So good

This book is really good. It keeps you interested from beginning to end. 10/10

Good book, but could be much better

Although I did enjoy reading this book and it was a very different take on the dystopian genre, I feel that it could be a little more creative and have a deeper storyline than it does. The storyline moves very slow and uninteresting until the middle-end of the book, and the way the antagonist is defeated at the end is very uneventful and there was so much hype built around it when nothing really ended up happening. The love story is pretty cliche in a book like this, but it isn’t horrible and adds another layer of characterization. The imagining of the grey land and the sidhe are very creative and unique, and the rising of a main antagonist through the bigger problem adds a necessary character/character conflict.

Best Book I've Read All Year

This is a fantasy story about Ireland and the fairy folk. It's a fantastic take about what would happen if the fairy folk tried to take back Ireland. The story is so well written that it pulls you in and doesn't let you have a moments rest. I read a great many books and have read some fabulous books this year, but this is easily the best one I've read thus far. I'm so interested to see what the author publishes next!
