“We were in this together now. Neither of us were alone. Asunder.” Asunder picks up shortly after the events of Templedark which destroyed dozens of souls and devastated the remaining citizens of Heart.

However, NOT acting could prove much worse (this is a spoiler-y part, albeit a very early one, so I… Read more »

Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Yeah, it’s a cliche, but I started reading Legend this morning, and I couldn’t put it down. This book is a great example of dystopian YA done very well. With two smart, resourceful, and tough main characters, a dystopian world that’s frightening but not too far-fetched, and heavy doses of action and tension, Legend thrills on every page. June and Day are two fifteen year-olds, living in the same geographical area, but worlds apart on society’s spectrum. June is privileged,… Read more »
