The series has been amazing throughout and i can’t wait to continue as it has the perfect blend of dystopian world, war, mysteries, magic, romance and above all fighting to survive. It makes sure that in all it provides a complete entertaining read and keep something for its readers of various tastes. For those who are searching for romance the book delivers that too without making it the only purpose for the book. The book is all about battle and survival of the fittest. the supernatural elements mentioned in the book is a little vague and hence does add to bit curiosity to what exactly its origin stories is but fortunately it doesn’t hamper in comprehending the story.

The supernatural element for me was completely new and hence provided me with something new to work and explore and making the book even more exciting. For me personally the subtle romance was a golden ticket because i could indulge in the book without going for much eye rolling and love struck teenagers ruining the fun of the core plot.


The series is amazing and worth investing. It offers something for everybody and the fast paced story plot keeps it perfect and thrilling to read. The language and narration is smooth and adds to the fun of the reading
