|** spoiler alert ** I’m thinking about my star rating.
I do know that this was my most anticipated of 2018 and I’m disappointed. I did enjoy it and the ending got me extremely excited for book two but everything in the middle was very disappointing.
Grace and Fury has an amazing plot that could have been so epic and cool but the execution lacked.
When Serina gets caught holding a book Nomi stole from the palace she is sent to Mount Ruin, a prison where women live in tribes and fight in death matches for their rations of food. Serina learns to survive and become everything she was always told she shouldn’t be.
Nomi learns to be a Grace and tries to find a way to save Serina. She falls in with the Heirs brother and they devise a plan to take the Heir down and give him the throne.
This had a lot going for it. It really did.
Also the whole island being a prison thing was awesome but it lacked survival aspects. We got the fighting part and training to fight but we didn’t really see any survival technique and I was extremely ready for that.
There is also MAJOR insta love going on, with both characters and a love triangle. Uuggghhhhh wasn’t down for that at all.
Also Nomi and Asa devise a plan to take down the Heir and it all happens fast they meet one time and already have this set plan of how to do it and that’s it. They don’t plan or do anything just agree to revolt pretty much and bam. Like that’s not realistic at all.
The plot twist I kind of saw coming but I was still on the edge of my seat about it.
There was a lack of details for me. I got the details of the dress and small details of characters but either I skimmed them or it wasn’t enough for me to picture anyone in my head.
I’m struggling here. I enjoyed this. I really did. I enjoyed the action and the ending and I liked Serina and Nomi but other parts just fell super flat for me. Ugh what to do what to do?
