    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...

    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...

    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...

    Kestra is spoiled, reckless, whiny, headstrong, rude, selfish and by page 110 I loved her. She is a flawed character, due to upbringing, but by no means dumb. Her quick wit, cunningness is reminiscent of Meghan Whalen turner?s Queen?s Thief (though really no one can really compare ...

    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 love all of Jennifer Nielsen's books, and Traitor's Game was no exception! I adored the flawed, complex, characters - the tough, brave, head-strong Kestra who is determined not to be a pawn, but rather to make her own choices and control her own fate, and the courageous Simon. With p...

    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. ...

    This book sounds so interesting! It?s been a while since I?ve read a fantasy, and now that it?s winter, I feel like getting back into the genre. I am intrigued by the main character?s father being on the evil side and the rebels searching for the only weapon that can kill the k...

    This is why you should pay attention to your two Cardinal Rules of book-buying * , Olivia. You brought it on yourself, you foolish girl. *sigh* Reading this felt similar to reading Scarlet. There was less smut, but the frustrating sensation of disliking an author's writing, lamentin...

    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...

    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 went into this expecting to be disappointed, and was pleasantly surprised. I LOVED a lot of things about this (the backstory! the character depth! the writing style! the characters! oh my!) but was still a little let down on a few points. One is that it still wasn't as good as ...

    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...

    DNF @ 25% I decided to quit while I was ahead with this book because it was just so frustrating. It felt a lot like all the other white fantasies I've read in the past and I just wanted something different. This definitely wasn't for me and I'm sure it has the potential to get bette...

    Well, to be honest: If I hadnt read this book all at once, this probably would have ended as a DNF for me. I kept reading through the first half to see if my predictions were right and as I said only finished it because I kept going then. I really wanted to like this book because peopl...

    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...

    OH WOW. I picked up this book on a whim at the library because it was on the new books shelf and because I had heard of the author from a lot of my friends. I meant to get the False Prince first...whoops. Excuse me whilst I go and preorder both book 2 of this series AND Resistance, the...
