I hated this boy with a burning passion. While other girls sew dresses, host dinner parties, and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword.
But the Commander has something up his sleeve, no matter how hard Rachel and her deemed Protector Logan try he always seems one step ahead. The boy and girl are always putting eachother down. Overall, this story just lacked a lot. Their romance is very sweet, and like I said, no insta-love, but instead a slow and satisfying build-up.
These characters actually learn from their mistakes and do not keep repeating them. Let me start again. Logan calculates things, makes plans. Instead, apparently Redwine thinks emotions are best conveyed and measured by the number of synonyms of and similes for sad she can cram into a chapter. The man’s a genius and a humble one too. You, as the reader, get to watch Rachel shatter in a million pieces over and over and over again then try to pick them up and move on.

I can tell Logan apart when he’s talking about logic, science, or plans, but gy he’s narrating, talking about the plot, his voice, sounds the same as Rachel.
The me from 3 years ago remembered it as awesome and heart-stopping and jaw-dropping and whatnot, but I suppose I was a tad too easily impressed at the time.
I also enjoyed how his lust consumed his logical reasoning and was rather amused at how Rachel affected him as a man. Rachel the main character is the epitome of this over blown writing style. He is the reason for so much suffering within the walls and why he needs to be brought down. Luckily, the premise still kept me engaged.
