Bishop is instantly endearing, even more so as the plot develops. Ivy was immature at times, but like-able all the same. Her sister and father are despicable human-beings who manipulate Ivy and try to turn her into a pawn in their political game. I hated both of them with a passion.
I was conflicted by events at the end - how Ivy could believe her actions were the only way to save Bishop was beyond me. However, she is only 16 and I understand that she felt trapped.
I enjoyed Amy's writing style and the book flowed smoothly.
I can't wait to see how this progresses in the next book. Well worth a read.
We follow our main character, Ivy who is the daughter of the losing side particular the granddaughter of the man who actually started the war between the two families. As well as Bishop, who is the president son. And not surprising both of them have been selected to get married. The plot becomes more intense as Ivy mission is to actually kill Bishop, so her family can regime the power that they have lost.
Ivy is a strong, wonderful character. You can actually see her constant battle she goes through, trying to please her family, and be the person they want her to be. Whereas at the same trying to discover herself and questioning were her loyalties actually lies. I really liked her character development, from the beginning of the book toward the end. Reading from her perspective was very refreshing and engaging.
The relationship between Bishop and Ivy in this book was really believable, although the concept may seem like a scenario were insta-love may occur. However, in this case it was written really well. I liked how Amy did not rush the relationship, but did it in a slow realistic pace.
The only issue I had with this book, was the world building. Although we had an ‘idea’ on how the war effected the United State, however, we do not have a full picture on what it’s actually like.
Overall, I would recommend this book to everyone, especially if you love dystopian. Although I’m not a huge fan of dystopian books, I’m still glad I gave this a chance.
