The Forsaken - Lisa M. Stasse I am not going to lie, at first the cover drew me to read this book and when I read the summary I was like Whoa! That’s interesting! Eh, I finally learned that everything that shines isn't gold. I think the main problem is Stasse's writing style because when I began to read the prologue it didn't feel very convincing. I kept reading but the narration and the dialogues were bland. The summary led me to believe that Alenna was going to be a badass, I was so excited for that… well, she isn’t. I didn't care for any of the characters in it, except maybe David. For moments I thought I wasn't going to finish the book.. The "romance" in this story was one of the things that made me dislike it more, it's so fake, I mean, you can't fall in love with someone you barely know, less in the condition they were in the wheel. Plus the triangle was unnecessary. The only events that I wasn’t expecting were the part when we discover the monk’s identity and the real situation in the island. There is something that is bugging me, though. How could the monk control the minds of the drones when the pills that the UNA gave to them for the same purpose did not work? The story has great potential just needs to be rewritten..
