A predictable start. The dialogue was witty and fun, & Emelina was an intriguing protagonist, whose actions moved the plot at a good pace. Cas grew on me over time, especially in the second half. The world had a lot of potential for complexity, but somehow remained very straightforward — especially the politics, which was surprising. The romance was a bit forced, I felt, but I didn‘t hate it. We‘ll see how it goes from here! ★★★☆☆.

The plot of this book at first glance doesn't seem very original, but oh my god is it refreshing.
It somehow manages to walk the fine line between comical and downright dark with massive amounts of poise. Consider me a new Tintera fan! 😍😍

"The memory of how he felt when he cared about her was going to be the most painful thing after he began to hate her" (Ruined - Amy Tintera).

I still remember that quote from Ruined, I was such a good read! I got Avenged last week and can't wait to read it, although I want to reread Ruined first so I'll remember the details of the first story!

Omg yes! This is a fucking revenge story! The romance doesn't come off as lazily done but rather shows a lot of growth, learning and communication/forgiveness. I laughed since the main girl tends to enter a room, count her enemies and think of how and how fast she can kill them which was quite refreshing every once and a while. Really excited to purchase the sequel...and the covers are awesome! PS her sister is going to be interesting to watch

It's my turn to work the weekend again. On the plus side it allows to me to catch up on my reading. Epic Reads posted about Ruined on Facebook the other day. I instantly went online and bought it. VERY ACTION PACKED! I loved every min of it! It's FANTASY, ADVENTURE AND ROMANCE! What more could a girl want? 😀

I started this book thinking it was going to be way to much like Snow Like Ashes or Red Queen, with the whole drama of marrying the prince undercover, being part of an almost extinct society, and killing the royalty, but I was pleasantly surprised! It contained just the right amounts of action, romance, and suspense and I demanded the next one. Too bad it isn't out yet! 😫

This book was freaking amazing! I wasn't sure about reading it because the reviews were pretty mixed, but I loved it! It was fun and dark at the same time, and I loved Amy's writing. Not to mention Cas was my absolute favorite and Em was great as well. I also loved the fact that even though Em is Ruined she doesn't have any special powers like the others. I can't wait for book 2!

I quite literally could not stand this book. Every single character was either completely stupid or devoided of personality or both. What a waste of a great premise. It goes to show that even your favourite tropes can let you down.

Another item from my book haul! Already halfway and I am a tad underwhelmed considering its praise... But it is certainly not terrible, so I shall continue, and I expect it to improve as the story develops more!

The story wasn't new and there wasn't much world building. I didn't mind the book but it didn't grip me.

Good action, but there's not a whole lot of characterization or world-building in the first 65 pages. Setting this down, which is such a bummer since I really enjoyed the author's REBOOT series.

Escapismfanatic This may sound lame but something about the cover really puts me off from reading it. Glad my instincts were right.😊 4y
misswendyd @Escapismfanatic You know, I don't love the cover, either. The textured paper and ideas are nice, but the images are somewhat generic. Which...suits the book, hah. 4y

Ugh 😓 I'm at 42% and I still fail to connect with the book no matter how hard I try. I guess there are some books that does that to you no matter how much you love reading and exploring new worlds within pages. Maybe I'll give it another go someday, just not for now.

This is probably one of the fastest paced fantasy books I've ever read. Amy Tintera jumps right into the action immediately within the first chapter. Perfect quick read or gateway to fantasy! It's great for reluctant readers too!

An entertaining read if you're looking for a watered-down fantasy novel light on plot but heavy on romance (PG-13 romance: kisses and touching). Heavy on killing (not too graphic), light on profanity. It was predictable and didn't have any major plot twists. I don't think I will be reading book 2
