the author just launches into the story here without as much as a previously on to refresh the audience with the story and cast This works against the story from the very beginning, because unless the reader just finished the first book, it s all a very confusing game of catch up.Adding to that confusion is a weird round of c k name games Kilorn, Cal, Cameron, Corros, Corvium, Ketha I mean, the author s head is obsessed with these sounds and it does the reader no favors in distinguishing these characters and places from one another.To further confuse you, Aveyard spends the first half of the book in action sequences that are also pretty chaotic and don t do much for the story I get that the author is a screenwriter and these scenes probably would look great on film but she needs to learn to write them for readers instead of directors As if sensing that the first half is all action, she overcorrects and spends most of the rest of the book with exposition It doesn t balance out the book it makes it a slog to read as info dump after info dump weight down the already too thin story Seriously, there s maybe only 80 pages of storyline here stretched into 440 pages As others have already

I am very afraid for you Things have been done to you, things no person should suffer You ve seen horrible things, done horrible things, and they will change you I m so afraid for what you could be, if given the wrong chance Enter the world of shades of gray No character will be spared.I FINISHED AND I HAVE MANY, MANY THOUGHTS Let me try to get them down coherently in GIF s find my review of Red Queen HERE 1 First 50% I was mostly bored Not that the writing wasn t amazing, because it was, or because there wasn t action, because there was, but because there was little romance and no Maven and no palace and I just wasn t as entertained as the first book But that all changed the second half when things got GOOD2 A certain someone s death hit me harder than expected I didn t like this person at all in the first book, and now I m thinking I should read one of the novellas to get of this character 3 I really loved Mare in this book.I m sure some reviews will say she was moping and angry but honestly she was REAL Mare struggled to make the right decisions and be who they wanted her to be and she was haunted by the events of book one Again, this series reminds me A LOT of Mockingjay Katniss feels, but for me that s a wonderful thing because I loved Hunger Games and would gladly read scenes like that over and over I got why it was so hard of her to let go of protecting Killorn and move into some sort of friendship with Cal I liked that she didn t know how to interact with the children and people kept looking at her like she was a traitor to both Red and silver I liked the way she kept the notes from Maven and the way she and Cal still mourned the boy they thought they had known.4 The ending OH DEAR LAWD THAT ENDING Now that was an ending His expression is unreadable, but his meaning is clear With one hand, he points at his feet His fingers whiter than I remember.I do as he says.I kneel Read below to understand my thoughts everything is marked as a spoiler FYI view spoiler That ending with Maven I sensed it coming but it was just as epic as I hoped I felt less chemistry between Mare and Cal in this book even though I m teamMaven I still loved Cal in the first and while I could be dead wrong, here is what I think Victoria is setting us up for a Warner esque of Tahereh Mafi s Shatter Me love story between Mare and Maven I know it makes no sense he committed countless unexcusable crimes a la Darkling and Warner but do we know for sure that was him Do we really Did we see him actually hurt anyone in this book No Okay, well technically, he did hurt Mare with that branding thing but Gah I just feel like there is some sort of explanation Maybe somehow it protects her I dunno I just know there is to the story And all of the BAD things that DID happen, Cersei excuse me, Elara, was still alive and well And do we know why she was in the prison Do we really understand what was happening during that prison break out Why was her hair graying and her appearance worn I tell you why because there is to this whole Maven is evil business than meets the eye I am getting very strong Juliette of Shatter Me vibes where Mare is going to start to understand or find out about Maven in the next book and help him struggle to redeem himself by the end of the series I am wishing for a HEA between MM but most likely I think she will help save him from himself and end up with Cal or alone Maven is not pure evil and I don t think he is the villain the way we think he is I think there are other factors at play that will be revealed like how we thought Warner was pure evil in Shatter Me only to find his actions explained away in the sequels No one is born a monster But I wish some people were It would make it easier to hate them, to kill them, to forget their dead faces Even Maven I m sorry but quotes like that hint at my suspicions so well SHADES OF GRAY, PEOPLE, SHADES OF GRAY.Now maybe you can think this is just wishful thinking Your reaction to my prediction is probably this And you can throw a hundred things Maven did in my face and