To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really wanted to like this series and kept pushing on hoping for something unexpected or satisfying to happen, something special. It never surprised or delighted me. I should have listened when another reviewer had called these characters, "cardboard"--it couldn't be more infuriatingly true. There is no complexity to any character. The story is horribly unoriginal, ripping from Sleeping Beauty and every cliched YA story where the heroine goes through "training", finds a fun and devoted group of friends in a high school setting, has multiple love interests as one does in high school, goes on to fight some epic battle like Joan of Arc. Oh god and of course, the story ends (is this really even a spoiler?) with her having a baby with the perfect man--but don't worry, they waited to have sex until they were married. Puke. Everything turns out as expected. I feel badly to give such a negative review but this is pretty bad and I feel like I wasted hours reading and wasted my money.
