The heroine makes a few good choices, each time followed by a bad choice.
Why does this matter to a reader? Well, for my escapism reading I like to care about, or admire, something about at least one main character in a story. Here, the only question is how one or the other will fool her or himself next. Idiots are not worth my reading time
Nor are books in a series with cliffhangers.
Nor are books with multiple miraculous escapes from death that requires willing suspension of disbelief.
Do you prefer your novels to have characters who are as shallow as paper plates?
Do you feel like sometimes novels just have too much story to them, forcing you to read about things that are happening?
Then this book is for you!
This book tells the story of a girl who was a slave for less than a day, who became a weapon master to a prince (who, somehow, is the only royal person in this book that has any redeeming qualities. Seriously, everyone in the upper class in this book are just pure evil.) She went from being in line for execution, straight to having a hand maiden. It's like half of the book happened behind the scenes, and we just have to pretend that a competent story is being told.
This book was free (kindle edition) which is it's only saving grace. I wouldn't suggest wasting your time with it, however.
I agree with the review mentioning that usually the worst choices were made by the main characters. The requirement for a suspension of disbelief is mandatory if you plan to read this book and try to take it seriously. As a note, morbid curiosity prompted me to get the next book and it just gets more and more bizzare from here.
So why three stars instead of two or even one? First off, this is almost pure comedy gold if you can get through it. Plus it has given me an idea for a new drinking game; for those of legal drinking age, not pregnant, not on any medications that require them to not drink and are not driving.
Read the book. Gather a group of friends and a lots of booze. Retell the story and for every time someone asks you a question starting with "why" or "how" or even "what on earth" and the response is "Because story!", for, in fact, there is no logical reason anyone would do most of the things in the book...take a shot.
I do not recommend this game with the second book as it would probably give you and your friends alcohol poisoning. Happy reading and cheers!
For example, a boy gets whipped and they throw his lifeless body in a cart, then the main character worries that his life will be ruined. Lifeless = dead, but the author is using it instead of unconscious.
There's not a lot of motive for story choices and it jumps around too much. Things happen for Plot Reasons, not because they're understandable or realistic.
Point of view? Start with main charter for most of the book, but jump to other characters POV to move it along. Including characters we don't know. And only 1 chapter from their perspective is fine. No need to get attached.
Magic? Sure, let's give her some of that. But, only sometimes. And throw a fortune teller in there somewhere for giggles.
Good fighter? Yes. No. Maybe. Give her training. No, that takes time. One morning of training is sufficient. Eh, magic can be the fallback, but focus on the battles.
Love triangle? Sure, those are always fun. Friend zone one? Yes. No. Maybe. We'll figure it out later.
Righteous purpose? Ya, fight for the common people. No, become treated like royalty for no reason after getting out of the dungeon, then become a princess. Sort of. Don't explain it, it can just happen.
Smh. I finished the book on principle, but I thought my eyes would roll out of their sockets before the end. No intention of reading the rest.
