Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Plot: 3 Stars
Romance: 4 Stars
Writing Style: 3 Stars
Characters: 4 Stars
Genre: YA Fantasy
Plot: The plot was easy to follow and followed the same pattern as most YA novels, but I have no complaints. I will always come back for more of these books 🙂
Romance: The tension. The enemies to somewhat tolerable companions. The betrayals. It’s actually a crime that I have to wait until September to read book 2. This story had a great buildup for the potential romance in its sequel but didn’t skimp out on all those lovely stabby/witty/I’ll-never-admit-that-I-actually-kinda-like-you moments.
Writing Style: In true Stephanie Garber fashion, this book was really easy to read with straight-to-the-point prose, but the type of story-telling that makes it impossible to put the book down.
Characters: There is plenty of room for character development here. I’ve heard people calling Evangeline naive and clueless throughout this book — but when aren’t the MC’s in a YA Fantasy series naive in the first book? I don’t think she was foolish in a poorly-written way, I think Garber is making room for her growth in the next books. I honestly enjoyed her character. She was cute and witty and full of hope.
Overall: Even in the Caraval series, I knew Jacks had my heart.
