This book had really great reviews. And of course I went for it. I really expected too much from this book and I was disappointed. I was sort of so so through this book. In through half the book I felt I should just DNF it on my goodreads because I was just bored. The MC was good but I expected more from a badass like her. The only character I loved throughout was Sister Apple (weird right?) I really don't know if I will be continuing this series though it shows great promise. 2.5 stars.
Publisher- Harper Voyager books Length- 500 My views- After a very long time,I have developed a huge respect and love for a book. Red Sister, the first book of Mark Lawrence's Book of Ancestor Trilogy. The protagonist Nona Grey, is bought to convent of Sweet Mercy to become a killer. This coming of age fantasy is mostly about battles focusing mainly on the convent. Mostly all the characters are women. Every character is written with ease and very clear with their thoughts and ideas. The book is full of drama and action, however the middle portion of about fifty pages, i found them slow. Otherwise the pace was good. Nona's character was the most beautiful, full of curiosity and an urge to make new friends, live life to the fullest. Nona belonged to the Red Class i.e an age group of 9-12 years. Also, Red sisters were warriors those are in armed-unarmed combat. A geeat emphasis is put on friendship, failures, Believing in good and bad, making the book meaningful and different. Eagerly waiting to read The grey sister.
