Should she trust him? Is it too late to escape? Even monsters must dream of fears and wants and the sadness in his voice drew me closer Huh After slogging though six of her books I think Marie Lu has finally hooked meIt was really cool to learn that Wolfgang's sister was an actual prodigy and in real life the two of them created an imaginary world The Kingdom of BackI loved how Marie Lu brought this fairy world to life It was really neat to watch it weave into the real world but I really wanted it to be firmer It felt like brief interludes when I would've preferred it to be a permanent fixture of the book kind of like how Holly Blacks goes all in with the faeI also felt like Nannerl was a bit of a broken record when it came to women just don't DO this stuff but I suppose that's just how it wasOther than that I actually did enjoy most of this book
