โ€œI would have lived in peace. But my enemies brought me war.โ€
๐ŸŒŸ I was given this book as a birthday gift from one of my most “book-expert” friends.
She told me that I will probably like this, she was right.

๐ŸŒŸ There are many reasons why people read, this book has an additional reason *Ahem*


๐ŸŒŸ My friend also told me that male writers are different from female writers and I can totally see that in this book. I like the whole idea behind this, I thought it was going to be like Red Queen but they are nothing alike.

๐ŸŒŸ My favorite thing in this book was the MC development, you can see and feel him changing chapter after chapter.

๐ŸŒŸ The plot twists were nice, there were some boring scenes but overall it is good. The biggest problem in this book is that it was so DENSE: too many characters, complex names, too much going on, I was confused multiple times but I got the main points perfectly and when I read the summary, I found out that I didn’t miss out as much as I thought.

๐ŸŒŸ I am writing this review after one whole year and that was the actual time it took me to be in the mood again to continue the series which I am excited to do now! Final Rating is 3 stars.

โ€œYou do not follow me because I am the strongest. Pax is. You do not follow me because I am the brightest. Mustang is. You follow me because you do not know where you are going. I do.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ Prescription: Definitely for fans of Sci-Fi novels with dense world building and characters!



  1. I have it on my Kindle and I am dying to give it a try! I find your reasons interesting… if you ask me… haha
    I do agree that the authors write differently if they are women and men… wouldn’t all man authors have man main characters and the other way around?
    I am shocked that you gave it a 3-star review! but I think I see your point on the dense and the confusing XD

  2. It is worth it! I love to support male authors and that’s why I tried it ๐Ÿ˜€
    I am turning into a grumpy old man, my ratings are getting lower, I don’t know but it was confusing and I couldn’t ignore that -although not for many readers so it is probably me-
