When I saw that it was described as Harry Potter meets Hunger Games I knew I had to read it. And it lived up to all expectations.
It’s got everything from a unique magic system, a high-stakes plot, and gruesome history. It’s told from multiple POVs but it doesn’t drag the plot down. In fact I love how we see a bit of everyone’s reasoning behind their behavior.
There isn’t too much true dark villains, but you do get angsty teens trying to live up to their families expectations who are morally grey. I have a feeling though we will get more villainy come the next book.
Ps. I am team Alistair and none of you can convince me otherwise
