    I like sweets. You all know this. Ice cream is one of my favorite sweets. I do not take my ice cream lightly. When I get ice cream, you can bet that I'm gonna savor it.

    Well the other day, I was at a restaurant reading Wildcard and I ordered ice cream. It arrived and then it melted. Why? Because I WAS SO IMMERSED IN THIS BOOK THAT I COULDN'T THINK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS.

    Marie did an amazing job writing this conclusion to a fantastic duology. The character development

    Marie did an amazing job writing this conclusion to a fantastic duology. The character development is remarkable, the heartbreaking bits are soul-crushing, the happy bits made me grin like an idiot. There's one specific villain in here who I wanted to kick in the face, and the entire thing was so cleverly plotted. It is a WONDERFUL book and I highly recommend that everyone read it.

    But Marie, you owe me ice cream b/c it's 100% your fault that mine melted before I could eat it.

    THIS WAS SO FRICKEN GOOD! Such a great ending that wrapped everything up so perfectly! While I didn’t read it in one sitting like I did Warcross, I still enjoyed every second of it, and Marie Lu continued to blow my mind all through the second book :)

    2 1/2 stars. Wow, I'm really not sure how to rate this book. I think it was pretty poorly-paced with weak characters, but I also liked some of the exciting twists and turns Lu took.

    .

    . Was she always this bland? I'm not sure. All I know is that she had absolutely no agency or independent thought in

    . This book sees her being used as a pawn by everyone - her motivations seem always tied into what Hideo or the Blackcoats want.

    Emika responds to events as they occur, seemingly without any drive or feelings of her own. As someone who really likes to connect with the narrator or protagonist, it was a little difficult to stay engaged at times.

    There were two things that drove the plot of

    for me and kept the pages turning: 1) The action of the Warcross game itself, and 2) the dynamic between the Phoenix Riders. The first of those is, of course, completely absent in

    , but there's also a disappointing lack of the second. The Phoenix Riders don't feature for a huge chunk of this book, with the focus instead being on Hideo and Zero (and, I guess, Emika, except it feels like she does nothing).

    The Zero aspect of the story is fairly interesting, and I'm glad we got to see what happened to him. In fact, discovering his story is what about 75% of this book consists of.

    . I think these later chapters were supposed to be a concentrated stream of action leading to a dramatic climax, but it feels like it goes on forever, dragging out an ending that already seems inevitable.

    Okay, and I'm sorry to keep reiterating this point, but

    She literally acts as a mouthpiece and a go-between. She witnesses things happening to other characters, and she seems to have very little opinion on some of the morality issues Lu brings up. I swear

    could just as easily have been told by an omniscient narrator and little would change.

    Perhaps my problem with this sequel is that the exciting action and the diverse Phoenix Riders in

    disguised problems I might otherwise have had with it. Once you take those things away, Emika Chen struggles to carry the story.

    CW: Suicide (nothing graphic); drug abuse.
