    Now, I ve said this before, but this series has a very odd and unusual style of narration, the tone, if you would It s dystopia, the first two w

    here s the thing.The world and the plot of this series are fantasticBut the characters break my heart and not in the way you want them to.The absolute character assassination of Hester Shaw really ruins this series for me In the first book and for most of the second book you can understand Hester, she s still not particularly likeable for the people around her, but the things she says and does make sense given her life In Predator

    I don t know how it s possible but this series is really growing on me, and the books keep improving as the series goes on Usually I find books about the children of main characters insufferably annoying, but this one surprised me And true to the form of the past books, so did the characters I don t want to spoil anyone s read but I have to say that my favorite thing about this author and this series is that the characters often do things I
