I’m going to keep this short. If I had read this in high school, I probably would’ve enjoyed it. It has that Hunger Games and Divergent vibe. The romance was cringe-y and forced. It was almost insta-love. Ruby wasn’t consistent throughout the book. She couldn’t defend herself at the beginning, but then she seemed to grow a backbone out of nowhere. There was no character development with her. I actually considered not finishing the book a few times but forced myself to power through. I won’t be completing the series.
