This novel is okay. It is not the greatest nor is it the worst. I have very high standards for my novels is all. I will list them out and then, compare the book to it. I promise to be brutally honest with my opinion, but it should not be taken as fact. Any reader should read it for themselves, before they decide if this book has any merit or not. Do not judge this book baised solely on my opinion. If you do, you might miss out on a great read. You never know. It could happen.
1. Strong Main Character/ Female Heroine: This book does have a female heroine, so I am very happy about that. What disappoints me is that she is not a strong lead. She is forever having fainting spells and relying on other people to keep her safe. She had a couple of strong moments, while being scared inside, but other than that, she was very weak. 1 out of 5 stars
2. Strong Minor Characters: Oddly enough, I found the minor characters or supporting characters to be far more demensional and likeable than the main female role. They were dynamic and I either loved or hated them or both in a good way. The emotions melted out of these characters allowing you to get to kow them far more than the main character. Too bad it cannot be all about the minor characters. 5 ou of 5 stars
3. The Settling: It is out in the middle of nowhere, where murder sprees can take place without the rest of the world knowing. Believble: no. Exciting and interesting: Yes. 4 out of 5 stars
4. The Plot: It is interesting to start out with, but th emale role brings it down a lot of notches. The reader never finds out what happened to her father and sister and many more questions go unanswered. I enjoy the plot about the wolfs, hybrids, and jagers, but the weak main character takes away from that aspect of excitement. 1 out of 5 stars
I will definitly read from the guy's point of view in the next book, because I find him more interesting than this girl. Hopefully, the author has developed him more in his book than he has with the girl in Broken.
