Girls of Paper and Fire (Non-Spoiler Review)

Girls of Paper and fire  by Natasha Ngan

unknown-1

Published by jimmy patterson; 1st edition on November 6, 2018

Genres: Young Adult, fantasy

Pages: 400

Format: Hardback

Source: arc and november Owlcrate

2018 challenge: Beat the backlist challenge

Buy on AmazonBarnes & Noble, Goodreads

I would give this book 4.5 for a review.

Summary!!!

In this richly developed fantasy, Lei is a member of the Paper caste, the lowest and most persecuted class of people in Ikhara. She lives in a remote village with her father, where the decade-old trauma of watching her mother snatched by royal guards for an unknown fate still haunts her. Now, the guards are back and this time it’s Lei they’re after — the girl with the golden eyes whose rumored beauty has piqued the king’s interest.
Over weeks of training in the opulent but oppressive palace, Lei and eight other girls learns the skills and charm that befit a king’s consort. There, she does the unthinkable — she falls in love. Her forbidden romance becomes enmeshed with an explosive plot that threatens her world’s entire way of life. Lei, still the wide-eyed country girl at heart, must decide how far she’s willing to go for justice and revenge.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this fantasy novel alot. I thought it was the prefect mix between the selection series, ash princes and such a rich world like soundless. I really enjoyed the lead characters througout this novel and like the lead in ash princess and she was such a different type of hero. I thought the world building that was inspired by Malaysia soctiey was the highlight of this novel. I wish the ending was a tad more fleshed out and that i felt immediately connected to the characters but I really loved the feelings of hope and inspiration that was the foundation of this novel. I will def be checking out book 2 when it comes out this year

Genres: Young Adult, fantasy

Pages: 416

Format: audiobook

Source: personally bought

2019 challenge: Beat the blacklist challenge

Buy on AmazonBarnes & Noble, Goodreads

I would give this book 4.75 for a review.

Summary!!!

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

My Thoughts:

Very good start to the series! The world building was a bit weak but towards the end i grew to really love it! I really liked the characters and the presence of fantsey world in the future is exciting! I really loved the various POV that we got in this book. I thought the pacing of this book was also super well crafted. I really enjoyed the different types of characters we met in this novel. I thought the world building overall was awesome but thought the world building towards the end was a bit rush. Excited to get my hands on the next one soon!

Re-read Series!! Cinder series!!

So I am starting a new series on blog, series that I would like to attempt to read in 2019! These are series that I have read all the books of but never got a chance to re-read.

unknown

Cinder was one of the first fairy tale retellings that I ever read. I really enjoyed this series and remembered thinking I am going to love scarlet so much but towards the end of the series i felt more connected to characters like winter and cress. I am curious to see if my thoughts and feelings remind the same on my re-read.

I also thought that levenna was a evil villain that I did not want to have any sympathy for. This reminded the same even after reading fairest.

I thought the world building and the mix between science fiction and fairy tale was very strong.

I hope to re-listen to several of these books during this year!

Let me know your thoughts on this series in the comments!
