Ash Princess (Ash Princess Trilogy #1)Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A book captivating enough to make me ignore the fact that I hate a lot of its ideas.

This book is written well enough so that I couldn’t stop turning pages, even though after every chapter I kept thinking “torture, intrigues, love triangles, spies, and disgusting people who get off humiliating others? I like none of those things and don’t really want to be reading about them… especially now”. In fact I actually had to skip through some of the more unpleasant parts closer to the end.
And yet, I think this is one of the better YA books out there, just from the way it’s written, especially for people who don’t mind the above mentioned.

I do sincerely hope, thought, that the second book will contain less of the themes I hate to read through, and more of new original ideas and good writing. Though I’ll probably buy it regardless, since I’m interested to see where the story will go.
