[The Glass Arrow] EBOOK/EPUB

Chinas New Red Guards rVe Aya The Glass Arrow also had a fantastic love interest Kiran was everything that I look for in a YA book boyfriend kind self less and just plain loveable And guess what He managed to make me fall in love with him without uttering a word Kiran formed part of a population known as Drivers who were mute Kristen didn t need to make use of words to make me fall for this character of hers just his actions were sufficientYou may think that youe over dystopia because every other book sounds the same these days but trust me when I say that you want this book It s nothing like the typical dystopia There s no The Colts Baltimore rebellion against tyrannical leaders The Glass Arrow is just the story of a girl fighting to escape and wanting to get back with her family The plot was action packed and had my heartacing non stop The notion of the constant danger that Aya was in would give me the shivers The world building in The Glass Arrow was also just outstanding Kristen Simmons created a scary society in an intelligent thoughtful and believable way It s a world where women are auctioned off to breed boys It s utterly frightening how complacent some of the girls are but it s also very English Chinese Pin Yin Bible / The Old Testament New Testament / Chinese (Simplified Chinese Characters Union Version With New Punctuation) Bible With Hanyu Pinyin (Romanisation Of Mandarin Chinese) / Thumb Index / Chines Learners / Kjv realistic in my opinion With The Glass Arrow the author tackled many themeselating to feminism and she does a fantastic job at it Perhaps my favorite part of The Glass Arrow besides the characters has to be the Gentlemen of the Road romance What a genuinely touchingelationship Aya and Kiran had It started off with a friendship which eventually blossomed into I loved every minute of this slow and tender Dramacontemporary romance and I shipped these two pretty hard YA needsomances that are as healthy as the one that Aya and Kiran had They were supportive of each other but they allow each other to flourish as individuals as well It was very beautifully doneYou may be sick of YA dystopia books but if you miss out on The Glass Arrow you Cannibalism re going to miss out an exceptional book with courageous characters fantastic storytelling and a world that will leave you breathless Buy this book everyone The world is not ending Nobody is special Nobody has a special gift There s no insta love THERE S NO LOVE TRIANGLE Is it possible YES PEOPLE IT IS And I have found it I have found The Book The Glass Arrow is utterly captivating Since Kristen has a very special Guest Post for us I m gonna keep thiseview a short one So this is what I ll tell you Simmons writing is strong She made a very terrifying world and yet you can t help but be enthralled Every character in here is well developed The heroine Aya is a kickass She s sassy and strong willed And Kiran how do I express my love for Kiran He s adorable and gorgeous You will feel the emotions of every character Gender and Education rolls off in every page that s why you lleally be invested to this story The world building is perfection and the plot was well thought and it was executed very well I love how Aya s story progresses Aya had a lot of inner monologue that s why the Francisco de Osuna reader will thoroughly witnessed how Aya develops into a much stronger character The book is into the action than intoomance which isn t a bad thing in here because first Aya is young She s too young for any sexiness and hotness Second Kiran and Aya s friendship is enough I m already swooning as long as they Leaving without Losing re both together Third its noteally the point of the book My last good point is that The Glass Arrow will Before Auschwitz really appeal to any femaleeader Don t get me wrong its perfect for everybody But what I m saying is that this book is soooo into feminism It showed through Aya s actions I had like a week to mull over everything that happen in the book and I Communities of Learned Experience realized that in a way everything in the book acts like a symbol to what s happening in our world today Kristen may be planning world dominationight now and we don t know it WE DON T KNOW I deducted one star because I did think that it was a bit slow at the first part but I think that s just because I m not into this genre that much Its very The Claim of Reason rare for me toead books that are fantasy or dystopia Overall I think its obvious that the book is amazing Kristen s writing is extremely visual and she s just plain brilliant Brilliant This book is action packed and genuinely s writing is extremely visual and she s just plain brilliant Brilliant This book is action packed and genuinely an absolute must Patriotic Correctness readYou can alsoead my Managing Depression with CBT for Dummies review HERE Because I couldn t wait any longer to share my thoughts with you guys Pre order this book You can thank me laterWow you guys WOW This book blew me away I knew I was going to love it from the very first page And that cover The first chapter is explosive and I was hookedight from the start Glass Arrow is a beautiful and wild ideThe world building was epic It painted a very vivid picture in my head and I could easily see this being a movie It neeeeds to be a movie I felt like I was IN the world while I was eading Not to mention the idea for this story was IN the world while I was The Organization of Higher Education reading Not to mention the idea for this story uniue and interesting It s kind of scary to think about too Women are basically property and are sold for breedingights cringes I loved the dynamics of the society The Watchers the Pips the Virulent the Drivers I could tell that Kristen put a LOT of thought into the world she created It was all very convincing I had no problem believing this world because Kristen totally sells itAya won my heart from the beginning with her fiesty and defiant attitude I loved that she never gave up and never conformed And some of her inner dialogue made me love her even such as I wonder how well she d sing if I punched her in her skinny throat Lmao I would think those things and she would say themThere was only one time that she annoyed me view spoilerWhen she used Kiran to try and break the purity Collaring the Saber-Tooth (Masters of the Cats, rule She wanted him to sleep with her only because she d get Marked not because she actually wanted to Iteally irked me that she was using him like that after he d tried to save her life And then when he Multilateral Negotiations refused she assumed it s because she s not pretty enough Or maybe he just didn t want to be used Maybe he only wants to have sex with someone who actually wants to have sex with him hide spoiler A standalone dystopianI know it s crazy Theeally insane thing is that she totally could have stretched this out into a trilogy Hell she could have made it into a trilogy #with 2 novellas not because it was necessary but just to sueeze money #2 novellas not because it was necessary but just to sueeze money us cough cough But she didn t and I totally appreciate thatThis isn t your typical dystopian What sets it apart is mostly the end so don t click unless you want to be spoiled a bit view spoilerUnlike nearly all dystopians she doesn t become the leader of the Millennial Monsters rebellion She doesn t overthrow the evil government The world is still fucked up at the end of this book That s sad but also kind ofealistic hide spoiler Sometimes you just know from the start if a book is for you or not I simply can t this one dnf When you hear the words young adult dystopian what are the first things that come to your mind Wait don t bother I m going to do a checklist for you There is a special teenage snowflake who insists she is average and normal but catches the attention of one or two or three love interests who

Ve this world enowned checklist a big fuck you It may not look like at first but this standalone YA dystopian is about an unfortunate girl who was stuck in an unfortunate cruel world and strived to escape it in order to lead her own life in her own terms There is no teenage character who tries to start and lead a For Petes Sake (Piper Cove Chronicles rebellion no tyrant or government with all theesources in the world tumbling down because of one person this book isn t that at all And that is what basically makes it uniueMeet Aiyana whose auction name is Clover who is trapped in a The Wrangler rather bleak post apocalyptic world where women are dominated by men They are seen as the inferior human being passed on from one auctioneer to another used only to hopefully breed boys who will continue this vicious cycle She was living so well in the mountains away from the city where all of these evil acts were taking place when one day she was tracked and hunted and brought to the breeding houses in order to be bought and played byich businessmen and magnates From then on it becomes a story of survival not for the human The Celebrity Doctors Proposal race but for herself and for those she holds dearI have to admit that I didn t expect this book to turn out the way it did Havingead so many post apocalyptic dystopians before I ve expected that down the Un dernier tour road the characters would go This is a cause bigger than any of us We have to change the world for the sake of mankind so color me surprised when the characters here looked out for themselves I found itefreshing and honestly The Utility of Splendor realistic Men and women alike were suffering from the hands ofich and entitled and greedy assholes but when you Supergifted (Ungifted, re powerless to do anything when you do not have theesources and you only have yourself to count on what can you doIt s easy to say We should be better than our human instincts and try to make a difference when we The Long, Hot Texas Summer (McCabe Homecoming re in the 21st century and we have laws protecting ourselves from basically being human trafficked but the average normal person in this book had none of that You make eye contact when you shouldn t KILLED You speak when you shouldn t KILLED It s authless world where people take the slightest opportunities in order to climb an inch up the ladder so it was efreshing to see a tough strong minded and independent character like Aiyana who instead of trying to change the world tried to change her world instead I mean what exactly can you do against steroid pumped genetically altered security guards Or ich assholes who can buy the world ten times over The best thing you can do is to fend your yourself survive for yourself and that s what we end up seeing hereIt definitely was an intense experience as Aiyana struggled and fought her way towards freedom against people who were far powerful than her in ways than one Sometimes when your life is on the line you only need to trust your gut and instinct to survive And oh luck tooMy only gripe with this book was that there were times when it was Undercover Alliance (The Confederacy Treaty, really dragging It is a stand alone but it is uite slow paced like Aiyana goes into solitary confinement and maaaan there were so many pages about the same thing done over and over again or about small details like her minute actions so I was frustrated sometimes I ended up skipping a lot of those dragging scenes and ended up missing almost nothingTheomance was pretty good too it was slow and steady where the characters learned about each other first before diving into these fluffy feelings of love Plus their situations were pretty interesting too so it made for some intriguing dynamicsAll in all a very solid YA dystopian that brings something new to the plate and to the genre It has a determined and sympathic heroine everyone will have no problem Heart of Gold rooting for authless world that will send chills down people s spines a The Quiet World romance that is sweet and heart warming and a journey towards survival that will keep people on their toes Not to be missed You had me at Blood Red Road Review also available at Jenna Does Books Only one book that I veead in ecent months can drag me back out from the cave I ve burrowed myself inside a book that challenges all that exists in YA

and she s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaningWhat I LikedI neveread The Handmaid s Tale one of my friends LOVE it though nor did I ever make it to the end of Blood Red Road I Y por eso rompimos - Episodio final really tried so the comparison in the synopsis is wasted on me But back in mid 2013 when I saw that Kristen Simmons was writing a new book I added it without uestion It worked out for me in the end because my lastead of 2014 just so happens to be a A Escola Nocturna (Night School, rare five staread and a favoriteAya has been captured from her home in the wild She will be bought by someone in order to be bred to have a healthy son Females who can produce healthy children specifically males are scarce With the help of a Driver she will attempt to escape her buyer and find her family before they are captured and sold like she wasI LOVE THIS BOOK I love Aya I love Kiran I love the story I love the world building I love the El Detective de la Mafia romance I love the ending I love the cover I loveeee this book Just about everything is wonderful I m a big believer in nothing is perfect and every book has its flaws but at the moment I m basking in the this book was so awesome glowAya grew up in the woods She didn t live in the city where people get their meals via a meal pill This is why her womb is so valuable she has a natural body and is fertile She is captured by businessmen and taken to the Garden where she and other girls are auctioned to the highest bidder Aya does everything to avoid the auctions she injures herself and gets into fights to avoid the auctions In her mostecent stunt she lands herself in solitary where she makes the acuaintance of a mute Driver whom she names KiranKiran isn t in solitary he s a Driver and he s not confined But Aya talks to him though he can t talk back When Aya is finally auctioned she is stunned because she has been sold She has to leave behind a dirty wolf whom she named Brax and Kiran whom she nicknamed for the color of his eyes But as it would turn out Kiran is neither mute nor stupid He is an integral part of this bookAya is such an interesting protagonist She is naturally spirited and wild than the other girls in the city but for a Burning Alive (Sentinel Wars, reason she is from the outside She never stops trying to e The Handmaid s Tale meets Blood Red Road Sign me up And unlike most times I actually agree with that description The Glass Arrow is a story about a girl living in a terrifying world where women are sold like livestock to the highest bidder Fortunately for her she has beenaised in the wild away from it all Until now she gets caught by hunters and she s shown no mercy Being a fan of Kristen s Article 5 series I had high hopes for this one Even though I didn t absolutely love it it does have a lot going for it that I think many will enjoy The world building is what I found to be the book s best uality We Love Muscle Gym re shown the ins and outs of this cruel world from the beginning both outside and inside the city The plot itself however is fairly slow paced throughout We spend a lot of time imprisoned in solitary brooding planning and longing for freedom While this can get a bit monotonous at times on this in a sec it does allow for some excellent character building We get to know Aya uite personally how she thinks why sheeacts the way she does until she becomes a part of ourselves She s definitely not flawless and a couple of times I wanted to scream at her for what she was about to do but it was easy to put myself in her shoes and understand what led to her decisions She shows kindness in the midst of cruelty and that s Metabolic Adaptations in Plants During Abiotic Stress rarely a mistake I did struggle for the first half of the book though During her imprisonment Aya does nothing but plan her escape Her determined attitude makes it easy for us tooot for her however there are so many failed attempts and botched plans that I began to get frustrated Combined with the slow pacing I felt like these instances were nothing but attempts at building excitement but then went unrewarded Maybe to mask the fact that we were moving at A Snail S Pace snail s pace it only highlighted the lack of progression in my opinion Having someone try and fail over and over again is discouraging and left me feeling annoyed instead of sympathetic or eagerEventually we do start moving forward The least 40% or so is full of adventure and excitement and hope and bravery Our view of this world gets complex as we delve deeper into the different factions we meet a few secondary characters while learning intriguing twists along the way A bit of Jeremy Irons and the Prince of Perversion romance shows its head in this final chapter too but it s still fairly low ball so don t expect a veryomantically inclined story at all It s about family and survival in a world where death could be a mercy Fans of survivalist stories are likely to take a liking to this one as long as you don t mind its unhurried nature An advance copy was provided by the publisher for Battle for Inspector West (Inspector West, reviewFor of myeviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads Kristen Simmons has fast become one of my favorite authors I was ecstatic to find out that she was eleasing a new book this year and even excited that it was a dystopian because she excels at writing those With The Glass Arrow Kristen Simmons once again proved why she is an auto buy author for me Intense action packed and emotionally draining The Glass Arrow is Kristen s strongest book yetIn any book it s the characters that eally make the story The Glass Arrow featured one of my favorite heroines a badass and a definite ole model Aya may be young at 15 but she had seen a lot Despite all the suffering that she Had To Endure She to endure she strong throughout the entire book I love that she was esilient and was never afraid to Owning Regina rise up again even though she fell hard uite a bit Now that s an admirable uality in a YA heroine For me her ability to continue fighting for her loved ones and for her dignity was made her such a beautiful character Aya wasn t just tough though She had many different layers of complexities to her character We got to see her sweeter and gentle side when she lovingly thought about her family which made her even endearing to me Kristen Simmons always manages to write these fierce characters with layers and layers of depth that you actually want tooot for Her secondary characters are also always well fleshed out My favorite side character was a wolf that Aya adopts Brax I don t know how she did it but that little fellow had so much personality and made me fall hard in love with him Of course I was also tearing up whenever he would try to sa. The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow the story of Aya who lives with a small group of women on the The Summer We Lost Her run from the men who hunt them men who want to auction off breedingights to the highest bidderI.
