by Pierce Brown
Having fallen completely in love with the first book in this series (red rising) I was so excited to start this book. It began quite nicely, but unfortunately I found that it soon started to drag a bit. There were so many new words and names and places that my mind felt like it was about to explode. There was Rip Wings and people of all colors and Obsidians and whatnot and they blasted each other from space and…I don’t know. It just got too much for me and it made me unable to keep track of the plot and the progress. Eventually I had to put the book down and step away cause it just didn’t work for me. And I was so excited about it and I was so disappointed and I really really wanted to love it. And Sevro, where did the attitude go? I want him back.
However, with this ending, Pierce Brown sure made sure I would pick up the third novel in this series too, so way to go there, (I still hate the ending though).
