Unhinged…was pretty great. There were so many emotions for me during this one, I felt like I was on a rollercoaster though, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Howard has some awesome twists and turns I’m never able to see coming. Having to put this book down to do homework felt like I had to rip it off my hands…it was sooo hard to do.
There’s more boy drama and family issues and I do feel for our dear semi-crazy Alyssa. (However, I’m totally team Morpheus if we’re picking sides…which of course we are, right?) There is a race to save Wonderland and a struggle between who Alyssa’s human side and her fae one. All the while there are those plotting against her and those she loves. Plus a pretty big twist I’m gushing to talk to someone about!!!
My only wish is that we could have gone down the rabbit hole in this book, but it was pretty mad despite being in the human realm.
A.G. Howard, are you really gonna make us wait a YEAR after that ending?!? I can’t handle it…Give me more! Nowish please 🙂
Cress. I loved it. So full of action and wonderful people (umm…characters…) that I cannot get enough of the Lunar chronicles series. I totally wish I was on board that epic, dangerous mission to overthrow Queen Levana with them just so I could hang out and chat with Wolf, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Kai, and of course Thorne.
This book introduces some new characters, but retains all of the lovable favorites. Cinder’s powers are growing and she struggles with an internal battle; do her powers define her? Can she still be a good person if she manipulates people with her powers even if it’s not for the same reason Levana does? And can she resist the power’s sometimes darker temptations?
Scarlet’s story was pretty intriguing too, though we don’t see much of her and I’m guessing she will play a larger part in the next book…however I’m not going to say anything because I don’t want to give anything away J
And Cress. Her storyline was wonderful. I loved it and could totally relate to her (and I think a lot of book lovers can to some extent). Being isolated in a satellite she created fantasies about meeting the man of her dreams…which never quite play out the way she anticipates…
All in all it was awesome…and I canNOT wait for Winter to come out!!
P.S. I just pre-ordered a SIGNED copy of Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire from Books of Wonder Shop!!! It was a bit spendy but I feel totally worth it (:
