“A sizzling, imaginative thriller, where romance and revolution collide, where power and justice duel. It’s exhilarating. Compelling. Action-packed. Unputdownable.” (USA Today)
“Aveyard weaves a compelling new world of action-packed surprises... inventive, character-driven.” (Kirkus)
“A volatile world with a dynamic heroine.” (Booklist)
“Breakneck pace and engaging characters.” (School Library Journal)
“ [Aveyard] sets her audience up for a gaspworthy twist that reconfigures nearly every character’s role and leaves Mare with no one to trust but herself... This blend of fantasy and dystopia will be an unexpected and worthy addition to many genre fans’ reading list.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
“Fascinating world building... Readers will be intrigued by a world that reflects today’s troubling issues concerning ethnic inequality, unfair distribution of wealth, pollution, warfare, political corruption, and the frightening power of the media.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
Victoria Aveyard was born and raised in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, a small town known only for the worst traffic rotary in the continental United States. She moved to Los Angeles to earn a BFA in screenwriting at the University of Southern California, and stayed there despite the lack of seasons. She is currently an author and screenwriter, using her career as an excuse to read too many books and watch too many movies.

Principali recensioni dei clienti
"Many things led to this day, for all of us.
A forgotten son, a vangeful mother, a brother with a long shadow, a strange mutation.
Together, they've written a tragedy."
I can't believe that the first time I DNF this book. Was I sick or what?! It's just AMAZING! The first book in 2017 that I really, really enjoyed aside from a little detail: some scenes are just too similar to the HG.
I'm referring to the trip to the capital and Mare's forced speech, that reminded me immediately of Catching fire. Oh yes, and the Queenstrial was awfully similar to "The Selection". But since the resting parts were so good and the princesses were a bunch of badass hysterical fighters I can "forget" this flaw.
Now just give me some time to collect my thoughts in order to give you the motivations for my rating.
1) The narration
The narrator is a third person one, focused on Mare. Thanks to this, her thoughts are always present and make the story more involving, but at the same time the other characters are not left aside, but they're well analyzed. The style is neat and fluent, a mix of feelings and actions that make reading easy and captivating.
Moreover, the action scenes were really strong, intense and realistic that I was super excited everytime there was one beginning. The final scene in the arena? BRILLIANT.
2) The characters
"He's strong, he's talented, he's powerful - and I'm his shadow. The shadow of the flame."
After this cursed book I swear I'll never fall in love with any character, never again!Ulteriori informazioni ›
