Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, this young adult fantasy follows the forbidden romance between a powerful prince and an ordinary girl as they try to survive their kingdom's grueling laws pitting them against each other.
She is the very thing he's spent his whole life hunting.
He is the very thing she's spent her whole life pretending to be.

Only the extraordinary belong in the kingdom of Ilyathe exceptional, the empowered, the Elites. The powers these Elites have possessed for decades were graciously gifted to them by the Plague, though not all were fortunate enough to both survive the sickness and reap the reward. Those born Ordinary are just thatordinary. And when the king decreed that all Ordinaries be banished to preserve his Elite society, lacking an ability suddenly became a crimemaking Paedyn Gray a felon by fate and a thief by necessity.

If the Trials and the opponents within them don't kill her, the prince she's fighting feelings for certainly will if he discovers what she is...completely Ordinary.

So this was a very obvious mix of the Hunger Games and the Throne of Glass with few original ideas, although even those might have been taken from somewhere else. Maybe I have just not read the inspiration yet.

The tournament was uninspired, the trials boring, and I never really felt that our MC was in actual danger. It went so far in taking inspiration from Hunger Games that even in a historical setting we have magical recording and replaying of the trials. Not to mention that besides getting our characters together, what was the actual point of the tournament?

The setting and lore are again very lackluster. Just a bare minimum necessary for the story. Deadly desert right next to the city? The kingdom is so well described that I only know there is a palace and an alley where the poor people live and that those two places are somewhat far away from each other? The magic system was somewhat original, though. I just wish there was a bit more done with it.

The romance line was ok I suppose. It didn't make me feel much, but it also didn't make me annoyed much.

I was actually thinking of DNFing this a few times, especially every time something stupid happened.

The ending did make the book slightly more interesting to me. I didn't expect it would go that way. I might even be slightly interested in the sequel. ( )

This book was one where I thought about it constantly when I wasn’t reading it! I really enjoyed it, I liked that it kind of gave hunger games/Harry Potter vibes. I want a Kai… ( )

Trigger warnings: Blood depiction, physical injury, assault and murder of a person, near-death experience

First, whoa. The next book is next year? It better be as good as the first. With that out of the way, the library I got this from purchased it a few months back, and afterwards, I finally got my hands on it. When I finished it, I thought it was impressive for a debut author, because it's rare for authors to impress me on the first try. This author did. This novel feels like Red Queen and even Graceling, and it's clear that some elements felt like The Hunger Games (which didn't matter or dampen my enjoyment anyway.) It starts with the main character Paedyn Gray (or Paedyn for short), but here's the catch: she's Ordinary, ever since the Plague hit which gifted some (now called the Elite) with powers, while killing others. When I think about it it's strange and it's not clear where the Plague first started; maybe the second instalment can explain. Only after a few pages, Paedyn is called to participate in the 6th trials while forming an attraction with Prince Kai (Are they meant for each other? It's not clear, but they got along well.) The second half spoke for itself (it's so good I have no words to describe it.) Other than the fact that Paedyn won the trials and started a revolution. And a cliffhanger. I'm speechless. ( )

It is reminiscent of Hunger Games. I like the two main characters: the girl from the slums and the prince who kills for the king. They are attracted to each other without immediately having sex, which, in fact, they don’t in this book.

I want to continue reading this series. ( )

Although it seemed to heavily draw inspiration from the Hunger Games & Harry Potter’s Triwizard Tournament, I couldn’t help but thoroughly enjoy this read. Paedyn & Kai are intoxicating. I cannot wait until the sequel comes out in July. ( )
