Each of the books in this series is easily a five star, so that makes the math rather easy for figuring out the number of stars to give the box set.
Each book is a fast, entertaining, and fun read - almost deceptively so. There you are, reading what you think is a quirky, humorous, light novel, when from nowhere comes this passage that makes you stop and think in the most unexpected ways. And this happens throughout the series. I was most of the way through the second book when I began to realize the depth the author had put into the world she built. And I was finishing the third book when I actually took notice of the series title: The Rise of the Discordant. See that word "Rise"? That meant things were only going to get more complicated for our protagonists, and it did in the best of ways.
The story is told in first person with each chapter switching to another character's viewpoint. Each character is well developed with a unique voice, and I found getting different perspectives on the same event to be a lot of what I considered fun about this series.
I don't think this necessarily ruins anything, but there's a phrase in the beginning of the last chapter of the last book that I absolutely love. I want to frame it and put it on my wall, but for now I'll simply use it to close out my review.
From the chaos comes form, from form, the divide, from the divide, balance, and from the balance, order. From order the need to rebel. from rebellion, upset, from upset, anarchy, and from anarchy, chaos.
