About this deal

Her character was strong to begin with, but I appreciated that her growth happened in a natural flow throughout the book. I kept reading the same scenes over and over again and fully forgot I was reading a fantasy book because nothing fantastical was happening.

of our deliveries are made by Royal Mail as we think they give the best service and cover all areas of the UK. Lia: Now we are going to settle ourselves down in a small seaside town, and I will pretend to be a waitress, never having waited on anyone in my entire life. Her adventure is fascinating and it depicts wonderfully both the delightful and awe-inspiring elements Pearson has created in this universe, but also the sorrowful, darker and merciless ones. I just finished rewatching season 3 of TLA, which is why I was in a good mood, but that doesn't excuse the rest of this boring, annoying, and absolutely petty plot. I also wish there were more lines of direct dialogue between the characters, instead of having Lia constantly tell me "I did this", "we talked about that", "we fought many times".VIDEO DISCUSSION TO COME CAUSE THIS NEEDS LEGIT SPOILING AND FANGIRLING AND JUST HAND GESTURES TO GET LES POINTS ACROSS. Okay, that may be overstating things only slightly (there were a couple of tiny things I took issue with) but I think it fair to overlook those small things in this case. My one slight complain would be -- as obvious from my read stats -- the lack of action in the beginning. There's a day of sporting events that culminates in a bout of log-wrestling, which is just all kinds of genius.

And if Lia had acted like this, giving in to fear, I would have liked her far, far less than, in fact, I did. I mean, I enjoyed most of it but there were some things that just NO, like the fact that the two guys fell in love with Lia in like 6 seconds after meeting her! The writing is nice, clear, fluent and straight to the point; nothing extraordinary or too elliptical, but I’ve never witnessed dull moments or scenes where I had to reread phrases more than once like it happens sometimes with this kind of books. Mary wrote Lia not only as a strong female character but also as one that is strong-minded and takes her life into her own hands, instead of letting others tell her how she should live it.

And I honestly don't think you should worry about the "love triangle" either because it's mostly nonexistent. That held my attention for the first hundred or so pages but then *surprise* I couldn't find another fuck to give anymore! I'm looking at a cover with a girl with flowers in her hair, and I'm thinking that it's some sort of Zombie Romance for teens. Between the POVs of the characters, there were snips of the history of Morrighan, Dalbreck and Venda. Pearson’s young adult series, The Remnant Chronicles, focuses on a princess who’s determined to change her preordained fate.

With war on the horizon, Lia has no choice but to assume her role as First Daughter, as soldier—as leader.The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Maybe if I were raised in privilege I could've understood Lia's fascination with doing these mundane chores not really though, but I still wouldn't understand why on earth we were spending so much freaking time watching her do them. The character at the end of the book is entirely changed from the naive and idealistic teen she starts out as, and that's the point.

They’re all role models kind of characters (without losing their mysterious aura, like in Gwyneth’s case, or gaining even a motherly touch as it happens with Berdi and Dihara), flaws and all. So this may be labeled Young Adult, but I think it's one of those books that is more of a story about a young adult. Most of the side characters were well developed, and I absolutely adored the healthy and supportive female friendships in this book. She runs away to a little seaside town and becomes a waitress, does laundry and waits for her prince to come. Emotionally, spiritually, she’s a rock, and she’s clever enough to understand when it’s time to shut up and back off for the sake of her own and other people’s safety and well-being (yes, America Singer, this one was for you).Watching my brother pick his nose would have been a more useful way to spend my time rather than on this pitiful excuse of a "fantasy" novel. Only after I reveal, the plot began and I really started enjoying the book more and actually caring for the events and the characters. The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Everything was so vivid and encompassing and every emotion displayed was so relatable that I found myself deeply enjoying the story.
