Format : ebook

Terbit : 3 Mei 2016

ISBN : 0062392190

Hanya 3  bintang, sebenanya buku ini bisa aku beri rating 4 bintang, hanya saja penilaianku agak sedikit bias karena aku Team Kile.

Cover seri The Selection memang selalu eye catching termasuk The Crown ini. Cuma sejujurnya cover buku sebelumnya yaitu The Heir adalah cover paling bagus diantara semua seri.

Untuk segi cerita sampai ke plot semuanya fine dan aku cukup suka sih. Plotnya termasuk cepat buat seleraku dan isi ceritanya memang berkembang dari buku sebelumnya.

Karakter Eadlyn Schreave sendiri sebenarnya aku cukup suka. She’s the real queen. Di buku ini Eadlyn terlihat lebih kuat dan lebih pintar. Sejak Raja Maxon sibuk mengurusi Ratu America yang sakit, Eadlyn mulai menggantikan tugas ayahnya sebagai raja. Selain itu kepergian adik kembarnya Ahren ke Perancis juga merupakan salah satu pukulan bagi Eadlyn tapi dia tetap tegar dan menjalankan tugasnya. Kalau saja dia lebih memilih Kile dibanding Erik, Eadlyn bakal jadi salah satu heroine favoritku. Tapi … tapi, kenapa dia harus pilih Erik? KENAPA? Kasian kan Kile, padahal dia rela kalau dia harus tinggal di istana demi Eadlyn dan membuang mimpinya buat jadi arsitektur terkenal yang membangun berbagai jenis bangunan. KENAPA EADLYN? KENAPA? My poor baby Kile L

It’s the second book from The Darkest Minds trilogy. Well, I can say it’s a good book altough I don’t really like how the plot that is  too slow for me. For half of the story I dozed off so many times when I read it. It’s a good thing to read how detail what the character feels from their point of view but sometimes it just too much. Too much detail makes the plot slow and makes it boring so yeah it’s good but it’s not my favorite kind of book.

Aside from the plot I like how the stroy start from Ruby when she’s working for League till she meet Liam, again. Ruby, still the girl who hate and afraid of her ability as an Orange. She’s not really changed and sadly her character stuck. So yeah she’s not one of my favorite female character. Liam, I miss the old Liam, the first book Liam. I miss how carefree and easygoing he is. I know a lot of things happened to him but I don’t know, just show us that side of him is still there. Chubs, dude I like how Chubs changed since the first book, he’s still smart but now he’s more mature and can control himself. The new addition character Vidia and Jude aren’t bad either. I like them just fine. But I miss Zu, like seriously how cute her character. I know we have a new little character Jude but he’s different from Zu. I prefer Zu than Jude, I mean her character is more natural than Jude that I think too cildish for his own good. Clancy, still the freak dude that I hate. I don’t know but I have this feeling  from him that reminds me of Warner from Shatter Me trilogy. Clancy and Warner have the same mood and mysterious character that creep me out.

So yeah, I know that I give 4 stars for The Darkest Minds but for this one, Never Fade sorry but I have to give this book 3 stars.

Review : Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) by Veronica Rossi

StillBlue_jkt-c-660x1024

What a great way to end the Under the Never Sky trilogy. I love how this book is all about sacrifice, start from Perry to Cinder’s sacrifice. And the most I love from this trilogy is how all the caharacters growing up on their feels and their character.

First from Perry, in the first book we can see a boy that wanted to be a Blood Lord learn how to make an agreement with a Dweller girl. In this book Perry still just a naiive boy and he never expected himself to fall for the Dweller girl. Perry grown in the second book after he finally killed his brother and became Blood Lord in this second book he started to adapt to his new life we can see how he made a mistake by trusting Kirra and how he made a good decision to relocate the Tides to a cave because of the Aether Storm. And in the third book we can see all the sacrifices he had to made. How he had to survive when Sable tortured him and how he sacrified his life for his tribe so they got a chance to find the Still Blue.

Aria. Her life is seriously changed since the night she went to Ag 6 with Sorren. Yes in the first book sometimes she still act as a dumb Dweller girl but I can accept that because she’s all new into the outside. I mean all her life she spent it in Reverie, and suddenly she had to life in the outside with Aether Storm always threat her to death. Her ability as an Aud is amazing. She learn what, like 1 year and then BOOM she’s an awesome Aud. I just love how her character become mature since the first book till Into the Still Blue.

