“The meek may inherit the earth, but at the moment it belongs to the conceited. Like me.”
It seemed like the perfect, miserable weather to indulge in a quick fix of paranormal YA fiction. With the recent press junket for the movie version of this novel recently wracking up a few column inches, I decided to dive in and give it a go.
This is a speedy read with fantastic pacing. Sure, some of the standard tropes can get a little tired, but there is enough action to distract and entertain.
I couldn't help but draw out similarities with another YA series - Harry Potter. It has muggles, this has mundanes - I think you get my drift.
4 out of 5 a snippet of distraction that entertains.
