A thousand stars for this book!
*praises beautiful cover*
Release date: September 29th, 2015
I am beyond excited for the chance to read this book in advance. Now, I can fangirl in secret about this book until it comes out. I can’t wait for you all to read it and experience this story. This is my first visit to the Grishaverse. I am on of the few who read this before reading Shadow And Bone. So, this is basically the first Leigh Bardugo book I read. And I can’t wait to read the Grisha trilogy.
The thing I loved more about this book were the characters. When I read a book, I look forward to connect with the characters and if I can’t connect with them I really don’t care about the story. I want them to exist in real life. We have six main characters but the central focus is on Kaz (OMG!!). The first character I connected with was Inej and I love her so much, she’s my new favorite female character and I want to be her. So my favorites are Kaz and Inej, but Nina is perfect too. And Matthias, Wylan and Jesper are amazing as well. Sincerely, I loved all the characters and this was a fact that drew me more into the story and I couldn’t stop reading. I was sad to finish the book because now I’m going to miss them until the next book comes out.
I loved how the story was developed and how it was surprising me every time. Another thing, the romance. This book is not a love book, though yeah, it has “romantic” parts. I can’t talk about this a lot, but yes, there’s romance and in the way I like, the I love you but I’m not going to tell you because I’m full of pride. I mean, I wanted more but this was enough for me for this kind of book.
I can’t wait for you all to meet this perfect squad.
Still not sure you want to read it? Check out Brittany’s review here. She’s the one who hooked me with Leigh Bardugo and thanks to her I could let all my fangirling out.
