I have to tell you up front. WOW. How do I even start this? I am hesitant about giving out 5 stars. For this, a book has to blow my mind. And this one has done that and then some. To be honest, I can’t say that I noticed any flaws in this book besides the occasional grammatical mistake, but who isn’t bound to have at least a couple of those?
This story is captivating, fast paced, and it rips you along with it, taking you to a whole new world where you can’t help but love Cinder, hate Adri, and scream for Kai to realize what is really going on after Dr. Erland reveals things about Cinder that she herself did not even know. Full disclosure: I cried a few times. And then there is the Lunar Queen Levana. Oof. How I LOATHE her. Despise her. There were definitely all the feels when I was reading this book. All the feels. And when it ended, I turned the page and said, “Noooo!” It seemed like an abrupt ending because I was so captivated, but upon further thinking, I realized that of course it was the perfect place to end.
The perfect cliffhanger.
I can’t wait to keep reading!