Roar. Damn! He’s my favorite character in this Under the Never Sky trilogy. Yes I said that my favorite character in the first book is Perry but in after read the second and third book I fall for Roar. He’s not perfect yes, He just a boy or a man or a manboy lol. I love how he came up after what happened to Liv. He didn’t let his broken heart lead his life. He had his grief for Liv but aftre that he started become himself again, he started to help Perry and Aria again.

After all I give this book 4 stars.

Review : Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky #2) by Veronica Rossi

{2715AEE6-83F3-4DF9-993D-DF98200BC61C}Img400

“Days were darkened by clouds and the blue cast of Aether. Night were brightened by the same. They flowed together, the edges blurring into an endless day. An ever night.”

It’s been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don’t take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe’s precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both.

Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night? (Goodreads)

^^^

A good sequel from the first book, Under the Never Sky. From the cover that show us an image of a boy that we assume Perry, we can see that this book’s problem centered on Perry, after all he’s a Blood Lord now. We can see how he survive and adapt his new life as a new Blood Lord. How he have to think about his tribe and Aria in the same time. Poor Perry, people on his tribe not really trust her as the new Blood Lord, maybe because of his age, or his experience. Another problem is that the Tides don’t trust Aria, because she’s a Dweller.So yeah Perry have to face a lot of problems in this book. But there’s something that I hate from Perry in this book, like when he felt jealous of Aria’s relationship with Roar. I mean it’s pathetic to think that Aria and Roar were runaway and that they are together, that will never happen, but still Perry think the possibility of it.

It’s another story for Aria. In this book Aria is getting stronger, now after she realized that she is half Dweller and half Savage she learn to accept and learn how to live as an Outsidder. And her power as an Aud is getting stronger too. She become another Roar’s bestfriend after what they’ve been through since Delphi until the Horns tribe. When I read that she make an agreement with Sorren I thought that is a bad idea, I thought she will fall into another trap but yeah Sorren surprised me when he keep his words. I really love how Aria’s character have grown into a stronger character.

Roar. Poor Roar. He have to face Liv who will mary Sable then after he can talk Liv to go back to they home at the Tides he have to see how Liv sacrifice herself to dead to save him. It’s so sad, it’s like having a hopes up then poof suddenly it all went to down.

This book is so good, it makes me waiting and wanting to read the third book Into the Still Blue. The rating for this book is 4 stars.

Review : Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi

717-ucdE5RL

“A world of nevers under a never sky.”

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland–known as The Death Shop–are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild–a savage–and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile–everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky (Goodreads).

One of the great dystopia book I’ve read. If you’re dystopia book kinda girl like me you’re gonna love this book. In this book we can see 2 characters that live in different world, Aria the Dweller girl and Perry the Savage. They have an agreement to bring Aria’s smarteye to Perry’s friend, Marron so he can fix it. Aria’s smarteye is the one wich can help Aria to find her mother in Bliss and it can use as a barter for Perry to get his nephew back whose kidnap by Dwellers.

I just love how their differentce become fuse as their journey goes on. The hate they feels toward eachother slowly turn into something that make Perry rendered to Aria. Aria and Perry learn to respect eachother as a person, more than a Mole (what Perry used to call Aria in the begining) and a Savage.

Aria, one of the best female character I’ve read. She’s not strong but not weak either. She just perfectly fit as girl who lived inside virtual and Realms and suddenly have her world turn upside down and yeah she learn how to live in a world that real. She’s curious about the world and that make sense since she is a Halfy (what Roar called her).

Perry a.k.a. Peregrine, the best character in this book. People may think he’s wild but from what he did to Talon, Aria, and Cinder we can see that he have big heart. He’s a Scire (gifted with strong nose and could breathe and know despair or fear) and a Seer (gifted with uncomon sight) and because he marked by 2 senses people think that he’s cursed (His father was a Scire and his mother was a Seer). He’s a good leader a good uncle and a good friend. And his skill as a hunter is so damn cool, seriously, you don’t want to mess with him unless you want to die.

Roar, Perry’s bestfiend. I love his character sooooooo much. Roar and Perry is a good combination. If Perry is the wild one  Roar is the calm and easygoing one. His love for Perry’s sister, Liv is beautiful yet tragic. I mean he’s an Aud and Liv’s a Scire. People said that if you mix the blood from different Marked you’re cursed and that happened to Perry. And besides, Liv was send by Vale (Perry’s brother), Blood Lord from their tribe (Tide) to another tribe (Horn) to be marry the Blood Lord, and as a barter the Horns will give a lot of food for the Tides.

I give 4 stars to this book for a good setting, and interesting character.
