Raven Falls is a dark place, a harsh place filled with destruction. But from the shadows, a revolution is rising. In a torn country lead by a corrupted, militaristic government, fear pervades every nook, every crack. It fills every broken heart, and chases the hopes and dreams from the people. But in the midst of it all, Jesse and her brother have taken a stand. Just two kids, they’ll have to rebuild their parents’ army if they ever hope to justify their deaths. A battle is coming, whether they’re ready or not. Their only hope is to be Bold.
First of all, this book was very well written. The setting was clearly described and all the characters were well developed throughout the novel. I enjoyed the banter between Ben and Jesse and the protectiveness that Ben had for his sister. Having a brother myself, I felt like this was very realistic. There was constant action which was nice, even when Jesse wasn’t in the thick of it, she was helping with training.
The ending was amazing. I’m not going to give anything away, but I will say that the ending was well written and kept the readers on their toes. The plot twist right at the end surprised me, but in a positive way. I am definitely looking forward to the next book.
I was extremely ecstatic when my copy came in the mail, since Bold is by one of my amazingly talented friends. If there is one thing that I can say about Hannah Stewart, it is that she can write her tail off. There was plenty of action, so there was never a boring moment. If you don't believe me, just read the first paragraph.
The only reason that this product receives four stars from me instead of five is the fact that the reasoning behind the current conditions of the setting remains unclear, making it just a little difficult to understand the actions and motivations of the characters. Since the country is led by corrupted and militaristic government officials, I wondered why the government did not just bomb Raven Falls, or quell (or completely squash) the rebellions. That being said, I have hope that I will receive closure in the next few books.
Overall, Bold is an impressive debut with plenty of rip-roaring action scenes, nostalgic details reminiscent of classic literature and historical excursions, and a touch of romance--all things that make up a great novel.
