I really loved Sara Holland's Everless duology Havenfall sounded amazing, so I decided to read it once I got it.
Shall we cover the good and bad???
The Bad and confusing:
•While it kind of goes right into the story, it drags on and says or hint at the same things over and over.
• There was a lot of information that could have been added to the storyline and if Maddie's self deprecation and feeling sorry for herself were cut out of every few pages that this story really could have moved on a lot quicker and could have been more developed.
•Personally, I feel so cheated that the realms are mentioned repeatedly in this book and you get hints as to what the places will be like, but you never see any of them!!!
•Brekken. Why, as a soldier, would you run away back home if you witnessed a murder instead of going to the Innkeeper Marcus to begin with?🤷♀️
•It was pretty obvious who the bad guy was once he was brought into the story as a main focal point.
•Does Maddie's father not know about Nate? Ever? It seems very confusing how the father would never tell Maddie that Nate wasn't her biological brother..
The premise behind this book is fantastic! I love the realms and that the main character is not a princess or of royalty.
I REALLY hope the next book goes in detail about the realms and we actually get to see someone go in their realm so we know what it's all about. What really happened with the Solarians that caused them to be written out? More on the great (great?) grandma and her connection with the Solarians.
I hope their is little to no self deprecation and feeling sorry for oneself.
