The Heir – audiobook

Review:

The Heir - Kiera Cass

 

Audience: Young Adult

 

I could not hold my breath for seven minutes.

I read The Selection series and found it delightful. Granted it had problems, but it was fun. I found this book on my shelf and realized it has been sitting there for a while. I wanted to finish some of the series that I started but never completed, so I decided to start with this one.

 

Two of the things I enjoyed about The Selection were the main character America and her romance with Maxon. And the whole caste system and related prejudice were intriguing. But in The Heir, the main character is irritating and has a terrible personality. Princess Eadlyn is America’s daughter, but she is a spoiled brat who thinks the world revolves around her. It is really difficult to listen to her whine and judge people through most of the book. Other than that, it’s not a bad story. I like Cass’s writing style and the book moves along quickly. The ending actually came faster than I expected and was a total cliffhanger. I should have expected it since I knew there was at least one more book, but I wasn’t thinking.

 

I will not be reading any more of this series. I should have stopped with the third book.

Infinite Sea – audiobook

Review:

The Infinite Sea: The 5th Wave, Book 2 - Ben Yannette, Rick Yancey, Penguin Books Australia Limited, Phoebe Strole

 

Audience: Young Adult

 

The world is a clock winding down.

This was a re-read for me to prepare for reading the final book in the series, The Last Star. I read a recap summary, but I felt like I needed more information.

 

I enjoyed revisiting Cassie, Ben, Evan, Ringer, Nugget, and the rest of the gang. There is a lot of confusion in this series about who the good guys and bad guys are and how exactly the aliens are achieving their destruction of the majority of the human race.

 

This is a fun book with a few unexpected twists and a lot of action, danger, and drama.
