Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
WOW! I was a little nervous when I first heard Kresley Cole was taking a break from her IAD series to write a YA novel. But, I gave it a try and was NOT disappointed. I really LOVED this book. As always, Ms. Cole is amazing at story-telling and world building. She is brilliant at character development and her imagination is genius! Emma Galvin is a PERFECT narrator for YA books (she is one of my favorites).
It’s been a long time since I’ve been considered a “young adult” but I have to say I absolutely love this genre. (Dare I say I have a crush?)
This is definitely a credit worthy read, especially for fans of YA and/or Kresley Cole.
It seems all the rage these days to write a trilogy leaving the reader wanting and waiting for more (those evil genius marketing people) . I usually try to stay clear of reading a series until at least 2 books are complete, however, I gave this one a shot after seeing many positive reviews.
BEWARE: there is a big cliff hanger at the end
If you like a good YA story and don't mind waiting for a complete story resolution I would highly recommend this book. I was immediately drawn in and I enjoyed the high-tech dystopian society that Veronica Rossi has created. This book made me laugh, cry and scared me a little too. It had the right mix of everything.
I love YA books and I never expect any of them to be literary classics. I read them for pure pleasure and the joy of an easy read.
It's hard to write a review of this book without giving away too may spoilers, so I will keep this as general as possible.
This book is amazing! If you loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone (a must read on my list) then you will LOVE this book too. It's darker then the first and not as much romance (to my disappointment) but it is exquisitely written and the story will suck you in from the beginning. Once this story gets going you will find it very hard to stop listening. I was obsessed!
I was happy to see Zusana is back (she is one of my favorite characters) and there are many new ones introduced in this one.
I wouldn't suggest picking this book up before reading Smoke and Bone as it might be too confusing given all the new character developments.
As before, Khristine Hvam is brilliant at the narration. Thank you to Hachette Audio for sticking to a narrator that works!
I highly recommend this book/series and I can not wait for the next installment.
5 Stars all around
