Glass Sword – Victoria Aveyard
Young adult, science fiction.
Mare and Cal escape from being executed by his brother Maven who is being puppeteer by his mother. Cal was controlled to kill the King, and this was a set up to ensure Mare would be killed because of her new blood abilities. Mare had learned that no one can be trusted and is cautious with Cal and everyone she encounters. Before the fall, an ally gives Mare a list of people who is just like Mare. She must hunt down the new bloods before Maven finds them and kills them.
Overall, this sequel is amazing. I love that there isn’t romance entangled into the mix. I prefer a revolution uprising without romance involved because the story line can get messy. This focuses in on reality of what Mare must fight for which is equality for all the various types of blood types. Not romance included in this novel’s story line. I enjoyed reading this and waiting to read more from this novel series.
The Woman’s War – Jenna Glass
Science fiction, fertility, magic, spells, women, war, fiction.
A spell by three women was casted and now women can
control their fertility. This spell only allows women choose when they wish to
be pregnant and not by the choice of their partner. This changes the world
dramatically as sudden changes occur. There is a need for an heir to claim the
throne, otherwise, the throne is free for the taking. Fate of countries are in the
hands of women and men are trying to take away their ability to control their
fertility. Everything is at stake.
I loved this book because its different science
fiction I’ve ever came across. A spell that allows the woman control whether or
not she will become pregnant is a brilliant subject to tackle in this world
where men are domineering. This book is slow at first, but it does pick up
momentum as the story progresses. I highly recommend this novel whether one
into science fiction or not. This was an excellent read.
