Kick-Ass Girls? Yes Please!

Avenged by Amy Tintera

4/5 stars

I don’t know where Amy Tintera has been all my life with her fricken amazing female protagonists. I LOVE them. I love all her characters, but the female characters she creates I think really show the strength and power of girls without losing the vulnerability they need to seem real.

I have reviewed the first book of this series here, and another series by Tintera here.

Reasons I LOVED this book:

  1. Em and Cas were once again so sweet and real and I loved them so freaking much. I had my figurative pom-poms waving while I cheered them on during the book.
  2. There are more points of view in this book, and I thought it might get too confusing but it just added to the depth and complexity of this book.
  3. THE POLITICS. Royal fantasy politics are literally the only politics I care about, and Tintera knows how to make them so interesting. There are no right decisions and I love how characters are tested to do what they think is best, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
  4. There are some really good themes within the book that I think make the book that much more relatable. Themes such as family, love, friendship, prejudice, parents’ sins, revenge, greed, and so much more!

Overall I loved the sequel just as much as I loved the first one! I am so ready for the next book!

Have you read this book? What did you think?

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a LONG time. I’m starting college and it is A LOT of work. I just started reading for pleasure again so hopefully, I’ll be able to post more soon!
