by Marie Rutkoski

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 EPIC Stars

Before I start I just wanna ask Marie Rutkoski : Why are you so cruel ? Why ?

YOU, MARIE RUTKOSKI, ARE A PHENOMENAL STORY TELLER, I LOVED THIS BOOK AND THE REST OF THE SERIES, IT’S JUST THAT ENDING WAS TOO MUCH FOR MY HEART TO BARE, ESPECIALLY FOR ANOTHER WHOLE YEAR… The book is Really EPIC (A.W.E.S.O.M.E.)!
The feels this book had got me thru though….ugh how do I even describe that ?

“Sometimes you think you want something,” Arin told him, “when what you need is to let it go.”

A whirlwind of angst, heartbreak, heartache, doubt, and self-sacrifice to the FULLEST extent, I could barely breathe through most of this story. It was harsh. It was evil. There wasn’t a moment where I wasn’t sitting on the edge of my bed.. And Holy Hell did I LOVED IT !

From my point of view,the book was more about the sacrifices we make for love. It still had the forbidden love elements, but a lot of the story was centered around Kestrel’s heartbreak. It was a bit hard to try to differentiate my emotions from Kestrel’s. I think that was my biggest struggle with this story-our emotions meshed together a little too well.

I knew that,there was never going to be a a good end to this story. Kestrel knew that,too.But Arin…Arin didn’t, but boy did he begin to see it that way. The King was an evil, conniving son of a bitch, and he was the main reason I couldn’t breathe through this story. He watched Kestrel’s every move. He watched Arin’s every move. He watched his son’s every move…and when Kestrel’s father came back into the story, it only added an extra layer of oh shit.

Lies. Lies lies lies and another handful of lies. Secrets and secrets and misunderstandings and assumptions and lots of heartbreak. Hope….bleak hope. And then that door closes on you, too. I still think book one was way more addicting for me.

THIS BOOK IS WAY TOOO GOOD TO MISS IT !

About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at cristinacryss0@gmail.com
