Trigger warnings: Fire, murder and attempted murder, culture erasure, separation from parents, military violence and war themes

8/10, I haven't read a book from Jennifer A. Nielsen in a while and I enjoyed her other book called the Scourge but wow this blew me away with the sheer brilliance and creativity of this; almost everything was executed perfectly, I don't even know where to even begin. It starts with the main character Audra Zikaris living with her parents in her house when suddenly the Russians having already banned the Lithuanian language came to burn her house down and take away her parents leaving her all alone; she was forced to go off into the forest until she meets a new person named Lukas who turns out be a pretty major character and will come into play soon enough. Audra discovers an underground book resistance and starts smuggling books herself after a while but she still misses her parents who could still be out there in somewhere like Siberia and she thinks about that. In the end, the Russians arrived to try and stop the book resistance and burn some villages which was super entertaining and I liked the epilogue as well where the press ban was lifted.… (lisätietoja)

Trigger warnings: Pandemic

7/10, I've been wanting to read this for a while and after reading a quite terribly written YA dystopia I was hoping that this would be better than that and I'm glad that I read this because it was just so much better than the last book in every single way, by the way this was the first book I've read from this author and I've enjoyed one of her other works since, where do I even begin. It starts off quite interestingly with the main character Ani Mells or Ani for short and she lives her normal life in a fictional country whose name I forgot and it was unique that the people there were called grubs by others from a neighbouring country so they called them pinchworms. Anyways the government raided Ani's house to test her for the Scourge and she was positive so she was sent to Attic Island along with some other people who tested positive and this struck me as quite familiar as it was similar to the experiences of the COVID pandemic, maybe it's just me. It seemed that Ani would live the rest of her short and painful life involving taking antidotes amongst other things before she dies of the Scourge but this isn't the full picture. Ani alongside Weevil predictably discovers that the government lied about the Scourge but what for, I don't quite understand why however in the end there was an action packed rebellion against them and that ended it on a high note.… (lisätietoja)

I loved this book. There was one part of the story I might not have bought if it hadn't been a YA. Still I really dug the story and look forward to the next one.

This book drove me a little crazy. The first book was so good but this one fell short. It was all over the place. The plot didn't always make sense. My suspension of disbelief was pushed to the limits. Plus, the main character drove me a tiny bit crazy. I still mostly enjoyed it but can't help but be disappointed that it was nowhere near as good as the first one.
