And we even out the main part of this series with an even three stars.
I will say that when it comes to young adult romance, Kiera Cass has got it down. Her books do not have a lot of action, which in my case is why the stars are a little lower, but her story telling and her romantic side of the story telling, she’s got it going on.
But alas, that isn’t enough for me.
It’s actually too much for me.
Romance should never, in my opinion, be the focus of a book. This whole thing was flipped for me. The whole war between the violent group of people who hated the caste system and the none violent people who hated the caste system should have had a lot more focus on it in my opinion. It was a different dynamic than the norm. You didn’t just have those who loved and those who hated, you had those who loved those who hated violently and those who hated proactively. I just thought that could have been really interesting to see more of.
The ending is pretty predictable, but it doesn’t make it any less enjoyable after reading about this contest for three books. Even with the unnecessary love triangle, I am happy with the end. I would recommend this book for people who LIVE for romance. It is such a romance book, and I would have enjoyed it more if that was my cup of tea.
