Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles #1) Reviews
Alone. Abandoned. Apart from everyone I loved. All because of one act of trust. One truth. One horrible mistake.
I didn't know much about this one before picking the book up other than dragons. Let me repeat that: DRAGONS. And I am more than pleased with how it turned out. I didn't expect a story filled with politics and imprisonment stemming from a treaty made between islands the day Mira was born.
This moment. Right here. I had my two best friends and my two favorite dragons, and eve...more
This book is about dragons and not going with the flow. So basically, this book is something I will be gushing over for a while.
Mira is basically the face of a treaty of peace between the isles. The treaty states that everyone is equal and no one can own a dragon and so on and so forth. But just like we have seen in our own world today, just because a piece of paper says everyone is equal, doesn’t mean that everyone sees everyone as equal. It actually gets pretty political whic ...more
I don't know, I'm not feeling it. I'm at around 45% into the book, and nothing really has happened?? Mira has been interrogated about dragons, and she's been locked up in a cell and been extremely mistreated, and there's a lot of characters, and my expectations have dwindled massively. I might continue this later or end up calling a DNF. I'm very disappointed right now - I was hoping for a lot more action.
There is a review on my channel where I discuss the book and the little bit of controversy around it: https://youtu.be/X7-nJ8BYg0g
Lots and lots of dragons. I'm not even kidding when I say I'm working on a dragon guide for other nerds who want to know all the things about the dragons in these books.
This is a book that I am writing.
It now has a title. But I'm not going to tell you what it is . . . yet. Soon, though. Soon!
9/28: I saw a piece of the cover -- an important piece -- and I can't express how beautiful the cover is going to be. I can't wait to see the whole thing!
9/30: TITLE REVEAL ON MONDAY.
10/3: And it ...more
This is an utterly dazzling and beautiful book with a richly imagines world, fresh wonderful characters, and a story that didn't let me go from the first page to the last. And can I just say that I desperately want a dragon? Remarkable!
Be prepared that this book has a slow start... it took till about half way through for me to work out what was going on...
BUT ONCE I DID IT WAS GOOD.
I think this is a well thought out book. Loved the magic system, although i feel like it still needs explaining. But thats the point of the story I believe, I dont think we are supposed to understand it till the next book.
Looking forward to more Dragons I hope! AND LESS PRISIONS
