"3.5/5 I can’t say much since this is the second book in the series. Honestly the First half was pretty dull and dragged, but the second half had me interested at this point, I'm not sure if I love our main character in this one especially She bothered me a little to much with her romance choices. Then again, I guess it is age appropriate for her age. Mare's thoughts are so repetitive, always about cal like the girl we get it, please lol and about how special she is, and I'm all for a strong Female character, but it got so repetitive. This series thrives on the action parts. I wish there were a lot more of that i wish I cared and liked our characters a bit more, then I would probably feel the intensity of the story and the risks; I genuinely do love the concept of the powers and the silvers and Reds but I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna continue on with this series to be fair I’m not the target audience maybe if your a young adult this would be more appealing to you "
"Second half was better, but def interesting! Excited for the next one"
"This book was a good sequel - not nearly as good as the first book, but still deserves 5 stars. The first half was slow, much slower than I would like. But halfway through, it picked up and it picked up fast. Kept my on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen - which characters would survive and how will the events they do survive affect them."
"I really really like this series! At times it may feel boring but I really like the authors writing style and Mare at war w herself and her identity. Couldn’t put it down, 3.5/5 "
