My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I think I need to write this down, otherwise I am risk of forgetting it…
I didn’t mind this book, I thought it was okay – I definitely don’t think it lived up to what I thought it would be. Her writing reminded me very much of Suzanne Collin’s Hunger Games. Nadia reminded me of Katniss, her love interests Peeta & Gale… and also the main antagonist a little of Coin. A little.
Some parts were really well written, the beginning was enthralling, almost an Assassin’s Creed feel with the jumping over rooftops. The visual was nice, and so was the world building – I just felt the characters seemed to jump straight from HG. Also Prim was here within her sister. I am sorry, this is true. I couldn’t unsee it once it came into my mind.
Overall, not a bad book per say, it was just a meh book. One I had hoped would give me more 😦
