baronessekat: (book)
Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I liked this one a lot better than the first book and I found the first book really good.

The only way I can describe this series is X-Men meets Hunger Games. But that does it an injustice.

I'm liking that the author is giving the heroine of the story more depth and really conveys her feeling so completely over her head and out of her depths with what is happening. Unlike in Hunger Games, she didn't even initially start out asking for what happened to her, or sacrificing herself to save a family member. She did what she had to in order to survive and now she has to keep going.

I like that she is being shown dealing with the traumas. How she's being effected by PSTD (though it's not anything said but all the symptoms are there) of the torture, abuse and sheer hell she's had to endure.

And the narrator of the audiobook is really good and her voice alone grips me and drags me in and the story keeps me.

I will certainly be looking for the next book.
