Review: Isaura

Isaura
Isaura by Ruth Silver
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Olivia has little choice but to head into the dangerous Gravelands, as the new government wrestles with fixing the damage to society. If traveling through outlaw territory isn’t frightening enough, Olivia learns she has exposed her secret and is hunted by those she trusted. In a race against time, her life and those she loves are in jeopardy.

I’ll just say, in short, that I was disappointed in this book. It was the last in the series and I expected much more from this jumble of events packed into a fast-paced dash of a book. Right from the start, I was losing interest with the prose. I said before, in Moirai, that the writing was lacking and not doing justice to the plot and the same thing ails this book as well. The dialogue improved but the story progression was terrible. It was stilted, the events often quite convenient and mostly making no sense. The plot is paced too fast – maybe to keep from getting bored with it, but honestly it just couldn’t hold my attention in the first place. The world-building that I expected from since Aberrant was still not delivered and most of the plot just explains the super-drug as some magic potion. The time-travel, and the looking glass thing just popped in for a brief span without any logical explanation. The heroine, Olivia is just hopping easily from one city to another and many other plot holes go unexplained. What was the motivation of most characters – unexplained. Besides the main characters, others are just cardboard personalities, each interchangeable with the next and unmemorable. Basically, it was a disaster of a finale.

Received an ARC from Lazy Day Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
