Larson × 9 download Dark Breaks the Dawn review ã E-book, or Kindle E-pub On her eighteenth birthday Princess Evelayn of Eadrolan the Light Kingdom can finally access the full range of her magical powers The light looks brighter the air is sharper and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless. 25 stars I decided to round up after some careful consideration as I was looking through my reviews today Update May 26 Welllllll I rarely write reviews especially ones with 3 or less stars and thorough ones too But since I received an ARC that is what I will do sighs What can I say Dark Breaks the Dawn was one of my most anticipated books of 2017 but unfortunately it was a disappointment At least for me And the sad thing is I love the author very much she is such a nice woman and I really wanted to like her book as well This book had such a good potential nice cover intriguing premise you get it It promised me POLITICAL INTRIGUE and I AM MAD THAT I DID NOT GET IT Really this book had some major issues that I just couldn t ignore thus this 2 star rating Let s start with what was good I mean I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 right So at least there s gotta be something good about this book uh wait To be honest I really can t say There wasn t an element that really stood out to me Maybe it was a bit of the cool magic system where once one reaches the age of eighteen they would come into their full power or how only the royals of the kingdoms had the full sets of powers But in all honesty here s what I really liked1 The skin colors range from blue to white to red anything2 Cool place names 3 Cool setting4 The powers the characters possessed light and dark think Alina and Darkling and some elemental too The explaination was well managed Kudos to Larson I didn t hate it outright so yeah Okay Though this may seem small I d like to point out a point that troubled me the villains are black the whole family and of course our protagonist is white and blonde haired WHYYY Why make the villains POC Characters of color do not need shit on them any The villains seem to be the epitome of evilness OMG THEY ARE SOOOOOO EVIL and are on their man periods every day all day having mood swings and killing people This fact is seemed to be made egregious by the fact that the people in this kingdom could have the skin colour of the rainbow blue green snow white you name it And isn t it weird that the ONLY good guy from the Dark Drailon side is the ONLY Dark Driolin who has WHITE skin So yeah I wasn t happy about that since it s 2017 and POC have been facing a troubling time and this isn t very healthy So here s my first problem then there is the main character Now here s what Larson the author told you her name is Evelayn She is the heir of the Light Kingdom The future ueen She will be the future conduit of the power of light And she is the only one who can shape shift Now here s what Larson didn t tell you SHE S SUPER AWESOME BEAUTIFUL GRACEFUL POWERFUL REGAL etc etc X100000 It might ve just been me but I HATE Mary sues and perfect charactersUsually I can excuse the author telling us once or twice of the protagonists awesomeness but dude the number of times this was mention was O V E R W H E L M I N G Not only was she mentioned to be ba ding ba dazzling beautiful by her love interest by her best friend and by the villains too Which brings me to another point SO MANY POVs They were pretty redundant and I didn t see the point to it but oh well That problem too big But I digress Okay Fine She s AMAZINGGGG I can tell myself to ignore that to skim over those parts until I find out this Evelayn girl is a brat And arrogant too Yeah That s a nope from me My second problem was the romance Gods It made me cringe so bad Yes he was a nice guy kind guy gorgeous guy mentioning to be smelling of citrus and bergamot or some lemony shit honestly I heard you the first time I thought he was too good to be true First you get a couple of chapters of instal love then THERE WAS SO MUCH KISSING It was so cheesy and I couldn t help roll my eyes everytime there was a scene of Evelayn with her love interest But honestly

Bain wants control of both kingdoms and his plan will fling Evelayn onto the throne much sooner than she expect. 35 starsReview posted on The Eater of Books blogDark Breaks the Dawn by Sara B LarsonBook One of an untitled duologyPublisher Scholastic PressPublication Date May 30 2017Rating 3 starsSource ARC sent by a fellow bloggerSummary from GoodreadsOn her eighteenth birthday Princess Evelayn of Eadrolan the Light Kingdom can finally access the full range of her magical powers The light looks brighter the air is sharper and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless But while her mother the ueen remains busy at the war front in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon the corrupt king is plotting King Bain wants control of both kingdoms and his plan will fling Evelayn into the throne much sooner than she expected In order to defeat Bain and his sons Evelayn will uickly have to come into her ability to shapeshift and rely on the alluring Lord Tanvir But not everyone is what they seem and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price In the first book of a remarkable duology Sara B Larson sets the stage for her reimagining of Swan Lake a lush romance packed with betrayal intrigue magic and adventureWhat I LikedI didn t hate this book but I didn t love it Words that everyone hates to hear because they don t really mean a whole lot Was this book really good until the ending Was it a mix of positives and negatives Was there one or two big things that threw everything off In this case there were positives and negatives And I suppose the ending was pretty terrible cruel though it s so dramatic and ghastly and it leaves room for so much to happen in book twoI ve read Larson s debut trilogy Defy Ignite and Endure and I enjoyed the series I have been pretty excited about this new book of Larson s for uite some time I don t know much about Swan Lake but I didn t care about that because the book sounded great and I d had good experiences with Larson s books in the past This book while fairly intriguing was not Larson s strongestPrincess Evelayn has just turned eighteen and gained full access to her power She is thrust into ascending the Light throne when her mother is killed in battle fighting King Bain of the