Review: Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
I first wanted this book because of the pretty cover, then I read the summary. And I wanted it even more. Then yesterday I was bored, and I wanted to try this book. And I loved it right away. It's like an asylum/prison, and it is creepy and evil and I loved it. Most suprising, though, is that I liked the writing as well :) Found it to be really good.
The plot in this book is really exciting; I liked it the most in the beginning. It was a bit too much near the end, I think. But it is still really good. I don't want to say too much about it, because I liked the mystery of the plot. So I'll just say that it's good, and interesting :)
The characters I mostly liked. I really liked Faye at first. She was an awesome broken character. And I adored her. I adored Kel even more. He was a great love interest; and I loved him a lot. Liked the romance in this book, but hated what happened in the last half of the book. Faye sort of fucked up.
And I lost a lot of interest. Because many things didn't make sense. And I hated how Faye distrusted Kel so easily. It just happened too fast, I think. The first she likes him, which happened perfectly, but then she suddenly hated him and wanted to kill him. With not really any real proof that he had done anything. So. Yeah. I didn't liked that.
But still, I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot more characters in this book, and I liked them all. They were all interesting to read about, some good, some bad. What I really loved though was how horrible it was at Holbrook Academy. I just love those things. Although it was bad. And scary.
One of the reasons why I want a sequel is because I want more romance. But also because I want to know what happens next. Considering it ended without us knowing anything about what would happen. And I want to know more about the world; because it is a dystopia or post-apocalyptic world. And it sounded really interesting to learn about. Want more of that.
Anyway, this is a great book, and you really should read it :)
