The Pledge

The Pledge - Kimberly Derting Once I started reading The Pledge, I couldn't stop! I didn't think that I would like this book as much as I did, because something about the description of the language barrier in the blurb didn't connect with me, but once I started reading Charlie's story, I fell in love with her character and had to know more. Derting is a master of characters, I was suspicious yet charmed by Max, fiercely wanting to protect Angelina, and not only that, she is great at giving only the information you need in that moment, and not a smidge more to keep me asking questions, being surprised, and needing to know more. The world building and the pacing was great, and this makes me think that I have really missed something by not reading The Body Finder. There were so many things that I wasn't expecting that effected the storyline and it's a pleasant surprised to be completely blindsided by things like that when I can sometimes sniff a dystopia "twist" a mile away. If you like fantasy or dystopias, then I recommend to give The Pledge a chance, you might fall in love like I did. review from Blkosiner's Book Blog: http://blkosiner.blogspot.com
