Altered by Gennifer Albin : Review and Giveaway!

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Life. Possibility. Choice.
All taken from Adelice by the Guild—until she took them back.

But amid the splendid ruins of Earth, Adelice discovers how dangerous freedom can be. Hunted by soulless Remnants sent by Cormac Patton and the Guild, Adelice finds a world that’s far from deserted. Although allies are easy to find on Earth, knowing who to trust isn’t. Because everyone has secrets, especially those Adelice loves most. Secrets they would kill to protect. Secrets that will redefine each of them. Torn between two brothers and two worlds, Adelice must choose what to fight for.

In this thrilling sequel to Crewel, Adelice is about to learn how tangled up her past and future really are. Her parents ran to protect her, but nothing can save her from her destiny, and once she uncovers the truth, it will change everything.

Goodreads Summary

This book contains all of the elements perfect for a teen/young adult Halloween read.  I loved Adelice's strong character and I did like readin and about her once again.  However, this book threw me for a loop.  I was surprised to find that the plot that I was used to in the first book had completely and ironically altered.   I did eventually adjust to this, but I was surprised for the first few chapters.  This plot involves Adelice going on a mission to discover the truth-while this might not sound like a new concept, the author handles it in such a way to keep the reader avidly reading.  

Adelice is likable, as always, but I wished that she would make more difficult decisions.  It seemed like she was a little too indecisive at times.  I did enjoy most of the other characters.  I think that the author spent a lot of time developing characters and I am grateful for this.  The world-building in this novel was fantastic.  The details were intricate and I could literally picture everything in my mind.  This book is perfect for fans of the series and young adults/teens.
