When circumstances for Infinit? send her right into the path of royals, she ends up finding that she has wonder abilities - and thus, is made a respectable who is set to marry the other of two princes in order that the reigning regal family will keep an vision on her. Meanwhile, an uprising is gathering through the country, and Infinit? needs to figure out who she is and where her loyalties lie.
This particular one was hard to review because on one hand, I found the story very compelling, but on the other hand, there were lots of little things which i just could not get into. I've busted them down below.
Things That Frustrated Me:
The heroine: my biggest frustration with this book was the lack of character development in Mare. I didn't feel like I proceeded a journey with the girl as a character at all - she was kind of sassy and funny, and she plainly had some cool capabilities... but that was it to me. I didn't feel like That i knew of her at all by the end of the book because she was the same person the entire way through. That was hard for me to link with.
The romance: There have been (count 'em) THREE love interests for Mare in this book. None of them really go anywhere big, but it really felt like every friggin guy in the book was into her. The hardest part about that is the fact there is an evident choice - I genuinely thought that one guy was better than the others, and that just makes for a love triangle (or square? ) that's unsatisfying.
The writing and the " I've Read This particular Before" feeling: There would be occasions that I actually really was into the writing and then I would get pulled out of it by only a few too many cliches. Here are some examples:
" I'm located on the balcony a full ten seconds before I realize it's raining, washing me clean of my boiling anger. "
To me, this is merely evident writing - because there could have been a better description of the character's anger or maybe the rain or perhaps the fact that the girl was being cooled down by the rain... but it just eventually ends up lost in cliche.
" This particular is the world I'm seeking to bring down, the world trying to eliminate me and everything I actually care about... I've never felt smaller than I actually do now, with the great bridge looming above us. It looks ready to swallow me entire. "
Again, the writing feels very obvious. I actually feel like I've read this line before - " bring down" " never felt smaller" " swallow me whole" - it feels a little tired.
The tropes: Typically the problem with evident writing is that if you have a story hat relies on a great deal of tropes (poor girl who's special and different; prince that is not excited about being prince and just wants to be normal, world that is separated into classes that needs to be overthrown), you can guess elaborate going to happen, as well as your mind tends to stroll. Also because of that, every scene starts to feel expected, and you notice every trope for what it is, instead of the trope extending beyond only a trope. It's frustrating because I actually couldn't help but notice and compare this book to a ton of other YA books (I thought of The Selection, Divergent, Hunger Games, even Harry Potter while I actually was reading), and the book never went past or did anything better or different with those tropes.
Things I Enjoyed:
The world-building and idea: I liked how the Silvers and Reds were divided and how there is hierarchy even among the Silvers - there were higher and lower residences and they each experienced distinctive features. I loved getting into this world through Mare's eyes - as a Red, the girl really doesn't know much regarding it, and it's both interesting to see it develop and see the girl thoughts on it in her unique position.
Typically the princes: There are two, and they are both interested in Infinit? romantically. To me it felt very evident who the superior prince was, but I liked that they were well-rounded and different enough that they kept me guessing on their true natures. I seemed I knew more about them than I do about Mare by the end of the book.
Julian, the elderly wizard Silver who has Mare's best interests at heart and is awesome: It is a traditional fantasy trope, but damned if I didn't enjoy Aveyard's version of the mentor. I especially enjoyed the detail of how his skin was like the parchment that this individual read so much of, his abilities, and his secretiveness about his own life.
The villains and layered secondary characters: I'm not going to let you know who the villains are because that's complicated, but I liked how many of those there were, and how much all of them inspired and encroached on Mare's life. I also enjoyed how a lot of the characters in the novel weren't all black-and-white - some of the people who were expected to be " good" weren't exactly the nicest or best people, and EVERYONE in the novel lied to you in order to get what they wanted. It's a dark view of life, but it worked.
Typically the fast pace and the action: This is probably the first fantasy book I've read in quite a long time that I haven't put down because it had too much exposition or description and not enough action. The action scenes are pretty explosive, and the pacing moves quickly to bring the action to move.
The Final Word:
Reddish Queen is a very enjoyable, if derivative, fantasy read. Brimming with action and classic speculative fiction tropes, this is a good book for more youthful teens new to fantasy or searching for a book with magic to devour like popcorn. I wanted more depth in writing and character, but there's no doubt that I had fun while reading., 10 superstars and more.
Brilliant! I read many people going on and on about how precisely that book was great and they loved it and…blahblahblah. I was practically fed up with all the rage.
But I wanted some dystopia so I thought “why not? ”. I actually was in for a major and delightful surprise. I chop down head over heels in love with that book.
You want a solid dystopian story with many complex and interesting characters? Don’t look further, this is your book.
The plot real quick:
In a future “post nuclear war” world, the earth is inhabited by two sorts of species: the silvers, bleeding silver, talented with incredible abilities and the reds, commoners without anything special. The whites are slaves to silvers. Opposing silvers factions are tearing the country apart in a war going for centuries and the whites are their cannon hitch. All red unable to find a job at the era of 18 is conscripted and sent to battle.
Mare Barrow is a red, with no real prospect except going to war. She is a thief, the girl sole talent to help feeding her poor family. On a day of doom, a silver may help her and hire the girl as a servant for the palace. Literally included a pit of open fire, she’ll reveal unexpected power. Soon a game of deceit and lies will begin. As a rebellion is brewing, Mare will endeavour to fight for a better world.
Trapped between a cruel california king, a frightening king and two handsome princes, she’ll have to guard her back and choose who to trust. But will she choose wisely?
It was fast paced, packed with plots, deceits and lies. Never a boring moment, I was always on my toes and kept reading and reading. Unfortunately, I had to work and sleep…
Typically the characters:
-Mare was incredible. She progressed from a resigned and quite mousy girl into a fearsome and audacious girl. She had to take drastic actions but wept each time someone was hurt in the process.
I adored when she kicked Evangelina’s butt (Cal’s witchy betrothed).
She also made mistakes and paid the price. What the girl lacked in power and knowledge she made upwards tenfold in courage and determination.
-Cal was righteous and dutiful to a fault. He sometimes lost his cool but commitment and duty were so ingrained he could not allow his feelings to get in the way. He or she was torn between his wants, his desires and what was expected of your pet. A warrior at coronary heart, he tried to protect Mare to certain degree. At the end of the book, having been wonderful and I guess his fire will explode in book two. Oooh, I actually can’t wait to see him in action! I actually hope he’ll destroy the traitors.
-Maven was Mare’s ally. He was encouraging, protective, caring and many, many other things. Always second to Cal, the forgotten prince… He was also packed with surprises by the end of the book.
I also loved all of Mare’s relatives and buddies. Typically the rebels were also interesting characters as well as Julian, her mentor and instructor. A willing hermit in his own collection, selection me think of Dumbeldore in his educating ways.
And i also loved the villains. They were real evil doers you can despise and hate to your heart’s content: the Queen, Evangelina, … to mention some.
I actually was sad at the end as I wished to reread the book again and again … something I’ll certainly do because the second book is however sooooo a long way away.
