I didn't really like this book but no matter, it has served its purpose which was introducing me to Amari so thanks for that I guess.

It wasn't a terrible book, I am just a horrible hollow kind of indifferent towards it. My heart was itching for an experience that I just didn't get.

Trisha  (The Tea Reader) I saw this book at the store not long after it came out, sadly I was unable to but it at the time, my bank account wouldn't allow it, I'm hoping to get it soon because it sounds so interesting.

honestly if zél & amari were a thing, this would have easily been a four stars, it's the romance that ruined it for me personally :/

yeah. i'm about halfway through and have stopped for a bit. it's coming across as a little too chaotic for me. like over here we have THIS happening but oh wait there is THIS happening too but DON'T FORGET ABOUT THIS... i'll def read the next book in the series but only because i'm waiting for zél and amari to get together. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

exactly how I felt tbh!! I really wanted to like it but oh well :/


Nenia ⭐ Literary Garbage Can ⭐ Campbell I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who wasn't blown away with this. Your review makes me feel better about my opinion haha :')


Swati So good to see someone else giving 2 stars for this book!!


message 19: by Hiba (new) - rated it 3 stars

Hiba Oh yess Amari was the most amazing thing about this book.


message 20: by Zoë (new) - rated it 2 stars

Zoë Ana SAME


Maria Writes Yes! Amari was my absolute favourite part of the Book


Natalia The only thing that literallyed anyonned me though being honest, is the fact, that this book screamed elements from the hunger games lol.
Other than that I actually was amused.


Natalia Zellie felt like katniss for the most part or trish diveregent is literally what i saw.


Maria Norso I've written this before but I found it predictable.. Sorry but that's honest. It was well written. Too polished though..


Donna (the book hoarder) I'm liking it so far, though Zelie is getting on my nerves making dumb decisions that only workout thanks to dumb luck. I'm kind of indifferent towards Amari so far though, hope that changes!


Grace How did you not get an experience? This entire book was a roller coaster full of drama, tears, love and hearbreak. It was the most experience I've ever gotten out of a book.


Rachel Didn't care for this book either, unfortunately.


Sofie Novak Amari was hands down the best character in the series. The only one with a level head and an unwavering goal.


Leslie Hitchcock I couldn’t emotionally connect with any of them. Also found the duel romance eye-rolling. I don’t think I will continue the series. I read a few months ago and already forgot what happened


Leighellen Actually super thankful to see your low review on this. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with me that it wasn't 5 stars?!!? The romance I could have either done without or just let them get it on and get over it already. And Amari's character way out shadowed Zelie so I hope the 2nd book is more about her. Cuz she seems like a total BA!


Nicole Sulak I don’t know if it is because I haven’t read the hunger games in YEARS but I didn’t get a hunger games vibe. I guess you could say that boat scene where they had to fight the other maji people could be “hunger gameish” but I didn’t feel like this book was a rip off from any other series. I thought the relationship was a tad bit fast for me but the writing, suspense, character development, and plot were more than enough to make up for that.

Yuliya Oh no! So it's not the new harry potter? 😭


Morgan honestly like... amari and zélie were clearly meant to be in lesbians and we were denied that beautiful relationship
