My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A maudlin ending to a pretty maudlin series. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good book, but it just never managed to soar, always weighed down by a dark, hopeless world filled with damaged, dreary characters.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I actually really enjoyed this one, definitely much more than the first one. I still find the main character fairly unlikable, but she’s starting to win me over. I love the idea of doing away with the factions, but I also always suspected there was still a greater world outside of those walls. Plenty of heart, and more than enough action; this was a fun read.
