Zo was determined to help the Allies, even if it meant sacrificing herself. While she knew she might be able to get beyond the wall of Ram’s Gate, she held out no hope of getting back out. But it would be worth it if she could discover anything about her enemy that could be used to help take them down.
She was the Allies’ best chance of getting inside. Her abilities as a Healer would hopefully make her useful enough to the Ram to keep her alive long enough to fulfill her mission. And it might have worked.
If only she hadn’t let her rage blind her, she would have known that the two people who cared most about her wouldn’t let her go so easily. While she was more than willing to risk her own life to avenge her parents’ deaths, she would never have risked her sister Tess’s life or her best friend Gabe’s.
Now with something to lose she’d have to be careful. She couldn’t take any unnecessary chances. She couldn’t risk being discovered as anything other than one of the nameless. And she’d have to find a way to do the impossible - to get herself and her sister back over the wall.
Jennifer Jenkins immerses readers into her story right from the start. There is no long lead up to Zo putting her plan into action. There is no lengthy backstory to slow the pace. She brings the action, the suspense, the intrigue from the get-go.
She keeps readers riveted by making them curious to know more about the nameless, more about what made Zo so vengeful, what made the Ram so aggressive, how they got so powerful, whether Zo will succeed or if she’ll fail. She lets her story unfold from not just Zo’s perspective, but from that of another incredibly appealing character, Gryphon, who is brave, powerful, loyal, determined, but also merciful and conflicted.
And she introduces a heartfelt romance that is not of the “insta-love” variety, she builds the foundation for a much expanded world in later books in the series, she teases bits and pieces of information about the other clans, and she reveals hidden plots, sympathizers, and allies, making for an interesting and engaging and unputdownable read.
NAMELESS is powerful and surprising and unexpected. It tackles a number of issues that mirror real-life issues that have arisen throughout the history of the world - starvation, genocide, enslavement, sacrifice, the cost of retaliation, doing whatever it takes to survive. It explores the many facets of human nature. It shows opposing perspectives, giving readers a more complete picture in order that they might be more understanding and sympathetic.
It has a number of strong characters that are immensely likable. It’s set in a world that is cold-blooded, severe, ruthless but still allows for kindness and beauty. It’s a story that is beautiful and breathtaking and one that is absolutely not to be missed.
This book was interesting and a bit harrowing at times, in a good way! I cared about the characters and I felt like I was involved in their struggles. I appreciated the detail used to describe the different tribes and their setting. I could see everything so clearly!
I liked Zo, but it was Gryphon who really grabbed my attention. His desire to do right, waging against loyalty and honor to his clan, made for a truly intriguing read. Combined with adventure, war, and a Romeo & Juliet style romance, this one won't disappoint.
I just bought the next in the series, but I'm thinking I might try and stretch it out a bit since the third book doesn't come out until fall. But who am I kidding? I'll probably be done with it by tomorrow, then read them both over again when the last one is released 😉
So I read it. I LOVED IT! I was relieved that I just loved the characters and the world building. My favorite character is really a toss up between Zo and Gryphon and I love them for different reasons. I love Zo because of her passion and bravery. I love Gryphon for his risk taking and fearlessness. If I had to choose one over the other I think I would pick Gryphon. I say that because his character had the most growth through the book. I would love to talk about my favorite parts but they were towards the end and I refuse to give away any spoilers but I will say I loved the cave scene.
I will recommend this to all of my fantasy YA loving friends. Ok let's be honest I will recommend to anyone who will listen to me screaming about it from the rooftop.
