This was typical for me.
Things were really predictable and it’s been done.
Typical girl has rare power, typical girl has a big, horrible thing happen (like a family death), typical girl teams up with broody man with big dark secrets and his teams of rebels, typical girl falls for broody boy and broody boy falls for typical girl even though they both didn’t plan it. Broody boy makes rash decisions and typical girl makes rash decisions completely forgetting about the power play at hand and only caring for each other. Things end on a happy-like-well-kind-of note and now we wait a year for the next book to get more predictable things for typical girl and broody boy.
Oh and there is going to be a love triangle or two, mark my words.
I mean, there was seriously nothing wrong with this book. It held my attention okay and the characters were a little too flat for my taste, but I have read a lot worse. I think this would be a great book for someone getting into the fantasy side of young adult or someone who just has a unquenching love for the genre itself. I just need more from the characters and a twist that makes me fall out of my chair and I didn’t get that out of this book.
