Cress? I for sure did but I ended up being really surprised at how good this book ended! I love this series so much,  Words cannot describe my love for it! I actually did a review for the first book Cinder (I’ll link that below) DISCLAIMER: Cinder was my first ever review, and it sucked so if you would like to just go straight to Goodreads I would prefer you do that. But if you’re in a laughing mood go right on ahead! Anyway back to the review. I ended up loving this book way more than I was anticipating! I loved that as you were reading through the book you’d be coming up with theories for the end, and then a huge plot twist would come and destroy all of them! For those who have not read the series I’d pitch it to you as Fantasy + Terminator + Star Wars.

cooltext133089378843909Well I have to admit that sometimes I’d  just keep on thinking when does it end, but then a plot twist would come and would make this book amazing again!

Rating: 5/5 Stars

5 stars
