Review: Marked (HON 1)

Marked
Marked by P.C. Cast
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

What’s there to day. This book is terrible (and has a lot of asides). Totally delves into the (view spoiler) slurs for pretty much every sentence and every time Aphrodite shows up.
Also the Zoey is s huge asshole by forceably taking over the Dark Daughters because she feels they are wrong. She doesn’t tell Nerferet, nor use the chain of command.
The other characters are all cardboard and nothing but tropes, and while there is a hint of something good there, it’s buried under so much shit you’ll take forever to get to it.

Review: Seraphina

Seraphina
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I picked up this book because it’s sequel came up as “Books like Red Queen” and I wanted to read the first book so the second one made sense. And yes you need to read the first to understand the second.

This book has a lot going for it, strong main character and strong female secondary characters. There is next to no girl hate in here and what is there is regulated to a few lines on one part of the book. The only drawback to this is the amount of violent woman death. Thankfully two are dead before the story starts, Seraphina’s mother and Lars’ mother. Another dies due to being poisoned. While the death of men remains low, one is stabbed, two are beheaded. One before the story.

So what about diversity...
