Just a book fool.
The heroine is someone you can really root for. She does not whine and constantly make awful decisions and that in and of itself is a breath of fresh air. The romance and sexual tension is thick but its doesn't cloud the story and feels true to someone who has spent their entire life fearing (and killing) men. All in all it was predictable (at least for me) but I really enjoyed every minute of it.
I love reading! Love listening to book! I do photography and book trailers for YA authors and publishers.
The book's got a great romance that develops over time and it's not the typical YA insta-love. The setting is brilliantly brought to life and the hero and heroine ones you can truly root for! the concept itself is magnificent and it got me hook from the very first sentence. It never let go!
Kristin Cashore's Graceling, Fire and Bitterblue.
There's a scene towards the end where I though all was lost... It had me gasping and clawing and hoping for a happy ending.
The heroine comes off as typical modern American and not historical Breton this is possibly due to the narrator but the at least it is in part due to how the character is written.
I am, still thinking about continuing the series. Besides a glaringly obvious foreshadow and the random inclusion of some french (would have liked much more) it was a good story.
The book is set in what is now France, would have at least liked an attempt at french accents.
This book was fun to watch the main be disarmed as she becomes more armed. The characters were fun to get to know and watch on their own personal growth.
This YA story of an action heroine (an assassin) features a young woman (a teenager) who has an extended adventure after a relatively short period of training in the arts of her trade. To my way of thinking, she makes very slow progress, too slow for me to, say, want her to be a role model for another fictional action heroine.
Reading puts me in a whole new world and I have a large variety of books on my Kindle. Listening to audible is what I do to relax.
A unique storyline and a compelling listen. Couldn't stop reading this tale. Loved the main character, the story was told through her point of view. Loved the voice of the narrator. She did a fine job with all the voices.
I had to keep listening until the end.
This was an exciting, visual adventure with a twist of love. Great for both teens and adults.
While the story follows many of the tropes of its type, it is well written and excellently performed.
This is not the normal type of book that I go for but I was looking for something different. I loved the way the author spins the story and look forward to other books by them.
I loved the aspect of 'death' having many meanings. I loved the character development through the book and look forward to reading more.
I did not enjoy the way Erin read male characters. It was actually a bit hard to overcome in the beginning. If the storyline wasn't so additive I may have moved on to another book.
