Why I read the book

The first book in this series was the last book I read in 2019. Cinder ended on such a high note I was ready to jump into this second book to see how the story continued.

I listened to this on audiobook.

What I liked

The characters in this series are very likable. The good ones are easy to root for, the bad ones are easy to root against. I love the multiculturalism of the characters too.

I enjoy the basic future-tech and ‘state of the world.’ Neither of these things are over thought. There are people living on the moon, there are cyborgs, there are hover craft. These things are used in the story, but the story doesn’t hinge on the origin of the technology.

Obviously the series is based on a kind of retelling of fairy tales and this triggers a connection to the story. Because of familiarity with the story you think you know where it’s going, but then it ends up in a different place.

What I didn’t like

I can’t say there was anything that I didn’t like. It was very good!

My review

I give the book 5 out of 5 wolves 🐺.

This was my 5th book of 2020.
