The Written Review
“Crooked smiles for crooked hearts.”It came as no surprise when Renata was stolen. She may have been just a child but she was a Robari.
“Sometimes I wonder if a person can have so much regret they'll drown in it.”At first, she thought she was helping the King, which was a good thing (of course) but as she grew older, the true horror of what she had done dawned on her.
“They're afraid. Fear makes people do things they normally wouldn't. Like share a drink with someone they despise.”But when the commander of her unit (and her friend) Dez is captured by the royal family, Renata knows she must once again make a choice - herself or Dez. Her life or thousands.
“...loosely based on the Spain of the 15th century, reimagining the Inquisition...”
Incendiary was an action-packed fantasy set in a world inspired by 15th century Spain, reimagining the Inquisition. While it had many of the tropes that are common in YA fantasy such as a main character with rare/ special powers it didn't feel boring or unoriginal to me and managed to make those common tropes exciting.
“this prince whose friendship made the palace a little less lonely for a moria girl. the prince whom i’ve spent half my life hating.”
