Ahahahaha jennymort :') You can laugh at my suffering but just YOU wait until you read this ;P


♔ Dark Lordette Jennymort ♔ When that will happen, no one knows. I've had this series on my shelf for a longgggggg while. *sigh*

Bianca St. This happens to me all the time now when I read YA! It didn't use to bother me when I was the characters' age but now that I'm 20, reading about 14-17 yo characters who fight and travel to who knows where is sometimes so unrealistic and irksome...


message 5: by Celeste (new)

Celeste I haven't read this particular book, but I completely agree with the sentiment. Make your MCs older, people! ;)


Cindy ✩☽ Savage Queen ♔ If one day I ever write a book all my characters will be at least 18 so they can act and be judged as adults ;)

^^ YESSS

I'm 20 as well *high five* I feel youu because it was unrealistic and hard to believe that 15 year olds are capable of this type of shit??? Authors, come onnnnn, don't do this to us like age is everything LOL !!

Well, as long as their not 16 and below then sign me upppp ;p


message 11: by Cesar (new)

Cesar Completely agree with you on the age thing. Definitely would've prefered if they were at least 17. Hell, maybe 18.


message 12: by Sana (new)

Sana "Pedophile" and "fetus" LOLOL I'm crying. I honestly love your reviews tweebsie. <3


message 13: by Kaisu (new)

Kaisu Lol same I was extremely upset by the fact that the characters were so young.


message 14: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Sooo true! I mean you see 15 yo book characters.. and 15 yo real people... no they can never be the same. And sorry to break you but it's not :p but i really enjoyed this trilogy overall, the last book was the best but still hard to believe they were able to do so much while being so young


message 15: by bridget (new)

bridget omg this is me all the time with YA books. in my head i just ignore their given age and make them like 18, 19, 20 y/o so my 21 year old brain doesn't feel as old :-)

Warning taken under advisement. I will replace 15 in my head with 18. Haha.


Joanna (joreadsalot) I hear ya. I find myself doing this more often in order to get through YA because if I don't the characters start to feel fake.


Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~ INFANTS. INFANTS I SAY.

YES I agree with you like I'm hoping I can over look their ages and continue on despite the fact I could literally adopt these characters ;p

^^ YES TO EVERYTHING

Anything younger than 15 is a big no no. YA books need to stop this weird ages like what authors have against 18, 19, or 20???

Anything but 15 would work perfectly for you ;) GOOD LUCK THOUGH !!

Mary Moo, I'm just going to take this and make it my review because YES YOU SUMMED UP EVERYTHING !!!


message 28: by ambsreads (new)

ambsreads I agree with everything! Though, I just came across someone using your review and slamming you on twitter so I kind of wanted to bring it to your attention - https://twitter.com/bookishwithtea/st.... They didn't include your name but I immediately recognised your review!


message 29: by Talía (new)

Talía I suffer through the same issue with books, like I can´t really read book with young characters because I´ll be thinking about it (or changing their age so I can read in peace lol). Great review btw!

I know rightttt !! And thank you Talia :)


message 32: by Reynita (new)

Reynita Maharani ★ The Night Reader ★ I read it two years ago and I don't even remember the main characters age but if I read it again, I'm sure I would be just like you. I can't read YA books with young main characters. 16 years old is ... quite fine with me but 17 years old would be great.


message 33: by Angie (new)

Angie Ahahaha I SO RELATE TO YOUR EXAMPLES. I love this series, Marie writes the characters so well and their development is great! But I do agree with you on the age thing-my sister is 15 and so whenever it hit me that these characters in the first book are 15 too it just seemed a bit less realistic!

I did bring this up with a friend who put it into perspective-he said that they were in a futuristic society so perhaps at this point and state of their world it didn't matter to them? Like June and Day's experiences may have caused them to grow up a bit too fast in a way. I mean this made sense to me, but I still cringed a bit


message 34: by L.C. (new)

L.C. Perry I haven't read this yet, but now I feel hesitant lol. I have a 15 year old sister too! And I feel after reading it I will feel EXACTLY the way you do! Thank you for the glimpse in my future reaction <3
