This book really carries on from how betrayed Adelina felt from the first book; without missing a beat it continues on to the next part of the villain's life. I've never actually seen an author write about a villain's life like this, and this book proves once and for all that there are two sides to every story.
This book is absolutely amazing, it’s not your typical “hero goes on a quest to save the world”.. it’s much deeper than that. There is violence and darker themes, but seriously.. let your kid read it! I mean, I understand if it’s too scary for your 8 year old, but a 14 year old being told they can’t read this is sort of unbelievable. The only reason I’m saying this is because I love this book SO SO MUCH. It really is amazing.
okay, okay LISTEN HERE. ik y’all are saying that the content is appropriate for like ten year olds because it’s not necessarily that “explicit”. yeah sure but teens will relate with the story more and understand it better. besides when i was ten, i would have gotten scared out of my freaking mind by reading this. it’s really dark, but really good. this book deals with dark issues and for that reason i think it’s more targeted to older audiences.
