Kelly (Diva Booknerd) I just did the same. It felt like a heroes verses villains pantomime.

Bee *puts the book on hold and starts reading another one*

C Sarah Strafford Every review I’ve read for this book says pretty much the same thing! And I’ve been really wanting to try some of Meyer’s book, but I️’m not sure where to start (and I’m not in the mood for a long series and I️ really don’t do Alice in Wonderland books). Maybe I️ can find some short stories by her I️ guess? I️ mean, super hero stories are over done but there’s still tons of super hero comics published every year. Sounds like she was just really lazy with the plot. If you haven’t read it and want a good superhero book , Vicious by Victoria Schwab is an amazing one 👍

Theresa Ain't nobody got time for 600 pages of "meh". Or at least I don't, so thank you for this review and saving my time for another, better book

meiramcb Ahh I've read a lot of mix reviews about this book but I'll still going to read this because ~Marissa Meyer trash~ anyways... I am kind of disappointed when Gatlon School for Vigilante was cut off and moved aside for this plot because I think if she didn't set aside it, maybe that will work alright. Let's cry together Cait for the lost School for Vigilantes 😭😭

Lena Are there a lot of action scenes in this book? I always need to keep myself from just skipping those! So if there are too much I probably won't read this xD
Great review!

Tanya When it's next on my list to read and now you're making me second guess. AHHHHHH. 600+ pages of meh? I gotta rethink this

Cris This and Heartless both disappointed me so 😞

message 11: by Linda (new)

Linda Thanks for the review, this book is dropping levels on my TBR.

Alice This book does suck.

Alice Omg this book is totally a suckier version of steelheart and I hated steelheart because of david.

Trekkie So glad I'm not the only one who thought about Steelheart a lot while reading this 😂

message 15: by Ellyn (new) - added it

Ellyn Seriously so happy to see other people pointing out that this is so similar to Steelheart. I could NOT get past how closely aligned they were while reading.

The Reading Writing Puppet Totally agree with you 😊

Lydia E Winters I just finished reading this and was thinking about how funny it was that you gave the book a negative review and that made me decide to read it? 😂 Negative reviews really can be more informative than five star praises.
