How I Felt: This
book is a roller-coaster, to say the least. My thoughts are a little
scrambled after reading this so I'll try to be coherent.
I definitely liked this book better than Red Queen, I thought it was a strong sequel. But I still had my issues with it.
still don't like the writing too much, although I did feel it improved
in this installment. I find so many repetitive phrases that just get on
my nerves every so often.
I liked the addition of the new
characters in this, and I loved all the action sequences. I felt like
they were well written and I could picture them all clearly. I also
loved how we got to travel around a lot in this book, it was so
interesting to get a better look at Norta.
I also really liked
getting to learn more about the people like Mare. It was so cool to see
how diverse they all were and how much they could whip the Silvers into
shape if they got together.
*sing-songs* I have a feeling there
is something going on with Farley and I can't wait for the third book to
see if it's true. *laughs maniacally*
I didn't really like Mare
too much in this book. I felt like she was acting very vain and self
absorbed most of the time thinking that this rebellion is all about her
when so many other lives are at stake. So I appreciated it when Cameron
was introduced and gave her a few reality checks. I understand it was to
add to her character development and help her grow as a person, but she
got a little annoying after saying the same thing for the whole book.
(*The next paragraph contains mild spoilers*)
I'm not going to say too much about him but at first he reminded me of
the guy from Men in Black who could see the future and that made me
laugh hysterically for a few minutes when I made that connection. Sadly I
don't remember his name but in short he gives me life. Until the end of
this book when I want to slap him silly.
had a feeling it was going to end that way. I see it in practically
every sequel in YA. I won't say what it is because I don't want to spoil
anyone but ohmigosh -__-
Now I must mention this
because it's something I am completely confused and undecided about and
it freaks me out in a good way. There is so much allusion to romance in
this book but it feels like every path and every guy leads to a dead
end. I don't know who to trust, I don't know who I like or want to
protect more. It's delightfully infuriating.
I really hope Mare
fixes things with her family and Kilorn. I don't really know what to
expect in the third book though, to be honest. I appreciate that going
into the next book, I have no clue what to expect. With this one, it was
like being thrown into a completely different world.
I will be
continuing on with the series because I must say I'm intrigued. Even
though tropes are layed on thick I still really enjoyed this one.
Cal and Kilorn must be protected at all costs.
Thanks for reading!
