For all that I loved the bones of this story, though, I really really wanted more character and relationship development. Don't get me wrong. The book is excellent and I love the plot. I love the way things play out for the most part, but I'm one of those people who just needs to understand how and why something happens. I need to have a thorough understanding of the lead character especially, and I need to be able to understand their motivations. And where relationships are concerned? It's okay if they move fast, but I like to see things build between characters. For me, that's where this book fell a little flat. I found myself not quite understanding Amira. While some of her decisions made perfect sense to me and I could see her motivations clearly, others seemed to come out of nowhere. Worse than that, I wasn't sure I trusted her by the end of the book. If I'm going to end a book not trusting someone, it's generally best if it's not the main character. The relationship aspect was a little messy for me in this book, as well. While I could see how a relationship might develop between one set of characters, another was professing love with legitimately no buildup. Somehow, those two went from a business sort of understanding to completely in love with no real in between. Essentially, I wanted more.
Like I said before, this story has great bones. I love the plot and I love the world. But I would rather have seen it build more thoroughly into something longer or even a series so that we could really understand the characters and see their relationships develop. Overall, though, I'd say it was a really enjoyable read.
The plot of this book is refreshing. As I said before, I felt like this was similar to World War 2 in a country that felt a lot like the countries that were occupied by Nazi’s. The struggles of the people were written so realistically that I feel the author really did research the topic. I also love the spy aspect to the story.
The characters in this book are very well written as well. Amira is a strong young woman throughout most of the book. I feel she was written very organically. I think a lot of times people get put off when the main character has conflicting thoughts and feelings. For me, this makes the character feel more real. I don’t know anyone who does not have doubts and anxiety about major situations that effect their lives. Amira, like any normal human, goes back and forth about her feelings on things she has to do throughout the middle of the book. It is not until she is towards the end that she finds the clarity that she needs to make some major decisions.
The other characters in this book are written pretty well as well, but I feel that Amira was the main character, with Grey being a secondary main character. He is an interesting character, but I felt we needed to read more from his point of view for me to really feel I got to know him better. With that being said, I feel this book was written well for Amira being the main character.
There is some sexual content in this book. These scenes are written well for the most part. There was one part where it was rough on me to read, but it was for personal reasons and the scene really did add to the story so it was worth it. I think this was also one of the better areas of the book for me. Watching budding relationships and interactions between characters while in the midst of a war was interesting.
The writing style of this story was interesting yet confusing at first. It took me a couple of point of view switches for me to get the hang of who I was reading about. With that being said, I think the way the author switched from each character really added a depth to the story that I feel would’ve been missing from a single or dual point of view style. I also feel the author did a classy job of writing about this topic in general. This is a tough topic to broach as it does have many similarities to a huge part of the world’s past. I feel the author did it justice.
In conclusion, this was a wonderfully written dystopian novel. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. I also think it was interesting to read this authors perspective of another time in the world. While it did hit close to home for me, I feel the subject matter of the book was done very well. I would recommend this book to friends and family who enjoy this type of book.
