It had been well over a month since reading, Iron King, so Winter's Passage was the perfect segue back to Iron Daughter. I was reminded of the story, character's and why I wanted to continue with the series.
Just a bit too repetitive for me. I wish the author had assumed that if I was reading Horde I knew the back stories and did not have to hear it again with every battle. Everyone's stories were tied up neatly.
If it looks like a duck and acts like a duck, then it must be a . . . well Outpost is the second book of a series and it acts just like one!
Outpost is repetitive - for the reader who did not bother with Enclave it must be great, for me - not so much.
Outpost also ended like the second book of a series - push me out to the edge and leave me there hanging, for me - too painful.
And for me, a sap, I'm not happy when you mess with relationships that need not be messed with.
So, I give Outpost a 3.5...
After having multiple students suggest I read Enclave I relented. I am so very glad I did. Enclave was a pleasure to listen to. Often times when listening to a book I will walk out of the room without pausing the book. I did not do that with Enclave, I did not want to miss any of the action. I will be reading the rest of the series.
If you start with the title, you might think you have a good idea of where this tale is going. However, you would be wrong; Cinder is so much more. Fairytale, sci-fi, romance, bildungsroman, there is just so much to this story. I have not been so completely captivated by a book is some time. A great read!!!
It is not easy to find books for male teenagers, however, I believe Keeper is going to engage my students. I have no interest in soccer and was totally captivated.
Ever since my academic years I have had a fascination with Frankenstein. When I found Oppel's accounts of the young Victor, I knew I had to read his novel. I believe Shelley would appreciate this tale that introduces and develops the Frankenstein we meet in her novel.
I won't be reading another John Green book for some time. I loved The Fault in Our Stars and enjoyed Looking for Alaska, but Paper Towns was just too similar to LfA to be enjoyable.
If you have not read Looking for Alaska, then by all means read Paper Towns, I'm certain you will enjoy it. You will love Q and his friends and Margo will keep you questioning.
There is not a character in Palacio's novel that does not feel completely authentic. I would love to read more of Auggie's story, he is truly inspirational.
This is a must read for all.
It's a wrap.
I realize that technically I used four words, but, my review, my prerogative. A short novella to tie-up several loose ends. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll stop here.
Loved the entire series. I'll now move on to Kagawa's companion series, Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten.
Let me just say, I believe in the adage, "If you don't have anything nice to say..." However I will suggest that you listen carefully to the preview before you purchase this really good READ.
