BUT THESE BOOKS, GUYS, THESE BOOKS YOU HAVE TO READ.
I do not know the author and I was not asked to review these books by anyone. So here it goes.
Why are these books the best YA novels I’ve ever read?
If you read the Grisha trilogy by same author @lbardugo you are familiar with it, but I don’t think you need to in order to enjoy these books. The world is skillfully crafted, but based on some real cultures so that, even if everything is fictional, I still felt like I was learning something.
Full of twists, tricky but easy to follow once explained, brilliant.
The romantic element
The writing flows like a river. The editing is flawless.
Although these books read like a YA dystopian adventure with a touch of magic, there are underlying themes like physical disability, slavery, drug addiction, religious intolerance, trauma and many others that made the books interesting on a whole different level. Love love love.
The first book finishes concluding the main plot but leaving one cliffhanger. Take notice: not an unfinished part of the plot, but a new opening. The second book wraps up the whole story so nicely; it was very rewarding. I feel like I could read these books many times over.
In short, these are the best books I’ve read in 2016. A must for every bibliophile deserving of that name.
Who am I to talk about books?
I am GB Amman, the author of the Italian Saga (#TIS), a YA series taking place in gorgeous Italy, and talking about everything important with humor and feels aplenty.
The last volume, book 4, comes out on November 6th!!! YAY ^_^
