Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard


Glass Sword review: You know how sometimes, it's clear that an author has really only planned book 1 of their trilogy? And they're not sure what should happen next, so NOTHING HAPPENS?


Title: Glass Sword (Red Queen #2)
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Genre: YA


You know how sometimes, it's clear that an author has really only planned book 1 of their trilogy? And they're not sure what should happen next, so NOTHING HAPPENS?

Red Queen, the first book in this series, was nothing new or particularly special, but it was still good. It relied heavily on tropes, but it also had a lot of action and some good romance to keep things fun.

Glass Sword is not fun. It's Mare collecting a laundry list of special people like her. And while she does that, she mopes and whines and alienates people. Then she feels sad about how she is alienating people through her whining and moping. So she mopes some more.

You will spend the entire book wanting to grab Mare by the shoulders and go, "GET IT TOGETHER, GIRL."

On a disappointment scale of 1 - 10, with 10 being Allegiant, this is about an 8.

Do not buy this. You may not even want to bother getting it from the library. Just email me and I can sum up the plot for you in about 10 seconds.




VERDICT:


1/5 Brass Knuckles


Full disclosure: I spent money on this, sadly.
