So I heard about this book a long time ago and I was really interested. I mean, look at the cover and after reading the summary, I just had to read it. I also read so many good reviews about it and wanted to judge for myself if it was good. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t. To be honest I didn’t even finish it because I just couldn’t anymore. So for the people who loved this book, I’m sorry but I just didn’t like it.
This review does not contain any spoilers!
Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.
Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.
So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.
Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.
Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?
I read like 126 pages of this but I can’t continue. I am so sorry to everyone who liked it but I didn’t. I was very disappointed because everyone was telling me how awesome it was and all, but I couldn’t continue.
First of all, let me say that the cover is beautiful and that it what got me interested in the book in the first place. Then, I read the synopsis and was really intrigued by it. So I decided to read it and give it a try. God, I regret it.
I am not interested in the characters what so ever. And that is when you know that you don’t like a book. I don’t care what happens next and I just can’t read the book anymore.
Aza doesn’t like that people talk to her about death but she thinks about it all the time! Do you see where I’m going here? She has to talk about her situation about the people she cares about, not avoid it. Because you can avoid something for however long you want but you can never escape it. I really didn’t like reading through her perspective.
The only character I liked was Jason. Although I didn’t like Aza and Jason together, I liked him as an individual. I don’t know why, he had that sense of safety surrounding him and felt drawn towards him more and more.
Thanks for reading and sorry if I was a little bit harsh, I was just expressing my feelings.
