Hmmm.

I love a good anti-heroine, and this book definitely flies by. But the romance is 1) rushed 2) so-so and 3) pretty predictable, and (yes I understand she's an abused and traumatized teen) Adelina was so clueless. Obviously your sister loves you unconditionally, and always has. Obviously you'll make things worse by trying to do everything by yourself (that's such a big pet peeve of mine, where characters assume that they have to do everything themselves and no one trusts them, and then they do it by themselves and no one trusts them because of it >.
The Dagger Society, as a society, is not very impressive (sloppy, no real plans), so hopefully The Rose Society we see next book will be better.

Also, I can buy sight and smell illusion, and kind of buy illusions that you can touch, but illusions that someone is in pain? That's too far for me. ( )

I liked it. I really did. The world building was awesome and there wasn't a dull moment in the entire book.
...but...
I didn't really connect with the protagonist; I understood her actions, but most of the time I thought she was all over the place. I just didn't get her. And I was not happy with the ending, frankly. ( )

I didn't actually realize this was a villain origin story until about 20 pages from the end. While the writing was only mediocre, looking back it was much better than I originally assumed. I thought this book was about a troubled hero who would struggle but pull through and be good. Instead I got a much darker and more intriguing story. ( )

Ok, so this one started off really good but typical. A girl comes into power and runs away to find a new family of others with powers. The same old story right? No. Turns out this book took on a whole different direction. This was more of a bad guy story than a good guy. In fact, I think the only truly 'good guy' in the story was the main character's sister. Not saying that they were all villains or anything, but we are definitely missing a hero. This honestly leaves me a bit confused on who I'm rooting for can't wait to see who the series plays out from here.

This is a story filled with action, heartbreak, and finding where you belong. It was intriguing, to begin with, and holds your attention throughout. I really enjoyed it and will definitely be continuing the series. ( )

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/02/27/february-2021-rev...

I loved this!!

This book really pushed my love of morally grey characters, and what all I'd forgive them for, to a line, a line which I haven't yet crossed. Some things really bordered on WHAT THE F*CK THIS IS NOT OKAY, and sometimes I would think whether this was really a character I loved enough to still root for.

But, despite all of that, I seriously enjoyed it.

Adelina Amouteru is an extremely relatable character some of the time, but most of the time you read about what she's doing and you go am I sure this is a good character? The answer is no, because Adelina is not a good character. What she is, however, is understandable, while bordering on too much.

I loved the gore this had (gee, that is so weird), especially after The Flame in The Mist, which I'd finished right before this, which also had gore. I think I was just in a really vindictive and bloodthirsty mood that week (because of course I'm writing the review more than a month after finishing it).

The thing is, I've drafted this review in my head a lot of times, but now I can't remember most of it. And that is why I should write reviews on time. *sighs*

I, frankly, did not care as much for the plot as I did for the characters, which seems to be a recurring case with me and Marie Lu's books... the characters are just so well written, with so many sides, and depths, and individual motives; the characters are to die for. And some did. And just, I hated it. No spoilers, though:HOW COULD YOU KILL HIM. HOW COULD YOU. AND THAT TOO BY HER HAND.

How to break your heart and tear it into pieces 101:
-Take your very morally grey character which has questionable motives and very strained relationships at times, and make sure they have a love interest which is like extremely hot and perfect and just, just a good love interest.

-Got them? Now, take your MC, and make her kill him accidentally. And make the scene so that you don't realise what's happened till it's already done (I realised halfway through because there was no way this book was ending on that happy note).

-And then, just to rub it in, make everyone else hate her.


What I did like about the death was that even though it was literally the same concept as what I'd read in The Memory Thief before this, this was a million times better. The same concept, executed so well compared to Etta and her crying.

I loved that Adelina is not a hero. She's not quite a villain, but then she's not a hero either. She's in between, but not exactly? Honestly, she's just concerned for her survival. And at times her sister's. And maybe the love interest and the friendships too, at times, but that went up in flames pretty fast.

While I did love Adelina's moral greyness a lot, at times I would just go 'she doesn't mean that, she must have a good reason and not sadistic ones', but the truth is that she doesn't. Even though she's pretty root-worthy, I would still have moments where I would feel maybe that's a bit far, this much is too much.

I would have this feeling of ...I don't know how to describe it, but it would be like how I wished a bit that maybe the way the darkness got built up and trapped inside her was a little less, and she was more like my normal morally grey characters, with a somewhat less fluctuating moral compass.

But in the end, that is what makes Adelina Adelina. Her darkness is what characterises her, what gives her purpose, and what makes her who she is, how she behaves, and I don't think she would be as interesting of a character as she is without it.

Throughout this book, I would find myself reminded of Vicious a lot, except I think even Vicious had somewhat more morally set characters, and Adelina would vary from moment to moment. Though, to be fair, Victor also varies from moment to moment (It's like that scene from Avengers, was it? Where someone commits the grave mistake of asking Loki how he's feeling, and he answers It varies from moment to moment? That is the scene, right?)(I just googled it, and I was mostly right, but it was from Ragnarok, and it was Banner who asked)

On the whole, an amazing book, whose sequel I will finally be reading later this week, after nearly two months after finishing this. I'm just hoping the dead come to life. Please. I recommend it to anyone who likes morally grey characters, antiheroes and antivillains, though it's sometimes unclear who's who, romances that are slowburn and instalove at the same time,bloodthirsty and vindictive characters through which you can live vicariously, and another amazing book by Marie Lu.
