It took me a while to get into the book because not a lot was going on but the end is so fast paced that I burned through it. There were a lot of twists and while I was able to guess most of them, I stayed entertained. I also thought the magic with the use of memories and how that played out with the story was cool. That being said, I wish that the magic and world had been better ...more
This book took me a while to get through (as per usual with me and fantasy) and I did find it to be a little too lengthy (again, probably just because as much as I love the genre, I find fantasy hard work). However, the story intrigued me from the get go and honestly, after ...more

Rather, Renata, the protagonist, spoke like she took it for granted that the reader was able to understand certain references. And I was like: "Wait, what?". That's why ...more
Incendiary is set in a fantasy world inspired by Inquisition-era Spain. The concept of having a character who can steal memories intrigued me. But while the world and concept were interesting, this book was in some ways disappointing.
The opening few chapters grabbed my attention, but there was a lot of new information for the reader, some of which could have been explained ...more
Who IS Renata Convida? That seems to be the prominent question Incendiary aims to solve. She was raised to steal memories and turn people into Hollows, empty shells of themselves. And then she spent her adolescent years trying to redeem herself and negate all the pain and destruction she caused. She soon starts to realize that its difficult to erase the past for herself, even if she can erase it for others, being a Robarí, one of ...more
