Worth sticking with
Reviewed in Australia on 29 May 2015
I liked this book because it is different. It's not typical. It stands out against it's predecessors. It has a main character that you may not like, but if you stick with her you will watch her grow. Yes, it was wonderful to see America and Maxon and their family. Yes, it's fun to figure out who the hero might be. The really tasty morsel, however, is seeing Eadlyn fail, make mistakes, be imperfect and rude; and then begin to learn and change. To open herself up to others. It feels real, because she's flawed. The book keeps your attention, because it keeps you guessing and you want to see how Eadlyn will deal with the challenges she faces. I think the fact it contrasts so much to the earlier books makes it even better.
I cannot wait for the next book. I am excited to see what Eadlyn does next. And I just love meeting the wonderful characters who have come into this book.
