At 9% I was excited by the action At 19% I was bored with the characters and felt no connection At 39% The characters cemented their place into the cookie cutter hall of fame At 83% I was looking forward to the ending, I just wanted to be done with it. At 100% I knew I had just read The Terminator meets The Mockingjay.
I really have nothing good to say about it. Okay the first 10% had me intrigued. Rhonda was a poorly written character, unbelievable, a cliche’. The story was unoriginal, with ridiculous lines and plot. Mix the Terminator and the MockingJay and you have this book.
The Main Character was a stupid girl who spent too much time pinning over her lost love. She thought about him, all the time, she was the stereotypical obsessed teenager you see in cheesy movies. What makes it more ridiculous ,she couldn’t even remember him so why was she so obsessed ? That whole romantic story line was so crazy, nothing made sense. This girl Rhona, was not trusted, not believed in. Hated, feared and cloned by the human group she used to be a member of, in her old body. They have good reason not to trust her, and yet. Suddenly she becomes the face of the resistance ? That was insanely ridiculous, she became this voice for the resistance, the one who would broadcast her words of “Go Get Them”, her face. The dumb stumbling hormone obsessed teen girl ?
The evil machines ? What did they look like ? How did they function, power up ? There was never a clear picture. I added the terminator movie types into the story. They acted like the terminator so why not ? The ending, wrapped up for quickly and predictably.
I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review
The book is being sold for fans of Red Rising. Hahahahahha not even close.
