Marie34801 | 1 comments With all the fuss made about this book I was a little disapointed... Not satisfied by the end and it had a taste of "already read somewhere ". Also I don't see how this can be a stand alone ...
however the world itself was interesting.

Favorite character : Cook

Kimberly Vanderbloom (kvanderbloom) | 38 comments My least favorite character wad Marcus and my favorite character was Elias


message 4: by Erin (new)

Erin H I absolutely love this book, it had some dark parts to it and I like the overall world these characters live in. My favorite character was Elias. I was torn with the ending, I loved it but it didn't feel finished to me, I'm hoping that it will turn into a series because I definitely need more!

Emilia (doctorherondale) | 419 comments Is it a stand alone book?

BriAnna Smith Cooper | 74 comments I just got to part two. Not sure how I feel about it yet. I've liked the story line so far and I think it'll be better now with their stories connecting.

BriAnna Smith Cooper | 74 comments And has anyone else had a problem picturing the mask? At first I pictured it covering their whole face except eyes but they have to eat with it on. It's a little confusing. It may have been explained and I was half asleep when I read it. I just can't imagine it really..

I can't imagine it at all other than the part where (view spoiler). I might have read it wrong, but I don't think I did...


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 27 comments I enjoyed the Second part of the book more, but at the end I felt like the story was incomplete, so many unanswered questions.I hope it gets picked up for another book.

Ohh, yeah, that makes sense. They mentioned a lot of times when his neck would bleed. I wish there was just a picture or something we could go by.

Petuli | 9 comments This cannot possibly be a stand alone, right?? But I enjoyed it very much :)


message 13: by BriAnna (new)

BriAnna Smith Cooper | 74 comments I feel like sometimes it was slow and then it would be action packed. It's going to be a hard book to read because some of it was ok and some of it was really good! I hope they come out with a second book because there are so many unanswered questions.


message 14: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Stone (jackie-o-lantern) This book was a lot darker than most YA. I really liked that about it.


message 15: by BriAnna (new)

BriAnna Smith Cooper | 74 comments I agree, I was saw that the suggested age was 14 and up. I thought it was a little dark for that age.


message 16: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie | 2 comments needs a sequel - at least. maybe more than 1. and maybe other characters POV? At least for the time being since know Elias/Laia are traveling together, it opens up maybe for other characters to share their views a tad more perhaps


message 17: by Shelleen (new)

Shelleen Toland I loved this book and am hoping that the publisher picks up this author for a 2nd book. I really hated Marcus but not as much as the Commandor. I really liked Elias/Laia.

BriAnna Smith Cooper | 74 comments I hope they make it into a trilogy

Thank goodness! That will hopefully stop people from being all, "That ending, 'doe!"

That's great news. I can't wait to read more. Thanks for the info
