I was so disappointed when I read this book! I didn't hate it, it was still good, but in comparison to the others in ember it wasn't nearly as captivating. Ember was truly amazing, in fact it was so good I started reading just about any book I could get my hands on that Tess Williams has written because I enjoyed it that much! Dust was the worst of all of her books I have read. It pains me to say that, because there was potential and she really is a great author. Also, the subject matter in this book didn't really match the rest of the ember series. I am a believer myself so the discussion of God and religion didn't bother me, however there was so much of it and it was so drawn out! Don't get me wrong, Jaden's internal struggles are an important part of the series, but for religion to be such a key part of it. I think it should have been introduced earlier, not so suddenly in such large quantity! It was almost like I was reading a completely different book series! I did think Ikovos's new romantic escapades were nice, but they seemed kind of thrown together. Make me LOVE the love story, Tess is usually so amazing at that! Evelyn's character seemed to go backwards to me. In obsidian she grew so much and became so much stronger, braver, and wiser. She somehow reverted to her clueless old self! Don't get me wrong, she has always been naive, but in a " I just don't understand what your talking about" way, not in an " I am completely oblivious" way. I will probably read book four because I have made it this far in the series and I have enjoyed the rest of her books so much. And there were good points. Cassius was so funny, and it a way he deepened Jaden's character. Also, I still love Jaden and Eve. I Always will! I really loved that the moment Jaden heard Eve sing and really saw her, he was head over heels. That was sweet.
This book... just what? It makes me question if the author went through a traumatic event and decided this story was the was to document her conversion to religion because of it. It was extremely heavy on the Christian religion, the characters disappeared and were swamped. This didn't tell a story as much as lecture. I had to skip, and skip, and skip several pages as the religious rant went on, to find the "story" of the book. As well, there were many more spelling errors, missed letters punctuation etc than her other books. I usually don't mind, but in the context of the radical and stupid turn this book took from the series, the errors added to the sense that this book did not belong.
Not at all what I was expecting, but fantastic non the less. And I LOVED Cassius. He was so full of himself the whole time, and I died laughing! Can't wait till book 4 comes out!
So...um...what? I was super confused with this book. There was so much religion stuff. Where did that come from? I felt like it was a totally different story from the other two books. There was nothing hinting in those books to what happened in the third. It was totally weird. There were some parts I liked but it was just so much bible stuff that it made my brain hurt. I wanted a more action-packed kicking ass book like the other two but I got an endless preaching about god. I'm kinda disappointed with this one but there was parts that made sense to me so that's why this book got 3 stars. This book seemed to revolve more around god than the actual characters of the story. This book totally fell short compared to the first two. I don't know why it ended up this way. Maybe this was what it was intended to be all along or something changed in writing that made it end up like this. I don't know. All I do know is I'm pretty disappointed because I was expecting a book more like the first two, with lots of missions and fighting, but it's actually more like a church service in a book.
this review will take some pondering. for now, it was still hilarious, still tween friendly. evie is still the most adorable airheaded character. she isn't the protagonist in this one though. I need to go back and reread the first one because I don't remember some important stuff.
the first book was so good but it just went downhill from there. the third book was way different than I expected and it let me down
