When I first found this book I was intrigued by the premise of it and since it was 99 cents I thought what the heck. I am oh so glad I bought this book. The world that Chanda Hahn created was so great. I loved the storyline of The Iron Butterfly as well as the cast of characters, Thalia was a strong protagonist who didnt let the horrors of her past overcome her. I loved her strength and her determination as well as her relationship with Faraway. The writing was captivating and really drew me in. Sure there are some spelling and grammatical errors but hey who are we to judge? This is a self-published book, if the author accidently made some mistakes who cares?? Anyway, I think its a shame that this book isn't more popular. It has everything that I could want in a book; a page-turning plot, lovable characters, a cool ass-kicking training game, a strong heroine and a talking horse all for the low price of 99 cents. So if you're on this page contemplating whether or not to purchase this book, DO IT! This book is fantastic and I doubt you'll regret it. :) Eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
As if that weren't bad enough, I agree with the reviewer who commented on the lack of proofreading - there was absolutely no editing done on this book, and it makes the author look like a third grader.
And it's too bad the author did not do even halfway the in depth character development and plotting that Misty did so well with the Valdemar series. I'm just glad my daughter did not spend a lot of money to download this book. (Yes, I read everything my daughter downloads!)
I found the plot a little lazy and loose, like the author didnt think much about whether things really made sense. For example, when people keep trying to kill the girl, the decision is somehow made by the magic school that the girl should play the hunted prey in a training exercise. You know, get over yourself girl, so what if you were tortured and people keep trying to kill you, its just an exercise, why dont you view it as empowering? Another example, even though she was tortured not to long ago, and even though people are trying to kill her with alarming regularity, she rejects having a bodyguard because she wants to "live her life" -- despite the fact that she cant remember "her life" and hasnt remotely forged a new one.
The writing is reasonably paced and engaging, and the good reviews could be legitimate. However, while I did not find this to be a terrible YA fantasy, I didnt find it particularly good either.Read more ›
Now to move on to why I only gave this book four stars... I really wish that the relationships between the characters had more depth especially the one between Joss and Thalia. I felt that everything was presented at surface value and that there was barely any digging into the nitty gritty of their relationship. I also don't understand their relationship because there was not a lot of development. I felt like a whole lot of action that pushed their relationship along was cut off and I was stuck trying to figure out where all the strings attached. Now towards the end I finally felt like I was on the same page as the characters and then boom! The book ends! It was a hasty finish, like the author didn't want to go over a certain page number so she just ended it! Maybe I feel that way because I didn't want it to end, but it is the way I feel nevertheless.
I hope in the next book we get to see a more rounded view of the characters with more background and I sure as heck hope we get some answers! Looking forward to it :)
