    Ok, first can we just talk about how Jonas is the most useless rebel to ever rebel The poor guy has done so much over the course of 3 books, and yet absolutely nothing He s like that kid in class who the teacher thinks is a genius but really just scrapes by on luck, chance, and other people s work At this rate he s probably going to stumble onto the throne accidentally and wind up ruling And I love it all Anyways, yeah, there are a lot of Game of Thrones comparisons that could be made Ok, first can we just talk about how Jonas is the most useless rebel to ever rebel The poor guy has done so much over the course of 3 books, and yet absolutely nothing He s like that kid in class who the teacher thinks is a genius but really just scrapes by on luck, chance, and other people s work At this rate he s probably going to stumble onto the throne accidentally and wind up ruling And I love it all Anyways, yeah, there are a lot of Game of Thrones comparisons that could be made There are the semi incestuous siblings whose dad is the cruelest king ever There s a Watcher boy who travels in the body of a hawk There s a Sansa figure Cleo whose entire family was killed, her kingdom overthrown, and she has to marry the new prince and stay alive in the enemy s castle There s this power hungry sadistic kid who kills people for fun There s a random gay royal guy from another land who has a brief shining plotline and then gets murdered Oh, and there s the whole medieval land with a ton of interwoven characters who are all killing each other right and left and NOBODY IS SAFE.But I honestly like this seriesthan Game of Thrones It might not be as complex, but it also doesn t have 50,000 characters I have to keep straight, rambling prose, and graphic sex which some people do love, but it s not my cup of tea I m still hoping Cleo gets some dragons to take back her family s throne, though

    See this review andlike it on www.bookbastion.net __________Break out the bubbly for me friends, because I have finally escaped finished, this pure torture book Cut to me, wondering where all the glowing reviews for this series come from, because I just don t get it There are so many better written YA series out there that I would recommend over this one, because this one s got problems It s derivative to an extreme Every plot point and character outline is lifted directly from Game of See this review andlike it on www.bookbastion.net __________Break out the bubbly for me friends, because I have finally escaped finished, this pure torture book Cut to me, wondering where all the glowing reviews for this series come from, because I just don t get it There are so many better written YA series out there that I would recommend over this one, because this one s got problems It s derivative to an extreme Every plot point and character outline is lifted directly from Game of Thrones You ve got incestual siblings and their mean old dad who runs the world You ve got the downtrodden Stark daughter who has been separated from her family and you ve got the pure hearted do gooders rebelling against those in power In this book, everything is painfully simplified There is no nuance to Morgan Rhode s writing When she wants you to know that a character s a bad dude, it s going to be telegraphed 14 times in earlier chapters before the big reveal so that there s absolutely no surprise When she wants you to sympathize with a character she s going to give that character a stock scene where they pour their heart out in an overly sappy monologue that fairly screamslove him,which only made me dislike them evenIt feels like there s no heart or soul to this series No moral lessons underpinning the plot to make this series worth reading It s poorly plotted events and poorly drawn characters randomly bumping into each other over and over again and sometimes killing each other, which might be entertaining if it was well written Spoiler alert it s not, so it was painful to read And not just for me either The Fantasy League I was reading this series with fell apart trying to get through this book It wasn t from lack of trying but rather a lack of a reason to care This series killed off all our interest one by one like some horror movie slasher By the time I finished it was like I d just crawled out of the woods at the end of the movie, and I didn t even get an I survived t shirt to make it worth it I have to rant about the LGBT rep in this series In my review for Rebel Spring, I brought up some issues with a particular male character who was revealed to be bisexual For the record, it was not the fact that this character was revealed to be bisexual that annoyed me It was the way the reveal was treated shoehorned into the final 30 pages of the story and the way it played out readlike sexual assault of an intoxicated character, rather than a romantic reveal.Regardless, because Rhodes had already committed to the storyline at the end of the last book, I went into this one looking forward to seeing how it played out It sthan disappointing It s badly handled and almost offensive to me as a gay man, because it s pretty clear Rhodes had no intention of showcasing a M M romance in the same way she does her straight pairings Keep in mind, at this point in the series Cleo has kissed every leading male character, including some of the ones that are now dead Straight characters hook up left, right and center in this series while the M M relationship stagnates and the characters dance around each other, never saying what they mean or expressing real romantic feelings for one another Frankly, It s not even a M M relationship It s a subplot that was shoehorned in for diversity rep by an author who clearly had no intentions of showcasing it in the same way as she does her straight relationships It s like someone told Morgan Rhodes that LGBT rep was profitable in the YA community and included the storyline only to draw in those readers, with no real intention to ever do anything with it To drive that point home, view spoiler she kills off one of the two involved in the relationship at the end of the book before their true feelings are ever discussed hide spoiler Seek out other books if you re looking for a well written LGBT romance There are plenty of other YA books out there where the author actually wants to write those relationship dynamics Really, I don t know why I expectedReaching the end of this review, I can feel the weight lifting right off my shoulders because I an finally done with this book, and this series I won t be reading the rest because I couldn t care less what happens next To be quite honest, I ll likely be avoiding Morgan Rhodes books in general in the future There s lots of great YA series out there Give one of those a shot before spending money on this one 1 5 stars, because Goodreads won t let me give less ___________Buddy reading this hot mess with the Falling Kingdoms Fantasy League Frankie Lovely Mary, Ravager of Tomes Kaylin Rachelle Jeremy Lord, give me strength
