I swear I saw like everything coming (view spoiler) and yet every time something happened I was jumping up and down screaming anyway because even though I thought I suspected there were so many things pointing in different directions I got caught up in maybe this-or maybe she wants me to think this- or maybe she thinks that she wants me to think this but it's actually this-triangle. EPIC! I just loved this book so freaking much. It was YA Game of Thrones and it was BEAUTIFUL.

Priscila I can't wait to get my hands on this!


Aj the Ravenous Reader Okay, I'm gonna have to stop reading your comments, Melissa and Rachel. I have a great fear of spoilers. Lol. Enjoy fangirling, you guys! <3

OMG. READ IT!!! It's medieval-dystopia-fantasy. Did you ever read The Queen of the Tearling? It's like that type of setting, future but medieval monarchy & mostly materials/etc. I didn't love that book at all, but this... OMG. So good:) I definitely recommend reading it!!! Thanks Lola:)

Esthela Gómez It's like Red Rising? I LOVE RS but I don't want to be comparing the two.

I haven't read that one yet:( But I have a reviewer on my feed who got angry saying they felt like it was a copy of that. But to each his own, and I absolutely adored this book!


Melissa (Ever So Mela) "Graceling Meets Selection"

I hate when they do that. Like trying to remake the same types of book. And personally I got offended with this specific one. I haven't read the Selection but I've read some reviews and boy are they wrong. This is on a whole other playing field.


message 16: by AJ (new)

AJ X MEN?!?!??! You had me at X MEN. I should read this now.


message 17: by Jack (new)

Jack Reynolds This gives me slight hope that it will be really good. I'm a bit worried that it might turn out to be another one of those stereo-typical dystopian/fantasy novels, but from the looks of it, it might be different.


message 18: by Melissa (Ever So Mela) (last edited Feb 12, 2015 08:32AM) (new)

Melissa (Ever So Mela) This book is great people. Trust me, throw all reservations to the wind and go read RED QUEEN!!


message 19: by Arika (new)

Arika Ahhh I need to get a copy of this!!! By the sounds of it everyone thinks it's amazing!!!


message 20: by Rachel (new)

Rachel E. Carter Melissa is right guys, it's a bit stereotypical, it does have clichés, BUT IT'S STILL SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!


message 21: by Rachel (new)

Rachel E. Carter P.S. I DO NOT WASTE HOURS OF MY LIFE FOR WRITING THE BEST REVIEW OF MY LIFE FOR A LACKLUSTER BOOK. JUST SAYIN' :D

Hey if she wants to hire me to market it I would so do that. I promote books & authors I love for free & this is easily my new favorite since Hunger Games... Shatter Me was sooo close (and I love Warner more than Maven still) but I like the plot of this series better. So yea Victoria Aveyard is my new favorite & I will be that crazy obsessed fangirl at midnight. I remember hearing about her book deal when I was querying agents and I was so jealous so I looked her stats up and all I have to say is her deal and success is well-deserved. I get how some people might not be a fan for their own reasons but for me this was literally my dream book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awwww:) Thank you Britt!!!!!!!!!! I will be waiting to see what you think, I have a feeling you are going to love it when you finally get to it <3


Melissa (Ever So Mela) Oh Yeah. This hands down my favorite epic fantasy I have read to date and it will take a freaking miracle for some book to knock it down.

I actually saw her blog. She had said that like 3 of 4 days after she sold the book she got a call to make it into a movie so yeah, I'm expecting great thing from her. I can't believe she's younger than me lol


message 34: by Lucy (new)

I know:( I cried a little. When I was 22 I was just taking college courses, not even thinking about writing as a career! I know she's a bit older now (24? 25?) and it makes me cry. She's so talented. I am SO in agreement with you!!!

Awww, really? That makes me so happy. Well her book is amazing so I am so happy I helped convince you to put it on your TBR list Victoria <3

That is the best thing you could say to me, Allison <3 I am so happy I made you want to read this book and you'll have to let me know what you think! *fingers crossed* you enjoy it even half as much as me!


message 47: by Arfina (new)

Arfina If I hadn't already read this book, YOU WOULD HAVE SOLD IT TO ME right here, right now.
YOUR REVIEW SPEAKS TRUTH. Now I don't feel so guilty for shipping Maven and Mare so hard! Ahh, this book is so perfect.

Omygosh thank you Arfina!!! I am so glad not be alone on the Mare/Maven ship, I just.. I loved their scenes so much, you know they had great chemistry. Did you see this http://instagram.com/p/zA1Y0lmzLb/?mo... yet? I'm still up in the air whether Victoria is enjoying breaking our hearts or if she is also secretly pro-Maven and will give us what we want later on:))) And this book... words can't express how many feels I have. I already want to reread it lol. That is the true test of a great book.

Right?! Mare and Mavey had the best chemistry, they had such genuine nice scenes, probably why it hurts the most! Does it feel like the book kind of left us feeling like there was no going back? Omg she replied to you Rachel!! In a way Victoria kind of confirmed that this ship won't be sinking! I don't feel like touching another book so soon yet, I feel like rereading it again as well haha.


message 50: by Pearl (new)
