Let’s start from the beginning, from page one I felt like I was reading some descent fan fiction. You know the type where it has potential to be a good story but the author is so bad at telling the story it fails. Yea, that is this book.
I understand that some people just do not like too much detail. I get that it does get annoying reading all of that detail that really just does not matter. ALTHOUGH, you still NEED to have detail in your story to allow the reader to enter it. There is literally no detail in this story - what so ever- where it matters. In fact, the most detail you get is when the protagonist is describing her dresses. Really, that's where you decide to put it?
Another issue the author has telling the story is that she will repeat information in the most redundant way. For example, there is a part in the store where the Protagonist is finally able to leave a room that she is imprisoned in. You know this fact because one of the characters in the story makes it a big deal and from there she begins to roam the layout. EVERY PARAGRAPH after YOU, the reader, finds out she can leave that room is telling you OVER AND OVER again that she can move around finally. Not even as a passing thought, literally like we are learning something new. The funniest example I can think of is when the Protagonist gets drunk for the first time and remembers it in detail, then states she was able to start leaving her room. It is literally a "Duh, you just told me how you got drunk while being in that bar room even after I WAS READING YOU doing it”. The whole thing ended up having a retelling with a retelling in it.
There was just too many issues with this book that I could go on and on. Times where the Protagonist just destroyed any atmosphere created, which was already hard to do with the lack of detail, or how for some reason she would act high and mighty by talking down to people when it was her fault. I don't know how many times I wondered why the characters did what she said, especially the ones that could kill her with one hit.
The story just is not great. Again the story line had great promise but the writing just ruined it. I could not even get into it enough to even see the scenes being played out. The only good thing about the experience I had about this book is that I got it while it was free. I would not recommend anyone to read this book.
The heroine/female protagonist Addie or Adelaide was a badass. From the start, I knew she was head strong and got a little mischief in her hands when she decided to join the Red Guard, something that no other female had ever done before. Considering she had a lot in her hands and friends who turned out to be something else, I somehow felt drawn to her other personality that showed her solicitousness. As the story progressed, I kind of anticipated the turn of events with the other characters, but Addie's own self-discovery in the end was a beautiful surprise.
On the other hand, Xander Bane wasn't the man I expected him to be. When I didn't realize at first his true nature, I thought he was too old for darling Adelaide and couldn't understand his fascination. When the truth dawned upon me, that's when I started liking him. In the end, I thought he and Addie deserved something more than they bargained.
The other characters were a bit edgy and high-strung. Livvie or Olivia surprised me the most and I thought she deserved another break.
Overall, the story was good and entertaining. I was just a little bothered with the typos. But other than that, Descent was a great start of a series. The cliffhanger was awesome, by the way.
