I loved the world that this book is set in, and I think the main character is very likeable. Thalia is strong willed and will always stand up for herself which are qualities I admire, especially in female characters.

However, I don't think the story is very well written. It often feels clumsy and events seemed to happen at random without explanation. Thalia seems to have too much knowledge about the world for someone who has no memory of life before prison. At the beginning we are thrust into a world and I found the first few chapters very confusing as many terms weren't really explained until later. It would have been better for the reader to learn alongside Thalia a bit better rather than assuming knowledge.

i was disappointed that not much is explained about the Septori apart from them doing something to Thalia and then wanting to kill her repeatedly. I would have liked to have a little more revealed about exactly what they were trying to achieve. I liked that Thalia's powers develop gradually throughout, but a bit more explanation of how she got them and how they work would have been good.

I enjoyed the twist at the end and that actually made me want to possibly read a sequel to find out what Thalia's home is like. ( )

I tried. I truly did. When trusted friends recommend me books, I try, I do. (althoguh perhaps I should rethink that policy for friends who have different taste in books than I)

But, it just, ugh...

Basic conversation I had with my friend:
Me: there should have be more commas.
My friend: I'll be the first to agree she's not the best at grammar, but it's a good story.
Me: If you say so...
My friend: Where are you?
Me: I'm at the part where she's talking to the Council of Adepts and... nothing else is going on.
My friend: Give it a couple more chapters. It gets better.
Me: Allright...

one day and two chapters later, I'm still bored, and I say it: "I can't do it. I just can't do it."

But I promised my friend I would try--so I did the one. last. thing
that has been known to make me excited about books that I don't like.
I read the last chapter.

The last chapter was intriguing. Not enough to make me want to read all the chapters in between chapters 8 and last chapter, but interesting enough to make me want to read the next one.
(Which totally doesn't make sense.)
I don't see any sort of plot that connects where I left off in Chapter 8 to the last chapter.

Thalia falls in love with Joss.
I already knew that.
Magic happens.
When doesn't it?
We meet some dude named Bearen.
How many chapters will that honestly take? One? Possibly two?

But-- some things that I assume are triggers for book 2 happened in the last chapter.

Thalia is found by her family and they start heading 'home'.
Some other chick is a bitch to Thalia clearing pissing all over Joss, 'He's Mine' style.
Some dude called Fox Fur attacks said bitchy girl. Thalia hypothesized two possible reasons for it, but to me, it seemed like he was defending her honor, or something like that. Perhaps Fox Fur is an old boyfriend from Thalia's other life?

While all these things are INTRIGUING however, they a) aren't enough, and b) even if they were, I'd probably need to read the middle bit of this one. And I reeeaaaallllllllyyy don't want to.

Good book. Short read. If you like this book, you'll love Obnernewtyn Chronicles by Carmody (unless you are in it for the love story, then I can't help you ...) ( )

I snapped this book up while it was free on Amazon and I was surprised at how much I liked it. After finishing the book yesterday, I was glad to see that the second book is already available. I can't wait to read what happens next.



Thalia has been abducted from her home to be tortured and experimented on. When she escapes, she has no memory of her former life, but is given refuge in the training area of the Citadel. The results of the experimentation have left Thalia with strange new powers that she must learn to control while trying to figure out who she is. ( )
