Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal. (Source)
What I think of it
This book is just… WOAH.
What a great story-line with amazing and unique characters! Emily’s writing style is perfect and makes the book easy to read. No hard words which makes it easy for not English people to read the book as well.
I have read this book in 2 sittings, this book transports you in the magical world of Ava and makes you not wanting to go back to the real world. I got the chills multiple times. This is by far the best fantasy book I have read this year!
I can’t wait for this book to be released so I can see everyone’s reaction on it.
I have already pre-ordered my paperback copy and so should you, I promise it’s absolutely worth it!
I highly recommend this book, for sure if you loved ACOTAR.
Also, #TeamBerserker for the win! 😀
