FromNew York Timesbestselling author Amie Kaufman comes an electrifying new series about a brother and sister who must harness their powers and find their place in a sharply divided world.
Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolvesand scorch dragonsare sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.
So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.
In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shapeshifting force of all.
My Brief Thoughts:
I picked up this audiobook on a whim and I loved it! I flew though this book in like three days and I really loved this version of Bruce. Even though this story was a super short I thought it was so well done. I really loved the “trio” of characters and and also the case the bruce had to solve. I love how he we got nods to real “batman” history and loved all the unexpected twists and turns and it had me so engaged. I loved this listening experience so much and would love to see a follow up book to this. This was my first superhero read and I will def be reading more.
My Extended Thoughts:
Characters: I really loved the characters in this book so much especially Bruce. I have like no real background about Batman but his book was super good basic novel about bruce wayne. I was so invested in this novel and all the characters. I really was captured by the lead character and it made me much more invested in learning about the batman world and characters.
Plot: This plot was super fast pace and I was invested from page one. There was so many twists and turns that even I did not see coming. I loved listening to this audiobook and did not want to stop.
Pace: The mystery of this novel made this book so fast pace and gripping. I enjoyed it so much!
MORE!!! This is the first superhero novel I ever picked up and I will def be picking up more as audio. I would love to see more in this world as well. 🙂
