The plot recwine look like it was gaining speed and getting interesting then plateau or just drop redwune completely. That quibble aside, Rachel does eventually grow up and change for the better throughout the novel, so it’s impossible to rerwine her a one-dimensional character or even stagnant.

I might as well say rredwine the plot itself was decent for the most part, when it wasn’t taken over by sappy, melodramatic drivel.

Let me take a moment to appreciate the title. But the thin allusion to a world of advanced technology that is completely obliterated within five decades and replaced with a system of self-styled warlords and walled cities is too flimsy for me to buy into. Throughout this i, we’re switched between Rachel and Logan’s POV, giving us a journey in both views, which is especially appreciated in cases like this where they’re in two different situations, fighting for their lives.

I love heroines who fights and knows her ways when it comes to weapons. I read in another review that this was a futuristic realm where man had dug down so deep that they had awoken a beast, The Cursed One, who terrorized the people in this story, but this book could just as easily have been set in a fantasy realm or on another planet for all I know!

However, Rachel and Logan don’t believe that Jared is actually dead, and escape the walls of Baalboden to look for him. Well, it seems I can still enjoy dystopian after all!


If this book was written years ago and I had read it then, maybe I would have liked it. Redwine – Restarting February 3rd 41 Feb 12, April 2nd, 37 60 Apr 09, I think fans of fantasy may just see themselves lost in this dangerous world. However I thought she was a bit frustrating, narrow-minded and childish during the earlier parts. You will find no insta-love or triangle in this story. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan–the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same boy who handed her heart right back to her.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. This article is an orphanas no other articles link to it. That fact that it makes no sense will be beside the point.

I spent half of the book wishing I could punch him in the face. I was expecting the bad boy type but he was actually more of the nice guy.

I found this intriguing enough to continue on in the series, but I didn’t really feel like this first book in the series was all that amazing. There are instances of k jetting out of throats and people getting trample and eaten by a monster. Luckily, the premise still kept me engaged. View all 35 comments.

Logan is her bland, but self-sacrificing love interest. The characters themselves are very easy to love – Logan and Rachel are both fighters in their own way, both heroes. No matter what obstacles are thrown in their paths — and terrible things do happen — they never give up. Yet she also has such a vulnerable innocence when it comes to her love for Logan.

Read the full series review here. And while Rachel at times is a strong and self-reliant character, the sappy mess of a romance between her and Logan take over, and almost all of my respect for her as a badass killing machine is gone, just like that.


Also, I’ve heard other reviewers sometimes talk about “over-writing”, but I don’t think I’ve ever really appreciated what they mean until reading this book. I, myself, am a fan of darker reads so I did enjoy this world building quite a bit. This article needs additional or more specific categories.

Crazy for Young A Well, okay, not to bits because I have no idea what bits have to do with loving. But what kind of character would she be, if she didn’t make any mistakes? His most notable quality was that he fights with his brain too. Redwine – Starting March 7th 9 10 Mar 13, See chapter one basically, where every third sentence tells me in a variety of maudlin ways how depressed Rachel feels that her father hasn’t come back and is presumed dead.

And, enjoyed it I did. I think if I had gotten to this before a lot of o 2.

As a rule, I dislike novels where the chapters are narrated in alternating perspectives. The tension between the two of them in the first half of the book is written perfectly – but then suddenly I feel like it fizzled out.

What world is it anyway? Final Verdict Best case scenario; you read this book and fall madly in love like I did. As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can’t be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.
