I am in love with this book. Seriously! Best book I've read in months.
it's hard to write reviews of book you love that make sense and aren't
completely filled with fangirl flailing. But here it goes:
World-building: Extra Awesome!
were so many little details and excellent minor characters. Like Iko,
who is probably my very favourite character. The world-building, as I
said, was a highlight for me. It was so good. There were no noticeable
info dumps, but I felt like I really knew the world.
possibly negative thing I have to say is that it was a touch
predictable. Retelling often are, by their nature, but the big twist
near the end I predicted on page 116. This didn't matter to me though, I
still loved the book and having guessed the ending didn't diminish my
enjoyment at all. In fact, it probably increased it because I got to
shout "I KNEW IT!" at the top of my lungs. So satisfying.
I loved Cinder and wish I hadn't waited so long to start it. But on the
bright side, now I can dive straight into Scarlet.
