Why I Picked It Up

The hype got to me.


I very much enjoyed this book. It did take me a while to get into it, but once I did, it was hard to put down. There was a twist in this book that I thought could be a possibility of where the plot would go. However, it did not annoy me when I figured out I was right. I felt for Marrow throughout the book. She wanted to save her best friend. That’s how she ends up at the royal palace. Her family and friends are important to her and we learn what she will do to keep them safe. As I said, I enjoyed this book and I look forward to continuing this series to see what Mare will do next.
