I tried! I don’t like living books half way in. But I think it became kind of pointless to me. I couldn’t care for the characters no matter how much I tried.
It was definitely my fault.
When I started this book, or when I requested it from the publisher or (booklookbloggers.com if you are a book blogger go check that out) I didn’t know it was the third instalment of a series. The only thing I knew was that the cover looked freaking awesome and that it was fantasy YA. I tend to do that sometimes, and by sometimes I mean almost always. I see a book and If I love the cover I’m getting it and then I read the info, synopsis, expert, review, or whatever there is available.
When I read the info about the book and notice it was the third instalment, well, it was annoying. I figure I could read the others but I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment just yet. So I decided to read it, even though it was the third one from a series. There are books that even though they are from a series they stand on their own well enough that you can read them without reading the others and not feel like you came late for the party. But with this one that was not the case.
I don’t think it’s a bad book or series, judging from what I’ve read of it. I’ve seen reviews on goodreads.com and there are people that really love it. So I figure that the series most be pretty good. But this book doesn’t stand on its own and since that’s the only one that I’ve read… well, I wasn’t in love. The lead character felt a little annoying she has this whole Twilight-New-Moon-feel to it, in some levels. Like her whole love for the guy, I can’t even remember his name, and she is also fighting some evil that’s trying to overtake her while running to battle and forming an army. It sounds good, even as I write it. But in order to enjoy it you have to read the others first.
Now, to any fan of this book I think you are really going to enjoy it. People who read the series seem to like it and the plot feels pretty cool, but if you haven’t read the others you are just a late-party-comer. You will feel awkward and lost.
I’m going to leave you the links to the books here. Go check them out and let me know what you think. I’m pretty sure I’ll read them, eventually I just need to lower my tbr a little bit. lol
anyways go check them out and hopefully you’ll have an awesome time reading them.
