UNTIL THIS ONE!
Holy cow. I was addicted from chapter 1. It was explosive and fresh, something new that I haven't see before. And the cast of characters are so much fun! I'm partial to Ruby Ricin, she's a spitfire pixie who doesn't take crap from anyone. I'm a huge fan of supporting characters and all of them in this book are my faves. Even the "resident mean girl"! She was a character I truly enjoyed hating.
I can't wait to see more of the Everwilde world in the upcoming books and to see what Summer decides to do with all the revelations that happen at the end of this book. I wont spoil it for you, but there were some super huge plot twists and I loved them!
Ms. Grey could write a dictionary and I would read it because she's just that good.
There's a cruel prince, a wildcat that needs some training and a magical world that crashed into ours. What's not to love? I will admit to seeing through the Winter Prince and his icy expression. I was pretty sure I knew what would happen when he caught Summer stealing his apples. Didn't matter. I just enjoyed the journey.
Summer is this wildcat that tries to feed her family by any means possible, including stealing apples from the Fae land beyond the shimmer. Her mouth gets her in a lot of trouble but her heart saves her just as often. Despite having everything stacked against her, she manages to make it to Evermore Academy. I liked her. She cares deeply and works hard. That helps her make some critical friends and survive.
The Winter Prince is hiding things. Yeah, I knew that. As the story goes on, I figured out more of what he was hiding. I'd never really call these two enemies, though he tries very hard to be in that role. But he cares too deeply too. It shows and I really liked that.
The story has an almost dystopian feel to it with a side of Fae. They "crashed" into the western side of the US and decided to stay. Those human that survived their "magical disaster" of an arrival were barely surviving. Those human on the eastern side of the US thought it was awesome to be friends with the snooty Fae. Talk about issues. This society has some. It's a great backdrop to a story of magic and fate. I really enjoyed it.
I devoured the first half, and then slowed my reading way down. Not because I wasn't still enjoying it but because I was. And book 2 comes out very soon. I was trying to make it last. That didn't happen and now I'm waiting just like everyone else is.
This hooked me in by the second paragraph and I immediately fell in love with Summer's brain. Her sarcasm, the way she rolls her eyes at things. She's been through a lot in this post-disaster of a world and I loved that in spite of having so many things done to her, she chooses to be responsible and do what's right, which is ensuring her family is fed and safe.
Half of North America blew up due to a fae fight gone out of hand. "Oops" is all they can say, but even putting up a shimmering wall does nothing to keep away the darklings, feral creatures worse than the fae. And the poor people in contact of the toxin leaking out get turned into these things. Summer's lived this this all her life so the fae are just another thing to know. But when she ends up at Evermore Academy, she has to learn things all over again and ensure her own survival among the human shadows and children of the courts.
I had my ups and downs with this. She started out great, but then I got to the academy and mean girls appeared. They were very basic and it got old fast, especially when some things started sounding like all the other academy books I gave up on reading. Still, the Winter Prince was really hot and I low key live for the bullying. There's something about watching two people go from hating each other to loving each other that gets me. Which... is probably why her hatred for him got old fast, as well. For me, it was pretty obvious that he didn't really hate her. I mean it's easy to know it's a romance and connect the dots but it took me away from the story more than once, and her cursing him didn't make the ride and smoother.
I also had a few problems with the small things that built up but I won't mention them here for fear of spoiling. Otherwise, yes she is annoying and yes, I still enjoy her and Winter Prince's story behind this installment's and yes, I will be reading the next one. This felt like an opening to something far more grand so for now I'll be waiting in this lobby until the elevators open up for me.
