Haven’t read it? Check out my review here!
My favourite part of books is discussing them with other fans. Because I want my reviews to remain spoiler-free as they’re more likely to be read by those who haven’t read the book yet, I’m also planning to post “book discussions,” for many of the books I review. Obviously, these book discussions will contain spoilers and much flailing. Maybe some intellectual-like discussion…but mostly flailing.
This is mostly going to be me ranting about things I didn’t like, namely Gabriel and The Ending.
Let’s start with Gabriel. What about him were we supposed to like? Is it the fact that he was the only one who spoke to Rhine? I didn’t feel like there was any chemistry between Rhine and Gabriel. At least Rhine and Linden had sparks. But Gabriel did absolutely nothing for me. When he was sent off to the basement I was kind of relieved because it meant we would get to focus more on Rhine’s personal journey. Sort of.
And as for the ending WHAT THE FLIPPING FLIP?! They make it to the gate and it’s like “Oh no! We can’t get out because we didn’t think our plan through at all!” AND THEN A RANDOM CHARACTER APPEARS AND IS LIKE “I WILL LET YOU OUT. ” *turns off capslock*
I get that Cecily felt bad. I can even believe that she would order the closest servant to help them. What I do not believe is that said servant would risk himself to help them. Like, this servant IS GOING TO GET CAUGHT. HE KNOWS HE’S GOING TO GET CAUGHT. WHAT PROOF DO WE HAVE THAT HE IS SUDDENLY BRAVE ENOUGH TO DO THIS. *coughs…turns off capslock again*
Deux ex machinas just really anger me.
Okay, tell me what you thought. Am I being over dramatic? Did I miss something that was an obvious hint that this servant would later help them out? And are any of you fans of Linden or is that just me?
