My first read by Sanaa Tahir. Interesting sibling adventure.

Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after.

I really should have read this slower. I devoured it too quickly and then had to place a hold on the second book in the series because someone else has it checked out from my library system!

Anyway, yes, I enjoyed this one so much that waiting an estimated week for the next book is rather annoying! 😂

I have to say… I really liked this.

Fantasy is NEVER my go-to genre. But I got this audiobook as a freebie years ago. I finally got around to listening to it.
And I was captivated. I already got the next installment ready to go.

Tahir does such a tremendous job of creating these characters that it doesn‘t matter what world she puts them in: you want to spend time with them and root for them.

So go do it. You‘ll be glad you did.

BookwormAHN I've read this whole series and it's fantastic 🧡 4mo
Sweettartlaura @BookwormAHN great to hear 👍🏻. I‘m definitely down for Book 2 - I‘ll see how far it takes me 🙂 4mo

I was looking for a new series since I‘m waiting for the next Sarah J Maas offering and a bookseller recommended this one and I was pleasantly surprised. Not the same dystopian trope at all and the cliffhanger is solid enough I shall go and get the next in the series. Trying to get caught up here before the holiday read challenge starts.

Catsandbooks This series is amazing! 6mo
KristiAhlers @Catsandbooks I‘m really excited to pick up book 2. Doing that today. I feel this weekend is going to be books and tea at home! I love lazy book read weekends 6mo

Overall Rating 4¾⭐
Why did I wait so long to read this, it was flipping fantastic? I haven‘t been this into a fantasy in quite some time. I loved the characters, the world is so dark, so bleak and so very interesting. It kind of has a dystopian feel to it, even. It also has a little bit of the supernatural. My only issue is the love square that the author had going on...it wasn't a deal-breaker, though.

Hi everyone! I am new here! I was kinda tired of Instagram and I looked up other app about books.

I loved all the action, the plot twists, the secrets, and all the supernatural things going on, something I didn't really expected at the beginning of the book.
The characters are awesome, you can see all the work the author put into making the voices of Laia and Elias be different.

I have no idea what took me so long to pick up this book and now I completely understand the hype. The tension and character building is amazing. I have never read a book with such a great love triangle (square) where I love all the characters equally and have no idea how I want them to end up. I care for them all! I Will definitely read the rest of this series.

I was hooked to the story from the very beginning, no point at which I was bored or wanted to keep the book down. It made me want to keep on reading.
It has dual POV, it was very interesting to understand both the characters and their conflicts. All the characters are flawed and this makes the story feel realistic. If you are looking for a book which pulls you in with it's amazing story and has flawed but lovable characters, this book is for you.

I am determined not to make my usual mistake with a fantasy series- where I read the most recent book and spend half of it trying to remember how the previous ones went. In preparation for book 4, I‘m starting from the beginning and listening to these again - I‘m determined to fully enjoy it! I saw it at my library the other day so just need to be patient!

I thoroughly enjoyed the narration. Laia is dealing with grief whilst being thrust into a role with the Resistance in order to save her brother.

Laia has to overcome her fear & undertake a dangerous task set by the Resistance. Meanwhile we are introduced to Elias who struggles with his place at Blackcliff Academy & the two inevitably cross paths

I enjoyed the different narrators for Laia & Elias & I particularly enjoyed the POV chapters on Elias

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫This was a strong, brutal first book in a series I have been waiting to read for a long time. The fourth & final book came out this month, so I‘m finally jumping in, & I was not disappointed.
The characters are strong, and you feel for them & the choices they have to make. Tahir has sent up a very interesting story that I can‘t wait to see play out over the next three books.

I don't know whether I was finally ready to read more dystopian YA fantasy, or whether this was just good enough to get me over my prior burnout on the genre, but I greatly enjoyed this! The dystopian empire has many nods to the Roman Empire, but with magic and such. There are certainly a lot of tropes, but the characters are engaging.

Another one that I needed a refresh on and another world I can't wait to get into. Listened to the #audiobook and I didn't want to stop. This series is another that's been giving me judgey eyes for a long time and I'm even more excited to get this series complete before the year is out!

Had to pause my current read in order to reread this great series as the final book just came out!

Am I the only one who rereads the entire series every time a new book comes out for my favorite authors?? Or am I nuts??

#tellmethetruth

MsMelissa I will reread depending on the series. The longer it is between books the more apt I am to re-read (I‘ve read Game of Thrones twice, for example). I likely won‘t re-read this one though. 1y
annahenke @Book_Fiend_Melissa wow GOT is serious business! Haha don‘t know that I could handle that 😂 1y

It was a slower month and I started twice as many new books as I finished. So I‘m starting out December in a bit of a slump. These were mostly mediocre reads but I was extremely happy to escape in Tahir‘s world building and finished that book in one day. I enjoyed Robinson‘s humor and needed that. And Luster was worth some hype for her phrasing and observations, but I agree with reviews that cite as problematic the toxicity of the relationship.

Haven't been in much of a reading mood but I'm hoping a good reread will get me back to it before the #WinterGames

My September #bookspin finished- I liked it- but it reminds me a lot of The Hunger Games and Red Rising, both are favorites of mine- so it did not feel very original. That being said there were many ways the author infused her own ideas and demonstrated her talent for storytelling. I will continue with the series.
