Red Queen

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard I've not read Graceling, but the rest of the tagline for this book is wrong, this is definitely nothing like [b:The Selection|10507293|The Selection (The Selection, #1)|Kiera Cass||15413183]! Having read the prequel novellas prior to this really helped my understanding of the story, but there were still parts I really couldn't grasp, as it just was not well explained.

The book moves at a very slow start for the first two thirds but winds up picking up towards the end of it. Unfortunately, there's not much to any of the characters and I had a very hard time connecting to them.

Unfortunately, there's not much more I can say about this book. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't great either. I'm curious enough to read the next book in the series, but not enough to purchase it for myself unless my daughter really wants it.
