Marie Lu is an incredible author and she honestly never fails to amaze me. All of her books are absolutely incredible and this one was no different!

The world-building in this book was amazing, and the complexity of Talin's character was too. The book had so many fantastic tropes in it, including some of my favorites and the writing and story were overall captivating. Talin was a very solid protagonist and I didn't feel like she was lacking in any important aspects. I found her likable and an all together round character. I felt the world-building was good, and it gave the protagonists (and reader) a good enemy to fight. I also loved the side and background characters, I felt they added a lot to the story.

Also the cover. Oh my god, the cover is absolutely stunning it has to be one of my all-time favorite covers I adore it with my entire heart.
