It’s probably best to jump straight into this, and tell you the reason that I stopped reading. Well, on page 13, “the most beautiful boy I’ve ever seen” showed up. Yeah. Page 13. After that, I knew this book would just be about the romance, like so many YA books are, so I must admit that I didn’t try very hard to get into it.
You see, I was expecting this to be a book driven by tough female leads, and, like I have heard about Code Name Verity, that the relationship between the Night Witches would be the most important part. I wasn’t interested in any guy showing up, especially if he was the most beautiful boy ever. Just, please, shut up.
Well, how as that for the shortest review ever? I think this might be a new record. Basically, don’t promise me a book about badass women, and then throw in a romance that is clearly going to turn into instalove within the first thirty pages.
