    I was super excited to get my hands on an advanced reader copy of The Traitor's Game by Jennifer Nielsen. I loved her False Prince trilogy, and I was eager to read her newest book. I really enjoyed it. Her characters and world building kept me enthralled as I whipped through this fanta...

    Rating ~2.5 While, there wasn?t anything particularly bad about this, there also wasn?t anything particularly good or memorable about it either. The romance, if you can call it that, fell flat. Honestly, I thought Kestra had more chemistry in a few scenes with her betrothed...

    This book started out so promising with the premise of a kidnapped girl who holds the secrets to secure a legendary weapon to kill an evil immortal king. Sounds pretty original and exciting, right? I was in the middle of reading some amazing books when I picked this up on audiobook, so...

    Yes, I'm biased, but I hope readers will love this book as much as I do. I adore Kestra's fire, intelligence, and desire to do the right thing - something that isn't always clear to her. I love Simon's dedication, courage, and devotion to the causes he cares about. And I'm fascinated b...

    Stopped at 50 percent. I haven't read the very popular The False Prince series by this author, but my expectations were high because of the attention surrounding the other books. I have to say: I'm pretty disappointed. The premise of the book - a princess who must turn spy and t...

    More reviews up on my blog: https://thatreadhead1.wordpress.com/ This book was full of things that weren't fully explained and character traits I just hate. Kestra is that MC who is too defiant and stubborn for her own good, so selfish and arrogant, and believes that she can do it all...

    Abruptly abandoning her beloved Lava Fields, based solely on a demand from her paternal parental unit, is aggravating. The fact that it?s been three years and no reason was given for the reunion, is infuriating. When Kestra?s security carriage is attacked on the journey home, she f...

    I received a short preview of this book, so I only read about the first 20 pages or so. Nonetheless, I can?t see myself picking up the whole book so I?m going to mark this as a DNF. In the part that I read, there was a lot of telling and not showing, and it was really annoying to r...

    I really hate how this read ended up for me. The False Prince is one of my favorite novels, so I was very excited to get into another fantasy by Jennifer Nielsen. Unfortunately, this one did not work. DNF at page 266 of 388. I received a signed ARC of this at Yallfest in 2017. ...

    hahahahaha NOPE! i can't do it anymore--DNF at 30% this was so heavy-handed, cliche, and overdramatic that it became truly ridiculous. it was instalove TO THE MAX (!!!) with a near kiss at approximately 20%! not only that, but kestra begins to question her life-long, ingrained beliefs...

    The traitors game ? Just because she was kidnaped that doesnt mean she is going to make things easy for them. She isnt helping them, she is helping her if they fail then She dies. So she has motivation for them to not fail entirely. It was unique yet just like everything but...

    Release date: February 27, 2018 "Life doesn't give us what we want. It gives us what we need and asks what we will do with it." Oh, this was so much fun. It reminded me a bit of Ruined by Amy Tintera meets The Winner's Trilogy with hints of The Cadet of Tildor, the Mistborn tri...

    I AM SO TORN HOW TO RATE THIS. On one hand, I absolutely LOVED it - the sass, the setting, the plot twists, the character arcs . . . they are all so masterful. But on the other hand . . . I'm so very disappointed. Lovely Things: - Can we just recognize the extreme SNARK l...

    Maybe a 1.5 out of 5? I'm honestly disappointed in this book. I wanted so much to like it but had so many issues. the only saving grace for this book was the part right before the end, which I almost didn't make it to, because I came so close to DNFing this book. I was honestly shocked...

    There are no winners in the traitor's game... I will attest to the truth of this statement. I certainly didn't win. In fact, I got to enjoy watching my heart getting ripped out and then roasted on a spit. I don't care what anyone else says about more famous fantasy authors, Jenni...
