27 Hours – Tristina Wright (ARC Review)

October 4, 2017

Goodreads synopsis:

33509079.jpgRumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

update feb 11, 2018:

There is nothing I can say to take back the fact that I stood up for this author, that I went to bat for her endlessly and took her side of the story over other sides I was presented with. I can’t take any of that back. All I can do is say that, if I ever made you feel like it wasn’t safe to tell me what she had done, or how her actions made you feel, I am so, so genuinely sorry. My heart is breaking today for anyone she has hurt, and I will certainly not be supporting her work in the future. I’m taking down my review because anything positive I had to say about her supposed attempts at diversity and activism have been refuted by her actions.

    Simply reading about the characters had me going: GIMMEH. I can’t imagine there being a lot of books out there with such a broad spectrum of characters as the main cast. Adding this to my TBR – although the comments on the writing did put me off a bit, but I feel like it’s still worth reading anyway. 😀

      Right?! That’s what made me request the ARC to begin with – that diversity! ❤ It is DEFINITELY still worth a read, it just wasn’t quite perfect, but I have the utmost confidence that book 2 will be a 5-star read for me – practice makes perfect and all that. 😂

        That’s true! Imagine the books this author can write as soon as THE writing voice has been found? They always have some growing to do – as does everybody when it comes to anything at all really. xD

          Exactly! 😀 I would always rather see a debut with unpolished writing and a great plot than the other way around, because one of these things is much easier to improve upon than the other, IMO!

            Completely true! Having the skill to put together a good plot is just.. well.. necessary if you want to write a book. I can’t even imagine it being easy to have to learn doing that?
