COMMUNITY REVIEWS

A well-written YA dystopian submitted by abenson on June 21, 2016, 7:00pm I really enjoyed this book - I thought Sabaa Tahir wrote a compelling story set in an interesting universe meant to resemble a dystopian-esque ancient Rome. The story features quite a bit of violence which would not be appropriate foryounger readers. I thought the characters and storyline were well developed, but my only complaint is that there was the standard YA love triangle, which I think is overdone/takes away from the meaningful parts of the story. Other than that, an enjoyable and intriguing read I would recommend for older students as well as adults.

really good submitted by moffat2 on June 23, 2016, 2:03pm This was a very enjoyable read. Exciting and something I could not put down.
