"The Circle series was the one I grew up reading on repeat. It holds a soft spot in my heart. So when I went to pick up this series- this book especially was a hard read. First, based on language and story, I can tell it's an earlier book. Second I strongly dislike the major jumps in time that is used. I'm sure if I had grown up reading it, I might have the grace and forgiveness of nostalgia."
"Wasn’t bad, I just never really found the end goal in the book which kinda ruined the plot for me since I didn’t know what was being built up to, other than that it was good, the battles were solid, and I liked Alanna’s reveal at the end as well "
