Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
Cover Thoughts: It’s not horrible but I don’t care for it either, there seems nothing “dangerous” about it, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up if it weren’t for the well known author aspect of it.
Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There’s no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.
From NY Times bestselling author Shannon Hale comes a novel that asks, How far would you go to save the ones you love? And how far would you go to save everyone else?
I enjoyed the romance. The romance wasn’t over whelming it was a nice under tone through out the whole book and part of the reason I was going… “no….no….NO WAY!”
I liked that this was action packed with some humor. I enjoyed that there was no language, or sex, or anything like unto it so I was able to enjoy it without worry of whom I could recommend this to.
I liked that there are different characters brought together and are each their own character. How they are thrown together in this twist of fate and now have to deal with it and the consequences and how power can change someone and affect the rest.
There were times when I felt the book was rushed so Hale could get to a certain point and then she slowed down the pace didn’t flow. I also felt that there were times when it was choppy (and this could’ve been my uncorrected advanced reader copy). Other than that it was fabulous.
Overall this was great and I would recommend it to anybody!
Language: none (although Maisie injects “bleep” whenever another character curses and I’m pretty sure you can figure out what the other character was saying.”
Sexual Content: moderate (PG-some kissing that leads one character to want to go further while the other character stops him/her)
Violence: moderate (PG/PG-13 people getting killed, fighting, shooting)
