Rating: Four Stars
I picked this book up a while ago at Thrift Books on a whim. I had money, I liked the cover, and I wanted to read another book by Lisa T. Bergren. I didn’t know how much I would like this book, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Oky doky, let’s talk about the characters. This book follows a girl named Andriana, an Alith, one of the few chosen by the Maker to save the world! *cue dramatic music* At first I was skeptical at the whole save the world thing. It sounds like every book. Ever. But it was its own unique book. I enjoyed it significantly. :D But back to Andriana, and the other characters. This book held many memorable characters. I have to say my favorite was probably Niero, the leader of the Alith. He seemed to have a story that I very much want to know. *narrows eyes*
Another thing I liked about this book was that it was love triangle free!!!! *throws confetti* You would think with all the other male characters about, that Andriana would start to like someone else besides Ronan, but thankfully no. I was very happy about that. I liked that in the book she could just have a handsome, male friend. Not have to have a triangle, and make them out to be a complete jerk. I love the Alith’s brother\sister like relationship.
The setting? Well sit down honey. Let me tell ya about the land we like to call *coughs* AMERICA IN THE FUTURE! Years ago the world was like destroyed (To be honest, I forget how it was destroyed). As a result, we have no advanced technology. We are transported to a time with swords, and all that cool stuff. No cars either, but we have motorbikes. Basically, midevil with motorbikes.
Another cool thing is that each Alith had like a super power. Okay, it was categorized a super power, but I like to say it was. Andriana’s is that she can read people’s emotions. I thought that was super cool!
The problems? Well, I thought it started out a bit slow. It just seemed to drag for the first 100 pages. Once you get past those, you’re stuck to your seat. Also, I felt like Ronan and Andriana went a bit fast at the end in their relationship. But I knew Lisa Bergren’s writing style, and I was expecting it.
As for who I would recommend this for, probably 14 and up. There was quite a bit of talk on the corruption of the city, and I wouldn’t recommend that for any younger than that.