tell me I can t explain all of that away.There are people who read Shatter Me who refused to forgive Warner I realize rooting for Maven is crazy to a rational eye, but in books I tend to love and sympathize with the villain and I m sorry but reading that ending where Mare has given herself over to Maven in exchange for everyone s freedom I just know there is so much potential there.Maybe I m wrong and he really is a psychopath But I got chills with that ending and it was because of what we might see in the next book I m sorry but I m just not getting an epic love story for Cal Mare, I think she is going to fall for Maven try to save him from himself in the next two books I could be dead wrong and I realize I sound crazy, but I m telling you, I think there is to Maven than the villain Victoria has been leading us to believe She s a master at twists and I am TELLING YOU that I think Maven is her trump card I think Maven is end game for this series and I do not think he is pure evil even though we ve only been offered evidence of the contrary I m calling it and if I m wrong, well maybe I am, but my author instincts are telling me there is than black and white, evil and good This series is going to be about SHADES OF GRAY.Final notes Why oh why did I have to wait a whole book to get two scenes with Maven I know why Because Victoria is an evil genius and knows she is torturing us but it s exactly what we need to get amped up for the third book there s four planned now, right Glass Sword did have second book syndrome it was building to future events and showing us character development and it was absolutely getting us to see how this world truly functioned, but it was truly necessary for the stage Victoria is planning to set We all saw what she was capable in Red Queen, and I have faith the next two books will be a non stop rollercoaster of madness now that she has given us all the building blocks and endeared us to all of the characters I see what you did there so that she can let blood fly in the next Did I love this book than Red Queen No But I think Victoria did an excellent job preparing us for what s to come and building the world none of us really got to see in the first book hide spoiler And I am revealed for exactly what I am a particularly stupid fish, moving from hook to hook, never learning my lesson This is a pretty good summary of the whole book.I know some people will not like that I tried Glass Sword after being really disappointed with Red Queen, but I ve had a lot of luck with sequels lately My dislike for first books like Cinder and The Winner s Curse turned into love for the later books in the series So I thought I d give Aveyard a second chance.No disrespect intended, but I really do struggle to understand the popularity of this series Nothing about it is particularly good or compelling YA fantasy is made up of lots of fluff, but even the lightest of romantic fantasies generally offer some excitement, some pull, even if the world building is scarce and it is heavily diluted by romance.This sequel offers nothing like that The prose is bland and the plot contains a lot of meandering between places and constant repetition Mare s narrative is tiresome and dull, going over the same thoughts about Cal, Maven and her own specialness Only the last few chapters contain any real action or story development the rest of the book shows the characters going from place to place in search of those with special abilities who can help their mission.The author is too lazy to craft thought provoking scenes and characters, only ever writing something or someone when it furthers Mare s mission Everything feels orchestrated around the super special Mare, none of the characters have their own identity or purpose, which makes it not only boring, but also turns every character into a chess piece, a stereotype, and a trope Glass Sword introduces many new characters and not a single one of them is memorable.And Mare alone cannot carry this story If, perhaps, her character had been so strong and interesting that it didn t really matter about the one dimensional other characters, then maybe this book wouldn t have been terrible But Mare is neither a likable character, nor an anti heroine that demands your sympathy anyway She s an immature, often stupid, mess.Mare blends in with a sea of forgettable fantasy heroines Even her flaws are not portrayed as such her first person narrative so self obsessed She s arrogant always concerned with her own power and mission She s selfish often forgetting her family even exist and rarely expressing emotion befitting the situation If you enjoy reading about super special heroines, stick with Throne of Glass If you d rather read about a fascinating and morally questionable anti heroine, then check out The Young Elites.For everything you could possibly be looking for, I can suggest a better book series than this one Unless you are actively seeking poor writing and boredom.The late dose of action couldn t save the book, nor could the ending that is cliffhanger than resolution It is a boring, derivative fantasy that only stands out from the crowded genre when it sits dazzling prettily on a bookshelf.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store
