DNF: Renegades
Renegades - Marissa Meyer

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Calling it quits on this one. It's been several months since I last picked it up, I read a few pages and am just not interested. Superheroes are not my favourite thing, but it's an author I love and I have enjoyed superhero themed books before and this one is all original characters. So it sounded like something I would enjoy. Heroes vs villains and a POV from each, with the main POV seeming to be from the girl who's on the bad guys team. With a dangerous power and someone no one seems to know much about.

 

There's a little bit of world building but no real character introductions. There's a list various superheroes before the story starts - names, powers, aliases and what team they're on. So when the story starts going you're supposed to know who they all are.

 

Personally I never bother with character lists when they're at the front of books. I want to be  introduced to who the main people are as the plot progresses - not thrown in at the deep end. So having to go back to the list and flip through even after reading it thoroughly a few times, it was still really  confusing and annoying. 

I wasn't connecting with the characters and the thought of picking this one up again became less and less appealing especially with it being quite a long novel. So time to call it quits.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Pan Macmillan for approving my request to view the title.

Kings Rising (Captive Prince #3) - C.S. Pacat

    

At Last I finished the Captive Prince Series.

 

Even though I was disappointed with book one it got better with book two and three, Laurent and Damen were likeable and the story was a lovely read with interesting plotlines.

 

Overall this series was a nice read and I am glad I read it, I hoped that it would be a great read for me too from everyone else review but I guess at the end everyone has their own opinion and it is a matter of it's me not you.

Prince's Gambit (Captive Prince #2) - C.S. Pacat

                

This book was much better than the first one and I started to see what everyone is talking about.

 

For the first few chapters I was dragging myself from chapter to chapter just to finish this book and get on with it, but as I got more into the story it started to get better and I finally felt something a connection between the Mcs at last, it wasn't palpable but it was there and as the story grew it grew with it and I even started to like laurent a little more.

 

The writing was better in this one also, it was deeper and more informative, and this time I am actually looking forward to read the last book.

Captive Prince Volume One - C.S. Pacat

     

At last I delve into the world of Damen and Laurent, I bought these books as soon as they came out and has been setting in my e-reader for a while now but O never got around to reading them.

 

According to the summary of this book and everyone's review I thought I am going to love this but sadly I was mistaken.

 

This book was a disappointment to me, there was absolutely no connection between the Mcs, and there was too many secondary characters that added an annoying mystery to the book, the writing wasn't bad but I didn't like it either at times I felt lost.

 

However I kinda liked Damen a little which made me continue with the book and curious to know what is going to happen next.

 

I will read the rest of the series and hopefully the other books will be better and I will find what everybody is talking about.
