Everless

Number of pages: 368

Number of times read (including the time before this review): 1

Rating (out of five stars): 3

This review has been a long time coming, but I really don’t have too much to say. Everless is pretty much your standard YA fantasy. It was relatively well done, but it wasn’t anything special. I actually really think this would be a good book for someone new to YA fantasy.

The world-building was well done in the way that I couldn’t find any fault with it. However, there were some major “info-dumps” in the beginning, which caused the story to brag a bit.

I also just didn’t find Everless all that engaging. It had an interesting concept with time being used as currency, and it was a relatively well-written book, but it just didn’t capture my attention. I can see where others would enjoy it, but Everless was not the book for me.

Overall, Everless had an interesting concept, but failed to capture my attention, earning it 3 stars out of 5.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Number of pages: 384

Number of times read (including the time before this review): 1

Rating (out of five stars): 3

I am not a superhero person. I have seen a total of 3 marvel movies (The Avengers, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther) and 1 DC movie (Wonder Woman). In fact, I would probably give the Wonder Woman movie the same star rating I’m giving this book. So why did I read it? Well, I was so in love with Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom last year that I had to read anything Leigh Bardugo has written. On top of Wonder Woman: Warbringer, I also own Shadow and Bone, and Language of Thorns, which I pre-ordered last year and haven’t read.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer was a well-written book, but it just lacked something. Maybe it was action, because there was a section of the last 60 pages that had me invested, but my investment in the story left by the time the book ended.

From what I’ve seen so far, I think Leign Bardugo really does her best work with morally grey characters, but Diana is just so pure and moral. Because she is so pure and moral, I found her really boring. Like I’m a person who sticks really tightly to their moral values, but there just wasn’t much to interest me in her character. I had the same problem with Alia. She just wasn’t a very interesting character, and it’s no fun to read from the perspective of 2 really uninteresting characters. My dad (who knows far more about superheroes than I do) actually says that’s the problem with DC vs Marvel. With Marvel you have all of these complex characters, but with DC you have these characters that are just good.

Overall, Wonder Woman: Warbringer was well-written, but I just wasn’t invested in the story and characters, earning it 3 stars out of 5.

Have you read either of these books? Let me know your thoughts on them in the comments.

  1. I agree with your thoughts on Everless! I found the concept so interesting but I found the actual book a bit underwhelming. I loved WW: Warbringer! I’m not a DC fan but I really enjoyed the book and I thought the movie was really good too!
