I honestly had no idea what to expect when I pre-ordered this book, but since it’s by Marissa Meyer I figured it had to at least be decent.
The real issue I have with so much YA romance is that it’s too wrapped up in itself. This is not a book suffers from that issue. The romance doesn’t even really start till almost halfway in. The characters have goals that do not remotely relate to having or getting a romantic partner and they genuinely care about and are passionate about things other than falling in love.
I became invested in Prudence and her life quickly and wanted to know more and more. The last third of the book had me on edge the whole time and I couldn’t stop reading it. And the end? I was grinning like an idiot and incredibly satisfied.
5/5 stars. I loved this book and I hope you read it too.
