It's complicated.

I... was so excited for this book! Seriously, so excited!

However, it was wayyyy different than I actually expected. WAY DIFFERENT.

I kind of expected something like Legend, where it seems like of like a dystopian futuristic world with tons of action.

This... did not have action (until the last... 10%).

Sadly, this was not what I expected. I expected so much action and a stunning science fiction dystopian. However, 27 Hours wasn't any of those things.

I probably would have enjoyed this more if I expected something different?

(But I still love the cover.)

The romance was kind of confusing and it didn't seem that realistic. They hardly had any problems during their relationship. However, I enjoyed that there were friendships in this book! I LOVE FRIENDSHIPS YES.

But, uh... I had no idea what was happening 70% of the time? I read really quickly, but this writing style didn't work that well for me, sadly.

There were lots of one-liners, though! I enjoyed most of them~


This seems so much like a science fiction- but it didn't really feel like one. It seemed more like a modern type book- I honestly can't think of any futuristic differences between this world and our world. (Except for the setting.)

I LOVED SOME OF THE SNARK THOUGH. Trick (why isn't he even included in the blurb??) is so funny and I LOVED HIM. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

But I really did enjoy reading about how these characters realized that a lot of what they had been taught was WRONG and PROPAGANDA. And that everything is not what it seems like it is.

I wish this book went more into the magical system, tbh! NYX AND JUDE'S POWERS ARE SO COOL OKAY. SO COOL.
