Total mindfck. The ultimate martyr.
Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2018
What. the. heck. did i just read? It was full of deceptions on top of deceptions on top of deceptions. In short, a total mindfck. And I fricking love it for that.
The plot left me bleeding my heart and mind out. It was gore and angst and just downright injustices here and there. It was beautiful and deceptive-mostly its beauty was deceitful. Everything I've read was...not what it had seemed like. It was a great buildup of the world/s. Although the faerie planet wasn't physically described, it felt like I was able to be there whenever the heroine had flashbacks.
I think the heroine was pretty controversial herself. Not only in her fictional world, but also to me as a reader. Since being a slave to the royal faes was what she's known all her life, if it all comes down to it, no one could really blame and shame her for the life she's led on and for the decisions she made so far. And she's a martyr so...she took matters on her own and acted alone. Still, not her fault. Her weakness, yes...but not really something to blame her for. And she had been living lies on top of lies on top of lies. It was very frustrating to read but I just couldn't bring myself to not like her, honestly. Instead...I felt for her. I just did. (Side note: I think it was darn funny that she made a fool out of everyone else, even if it included me as a reader.)
I wasn't sure what to feel for the two guys, though. I wasn't sure if they could be the anchor to stabilize the heroine.
But anyway, I'm really, really curious as to how the story would pan out after that ending.
