What did you think of the synopsis? Did it reveal too much plot or too little?
EveryBookCounts– The synopsis pretty much sums up the novel. It is simple and clean, which greatly reflects how the novel was written.
ThatOneNerdyGirl– I agree, although it does exaggerate a little bit, the way it’s phrased seems like there’s going to be a lot more political turmoil.
What did you think of the characters? Was there character development?
T- The characters were pretty simple in my opinion. March was the stereotypical hunk, Jullietta the rebellious princess and so on. Honestly, I can tell you the trope of every single character, main or side. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though.
E- I agree. The characters were what you would expect from such a stereotypical romance novel.
What did you think of the plot?
E- It was simple, as expected. It revolved around their love story with some twists and turns to keep you interested. It could have been better, of course, but it is what it is.
T- This is the stereotypical feel good book. It has a love story (with a happy ending) and some stuff in between to keep you interested.
Were there problems in the story?
T- I didn’t find any plot holes. The story was quite simple too, so it would’ve been hard to actually make plot holes.
E- Very funny but also true. The only problem I had was in the end, where I was just waiting for the book to end.
What do you think the author did right?
E- The simplicity. Even though it can also be considered a bad thing, the fact that the book was so simple and easy to read allowed me to finish it which, otherwise, probably wouldn’t happen.
T- I couldn’t agree more. This is an excellent book if you simply have lots of work to do and need to take a breather.
What do you think the author did wrong?
T- I personally would have preferred if the characters weren’t constantly repeating themselves. However, that may have been used to reiterate their ideas.
E- There could have been more emphasis in the political part of the book but I understand that, to some people, its appeal comes from the romance.
What was your favorite quote?
E- ‘ “I would die for you. I would sacrifice everything to save your life.”
“That won’t be necessary.” Humor filtered through his tone. “I don’t plan on dying anytime soon.” ‘
T- ‘ “I think you are so ugly the seer cannot find a mate who would accept you.”
“Who are you calling ugly? Have you ever checked in a mirror?” Kur pushed back. March laughed. They were identical.”
What was your opinion on the ending? Would you prefer if it had been different?
T- Honestly, I knew the ending from the start. No one spoiled it, it was simply the only ending this book could have, knowing its genre.
E- I agree. It was a good ending but also the only ending the book could have.
