So I had my son pick 5 books off either my book shelf or the kids and this book was one of his books.
I thought it was good for the start of a series. Did it blow me away, no it didn’t, did it Suck? No it did not, but it was a interesting book and makes me want to read the next book in the series.
In the book the main girl character was Duece and the main guy character is named Fade. Out of the 2 Fade, which is a guy in case you didn’t know. I thought he was the most interesting character to read about. I like the girl character Duece on, but she didn’t blow me away. I didn’t like her very much at all until the second part of the book. I didn’t like how the young ones were called brats. The freaks, who the characters of Duece and Fade have to hunt and kill before they get killed by them.
It was interesting watching them having to hunt down these freaks. I can’t remember tho if it was mentioned what exactly the freaks are and how they came about..
So anyways at first there below the ground but something happens and they both get banished, and then they go above ground. The first part of the book is setting up what is happening below ground and why those 2 characters are banished. And the second half is what’s happening above the surface and the adventures they encounter along the way. Its not a spoiler because it’s mentioned in the flap of the cover. The above ground parts are my favorite parts of the book.
It is a trilogy and I am going to read the next book in the series as well but not until probably July or August.
Next book I am going to start reading tomorrow is A Reaper at the gates, since Amazon screwed up and sent it out early.
I really thought this was a really good book, but its definitely not as good as the six of crows. I did really enjoy both of the main characters of Enne and Levi. The reason I said that it wasn’t as good as Six of Crows is because it has been compared or at least mentioned that it has a six of crows vibe to it
I just think why I don’t think it’s as good, is because Levi isn’t as tough or as cunning as Kaz.
I did love the cast of characters and thought that Enne really started to get stronger as the book went on. Levi I really liked but I think our of the two Enne grow a lot more as the story progressed. I did like that while you know those two likes one another it wasn’t even close to being the main part of the plot.
I really wish it would have had a better ending than it did at least that’s how I feel. I also figured out a few things before it was even revealed. Those two reasons are why I didn’t give the book 5/5 stars l. But it was a very fun book to be able to read. I also liked and this isn’t a spoiler because it’s mentioned in the blurb. But I loved that Enne was the one that had to save Levi.
I am so happy that owlcrate put this book in there April crate
Wow what a one hell of an amazing and fantastic ride. I just can’t believe how much I love this series so far. I am so in love with Elias, and watching him suffer all the time really hurts my heart a whole lot. Boy can’t this guy freaking have a little bit of happiness in his life. I am sure A Reaper at the gate is going to freaking hurt or maybe even break my heart. Why what goes down with Elias in this book is a freaking mess. Darn it I want him to have some freaking happiness in his life.
Laia I love so much as well and I think she has grown up a lot in this book and I hope that continues .I didn’t care for something that she did in this book but it had to happen in order for what she finds out about to make so type of impact. And it’s interesting in regards to something that she is able to do in this book.
Helene I just don’t freaking care about her at all and I don’t know if I ever will like it. I don’t like what she’s becoming at all. I hate to admit this but I found myself staring to skip the pages that has her point of view in it. I really don’t care about her family and what she is going through at all. I know that sounds harsh but I can’t help how I feel about her. I really want to like her but every time she is the main point of view I like her even less than before.
Marcus I can’t stand either but I understand him because he’s just plain not a nice individual. Helena i just don’t understand how can do the things she’s doing. Before that certain thing happened towards the end of the book I could kind of understood but after that could place I just can’t understand it. I really hope she is able to change my mind about her.
A lot of killings again in this book and a lot of things took place that were really important and interesting developments .I can’t wait until next month for the 3rd book to be released
Just have to say I just loved the book a whole lot. I have a favorite new character in Elais. I love how real he is and how much he wants to do the right thing even if he gets killed because of it. I like Laia and at the beginning I didn’t think I would like her at all. I am so happy that it didn’t turn out that way. I am still not sure on how I feel about Helena. I don’t hate her but so far I really don’t have any feelings about her. I know I can’t stand Marcus or Keegan at all.
I loved the book so much that I started reading A Torch against the night now. When I had two other books that I had planned ahead of this one. Definitely one of my favorite reads this year
I am really enjoying this book, but wow is it a pretty violent and very brutal storyline. I really love Elias so much and I feel so sad for him because of what a awful and violent mother he has. I also really love Laia and feel sorry for her because of everything that has happened to her in her young life. Can’t wait to see how this book ends. I have book 2 and plan to read it sometime this month
But after this one, I have at least 1 or maybe even 2 books that is ahead of the next book. And I already preordered the 3rd book as well!!!!
I am so sorry I haven’t been around. I have been babysitting my nieces and nephews, so haven’t had much time to do any reviews lately. After the end of this month, I won’t be babysitting. So I will have more time to do reviews. I have been reading thou, and have a lot of books to review.
Hope everyone is doing well and have read a lot of awesome books!!!!!!
I really think this was a very interesting and dark take on the little mermaid. I really enjoyed the two main characters a lot. Of course I always seem to enjoy the guys more. But this time I loved both Princess Lira and Prince Elian, almost the same. But I am actually going to super my followers and myself by given Princess Lira the edge. I am really happy that she stuck to her guns and didn’t let people boss her around.
I really loved the whole book from start to finish, it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I loved that it took place all over and not just on land. I really loved how Prince Elian’s group of pirates, etc, were so loyal to him. And I just loved the whole adventure.
