    An awesome new dystopian!

    When I heard about Kristen Simmons’ new book, I was beyond excited. Her books are some of my favourites (although I admit I still have to read Three) and I was so excited to see her latest work. And I’m glad to say that I wasn’t disappointed! The Glass Arrow is definitely a great, intense and thought-provoking dystopia. The Glass Arrow revolves around Aya, and her life in a world where women are captured, traded and treated as property. When she’s captured by a businessman and his hunting party, she has to learn to survive all over again. I honestly loved Aya and how she went against her societal norms. I like that she didn’t just accept the way women were treated, compared to other people in her society, and I liked that she stuck to her guts and opinion. I definitely related to her in that sense, I am so stubborn as well! The world building was a little staggered and was definitely developed through info-dumps but I liked that it was easy to comprehend, compared to other dystopians, and it definitely seemed unique. The romance was also really well-developed. I was a little skeptical at first, since it seemed a little bordering on insta-love, but it definitely worked out and did not seem as much so by the end. The plot was also very fast-paced and intense. Some parts lagged a little, and had very little dialogue compared to description, but I still liked it a lot. I was a little distraught because as soon as I thought everything finally worked out, another twist screwed everything over! Overall, if you’re looking for a thrilling new dystopian that will keep you on your toes and at the edge of your seat, I recommend The Glass Arrow!

    Scary

    I really liked this book. I let it sit around awhile before starting it, but after started, I wondered why I had waited so long. There were a couple of details within the plot that didn’t quite make sense to me. Girl babies were often frowned upon or killed, but the need of girls were in such high demand that they went great lengths to kidnap and buy or sale them. Also, the girls at the auction house had to be virgins or they were disfigured and thrown out as the lowest in society, but many were bought used and recycled (for lack of a better word) back through the house. So some of these dystopian world rules didn’t exactly connect, but the story was so interesting that I was able to overlook these irregularities. From the beginning, the story had me hooked. I couldn’t wait to see what Aya was going to do next in each situation. Also, it was fascinating discovering the classes and types of people.
