My Review of Initiation (Book 1)

My Review:
 Oh, this is a good book.... even more so than the first, though you can't have one without the other.... The first introduces you to the cast and the second gets you into their lives.
 I had a feeling things would turn out the way they did in the end, and it didn't bother me, I actually was more happy I was right. Usually it doesn't work out that way, but in this book it did. It also built up the suspense for the next book too, which I can't wait to read....
 I do think you could read this book if you haven't read the first, only because it touches base with it and is more of an academic adventure. I do think you should read the first one though as you get a real sense of the characters and their powers.
 A great series for the imagination!


5/5

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
