Review | Livia Blackburn's ROSEMARKED
I haven't read the Midnight Thief duology. I was expecting to like this based on what I had heard about Livia due to that. But I didn't like Rosemarked that much. This was 50-50 for me.
The start was quite promising what with the healer learning venom business. In short I liked Ziva and her healer journey. But sadly that's about it.
I didn't like the romance, the characters also were somewhat dreary. The world for me was also drab. It is a cruel and saddening world but I wasn't interested.
This was YA but it read like MG. Or seemed MG to me. I felt the characters were more childish/childlike.
That's all I have to say about it. I don't think I'm really into this world or it's characters. Won't be reading the next book that eagerly or I might not at all but that is mostly because I won't have time due to adulthood.
Rating: 3 stars