Dark Kingdom Evelayn manages to keep control of the Light but she must uickly come up with a plan to defeat King Bain and his sons But Evelayn is under a lot of pressure especially to hone her abilities and to shapeshift With the help of her trusted General her best friend and Lord Tanvir Evelayn sets out to defeat her Dark enemy and restore balance with his heir or die in the processIt took a little while for the story to grow on me and Evelayn as well The story moves at a very slow pace initially and I can t say I was all that interested I think things started to pick up for me when Evelayn and Tanvir s relationship started to pick up I ll get to that Anyway the story starts and follows Evelayn s ascent to the throne and how she handles the pressure It s so much pressure to be thrust onto the throne without being able to grieve to be thrown into the middle of a war to be expected to be strong and without fear or weakness to be expected to bind to a male and produce an heir So yeah the story wasn t interesting at first but then it really began to shape up with all of Evelayn s duties and worries and plansEvelayn seemed distant and cold to me at first and I didn t really like her But then I started to understand her better She takes on an enormous amount of pressure and the author makes perfectly transparent how much Evelayn struggles with it all But Evelayn becomes a much stronger commanding leader as the story goes onThis book is written in third person and there are multiple POVs We read from Evelayn s Tanvir s Ceren s and even Lorcan s the heir of the Dark Kingdomson of King Bain Evelayn s POV dominated but Tanvir s was sprinkled throughout and Ceren s Evelayn s best friend Lorcan s POV was the most boring Lorcan has no affection or pity for the Light Kingdom but he also hates his father Lorcan is cold and sly and an interesting but merciless villain of the storyI adored Tanvir He s just so good and kind and noble and sweet Don t get me wrong he is also fiercely protective and war hardened He s the High Lord of a set of lands but he is also a soldier and and very good with his power and his skills in fighting and battle Tanvir almost seemed to be too good to be true with his kindness and gentleness with Evelayn but I rolled with it I like him too much and it s not hard to see whyThe romance is sweet At first I thought it developed too uickly but weeks pass before things really progresses Time moves uickly in this novel but we don t get to see each and every day Tanvir and Evelayn are a great couple and very good for each other I like that Evelayn kept uestioning why Tanvir wanted her and I like how persistent and yet respectful Tanvir was While this isn t a favorite romance of mine it is a cute and shippable one I also liked Ceren s budding romance with the son of an important lord So cuteThe ending is pretty cruel and I don t love it so I won t really talk about it But it s a cliffhanger So I may read book two especially since this is only a duology series What I Did Not LikeThere are a bunch of things that I didn t really enjoy about this book I ve already mentioned that the pacing of the story is slow The beginning is dreadfully boring You know it s bad when you don t even care that an important character just died Evelayn s mother I really only started to get interested when Evelayn s feelings for Tanvir start to progress This story is kind of cliche The girl magically comes into her powers when she turns eighteen There is a Light Kingdom and a Dark Kingdom ie some kind of balance They are at war There is always a war The King of the Dark Kingdom is an evil caricature Honestly this book is full of cliches and they weren t necessarily welcome ones I didn t mind but I also didn t like themI m also very confused about the species of these people They aren t human they are Dra olon and I have no idea what that means It would appear that some of them have blue skin and lavender hair and strange colored features I m not really sure I couldn t get a handle on the physical aspects of the Dra olon or anything about them really They are magical immortal and there is a balance of them That s about it I m very confused about what they actually are though Honestly the world building in general is a little confusing for me or just completely absent It seems like a typical cliche YA fantasy world and yet I really couldn t get a good grasp of the world There were so many strange things that seemed out of place Maybe I m missing somethingI m not all that convinced that there won t be a love triangle I love Evelayn and Tanvir and I ship them so hard and there is no hint of a love triangle in this book But because Lorcan and his brother Lothar also have POVs in this book in addition to Evelayn and Tanvir and Ceren too not that she is part of this I m a little nervous Lorcan seems like an off his rocker kind of villain but Lothar I could see the author somehow working Lothar into Evelayn s path They have never met and she has never seen him before but I just have this feeling You know I want to write off Lorcan altogether but somehow Lothar he has too much pity and sympathy for Evelayn Despite not knowing her and her never having seen him before I m just not convinced I don t know thoughThe ending How cruel Will it stick I highly doubt it on several aspects but how knows the author has blown the story wide open which is great if you re the author but not great if you re the reader I am not a fan of the ending but I do respect the author for going for such a risky endingWould I Recommend ItI can t say I fully recommend this book even if you are a YA fantasy fan It s an interesting concept a Swan Lake inspired fantasy tale about a girl who has loved swans all her life and has taken on the difficult task of ruling the Light Kingdom This book wasn t totally impressive though and it wasn t always fun to read sometimes I was bored or just didn t care I d either wait until the second book publishes since this is part of a duology or skip the series altogether While I enjoyed some aspects of the story a lot I can t say that this is a new favorite or a life changing storyRating35 stars rounded down to 3 stars It s an okay book but not great and certainly not worth gushing over I really wish I was gushing over the book because I was very prepared to be doing so but ultimately I m a little disappointed I think I will still read the conclusion though التفسير
