About this deal

But it was refreshing, in a way, and I sympathized with her reasons completely, and found myself absolutely unable to blame her for her lack of selflessness. We meet a main character, who is fierce and strong and has a stubbornness in herself, that’s filled with love for others, but also herself. Then you locate your target, a silly runaway princess who poses no threat to you - but who could be a threat to your kingdom if she marries an enemy prince -, it might not be a pleasant job, but it's not a difficult one either, at least not for you, an experienced assassin. Nathan over at Fantasy Review Barn recently used the term "grab-bag" in one of his reviews, and I'm totally stealing it, b/c that's exactly what's going on here. However, I did pick my favorite and I'm honestly intrigued how (or whether) the author will try to sway my opinion in the follow-up, since the tables have turned and the true faces behind the masks were unveiled, leaving us judging humanly flaws dead on, which is never an easy feat.

The only thing going was the mystery of Rafe and Kaden's identities, which was revealed at precisely the 65% mark. Don’t get me wrong I liked the last part of the book but still, I feel like this could have been so much more. There's a day of sporting events that culminates in a bout of log-wrestling, which is just all kinds of genius.The character at the end of the book is entirely changed from the naive and idealistic teen she starts out as, and that's the point. Then, despite the obvious unfairness of their situation, stuff happens, they fall in love, and they live HEA. Lia is said it have dark hair and the girl on the cover has dirty blonde hair and 2) I felt at some point the writing was a little repetitive and felt like it was just used to fill up some space. Lia flees on her wedding day jilting her groom at the altar and sets off with her best friend for a new life in a close by town.

My one slight complain would be -- as obvious from my read stats -- the lack of action in the beginning. I think the science-y medical and ethical issues in the plot kept me away from The Adoration of Jenna Fox initially, but having taken a glimpse at the synopsis again, I can't really say exactly why. The story, despite it's lack of anything new or original, is surprisingly entertaining, and I'll probably read the next book--who knows what bits and pieces will be thrown together in the next installment, right? Every time I looked at the title, my brain kept telling me that this was Book One of the Revenant Chronicles. Between now and the end of the book, I'm probably going to sprout magical powers out of nowhere, fall in love, and then save a country, ALL WHILE BEING A WAITRESS IN A SEASIDE TOWN.Full details of your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are available in the UK from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or your Local Authority's Trading Standards Office. She runs away to a little seaside town and becomes a waitress, does laundry and waits for her prince to come. Also, I'm at work, and even in my cubicle, they'd probably frown upon me wearing a bathrobe, however chill my boss is. And she's so badass it's not even possible to describe the insane amounts of badass-ery this girl has. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me a digital arc in exchange for an honest review.
