Missing several pages!

I was really looking forward to this book, but I couldn't read it. The copy I was sent was missing several pages. I am very disappointed.

A love square.

Interesting and complex characters and a unique plot and magic system. Can’t wait to read more.

Love it!!

The very first time I read this was in High school. I couldn’t put it down because it was so overwhelming and exciting. (It was in very good condition.)

Book Condition

I’ve purchased second hand books a lot because my kids love physical books and not tablets. This one was listed in acceptable condition but definitely was not. The paperback cover was completely wrinkled and reflattened, the first page was missing a torn section, and the cover binding was torn from the pages.

Read it a million times over

I love this book and I will read it a million times over! It truly is one of the best books I have read.


Ordered the book in good condition. It came it over half the pages severely bent. Water damage. I paid $18 expecting good condition not horrible condition.


If you love young adult fantasy, you will be obsessed with this book. The plot line is so detailed and thrilling. The characters are written so well that you can love them or love to hate them. I took a chance on reading this book based off the description, and now I’m reading the entire series.

Red Queen

This book so amazing, honestly better than I expected. There was a lot of action and twist and turns that I did not expect! 10/10.

Action Packed

I and 3 quarters of the way through the book, and its hard for me to put it down! I work full-time, plus I am a wife and a mother. I do not have a lot of free time, but when I do, I enjoy a good action packed series that is gripping all the way through. This book has a lot of action and romance, the best of both worlds. Its a pretty quick read, I'm excited to finish it, and buy the second book in the series. :)

New favorite

Absolutely loved this book and it came in good time and good condition!


This book was absolutely incredible I’ve read it like three times and each time you read it you pick up something new. And the plot twists and cliffhanger are amazing. This is one of my all time favorite books.


The story and book itself was really good, however the book came to me in pretty bad condition. There were stains and bent pages.

the best series

this is one of the few series i wish i could read again for the first time. the authors way with cliffhangers is unreal. definitely would have the next book ready when you finish it.

Finished this in 2 sittings!

One of the best books I've read for awhile! Absolutely captivating from the 1st page to the last, I cant wait to ready the rest of the series.

Couldn’t put it down.

It’s a great distopian story. I definitely think that every young girl should read to understand the great power that lays within her.

Favorite Book

I loved this book so much. The characters and story just pulled me in and I couldn't put the book down. I had to stop myself from reading it in one day! I had always wanted to read it and once I saw it on here I had to get it. Highly, highly recommend this book to anyone.


I could not put this book down and read it in one day. The characters and emotions feel so real. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. The twist was heartbreaking and you never see it coming.

This has quickly become my favorite series!

I saw it in passing a while ago and the cover just caught my attention. When I finally decided to give it a shot, I didn't think I would love it as much as I do. The characters and the story are pretty relatable while the twists keep you wanting more. Definitely give this a try if you want something similar to The Hunger Games!

Loved it!

One of the best books I've ever read. My mother and my boyfriend love this book so much! We all recommend this to anyone who likes young adult fantasy books.


Honestly it was amazing, with so many unexpected plot twists and some awesome action scenes :D (definitely recommend this and Glass Sword - the sequel)
