Wow, I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to expect because, for ARC's I don't usually read the summaries.... just in case I get wrong ideas before I even start. So I just jumper right into it and I was just hooked. The book was so addictive! it was so easy to enter Charlie's world, a world in which, depending on the language you speak, the class you belong to. So when her city is under attack and she has to leave her home, she discovers a secret that will change everything; also, the Queen realizes that Charlie is a very important piece in her game...
And then there's Max. :D and Amazing guy that has some secrets of his own, and maybe I'm just naive but I was so shocked when I found out what I found out O.O I'm not telliiiiing....
In general I was constantly being surprised as the story unraveled, especially around the ending. The story also reminded me a little bit of Eragon and The Hunger Games, though this didn't make me enjoy it any less, Charlie was an awesome character, it was a great storyline, there was a guy and I constantly had my heart pounding along with Charlie's. What more can we ask for?
What are you so afraid of?
