What is wrong with me. WHY did I not dive into this series MONTHS ago? Oh yeah, I wanted to wait until it was all out. Welllllll, that didn't work and I don't regret it one bit. I Love dystopian novel and this series is a creature all its own.
I felt like this novel took dystopian and fantasy and combined it into a genre itself. Maybe that is alway a thing? I don't know. All I do know is that I DEVOURED this book. I was sick with the flu and wanted just something to get lost in and these have been on my shelf for a while. BAM I finished it in one day in between naps.
Mare is the ideal heroine. She is strong and fierce, as well as a true 17 year old. You see her strength and her will to protect those she loves, while also the nativity in her decisions and her mannerisms. It was nice to read a book with a teen heroine that felt like a true teen.
Then we had Cal.
ALL THE THINGS ABOUT CAL.
He was what I was rooting for and still am. He si the price who can shine. The one that could turn the tide.
But he isn't Mare's and that is that.
She has Maven.
ALL THE THINGS ABOUT MAVEN.
Do you see me not giving spoilers? Yeah, me too. I really did love Maven too. He has so much hidden and he has lived in such a shadow. A troubled prince who won't ever get his turn.
This book TOTALLY threw me for a loop at the end. I couldn't wait to jump into Glass Sword!
