When I started reading, I was excited for a book full of a strong Juliette; a Juliette that knows how powerful she is and that is confident in herself and her abilities. Unfortunately I wasn't rewarded with as much of this as I was expecting, and we got a lot of drama, but out of all the books in the series so far, I enjoyed reading this one the most.
I’m a sucker for fantasy that’s set in the desert and that has djinn and magic, so when I found The City of Bass I was really excited to dive into it. The book was admittedly pretty long, and full of some dense sections of information, but once I got through all that the story started to pick up and I started to really enjoy it.
If you’re someone that needs a lot of fast-paced plot progression to enjoy a story, then this book probably isn’t for you. Or maybe it is. I’m usually in the anti-slow paced books camp, but I found myself enjoying this one, for the most part.
What a refreshing and exciting take on the story of Beauty and the Beast! This is a retelling, so the basic aspects of the story aren’t a secret, but it is one of the best retellings I’ve read yet.
This book was super fun! It’s insanely addicting and very fast paced. There’s never a dull moment; the action is constant and I had no idea where the story was going to lead. It was also full of adventure and had some amazing characters.
This book was definitely an improvement from the ones that came before it; the constant relationship drama was toned down, and a lot more time was spent on the rebellion.
The end of this book killed me! Everything was slow to start, but no punches were held towards the end, and it is going to be a painful wait to find out what happens next.
