Death Wish Review
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
The description of this book seemed to be so interesting to me. I mean like a teenage necromancer/assassin fits the description of an ideal book for me, but this one did not.
I started reading it and was a bit reluctant at first because I wasn't used to the author's style and I hoped it would get better, but it just didn't. I found the plot to go everywhere and also nowhere at all because the characters would go from place to place without any transition, but it really felt like it was all stationary. I read the whole thing in one sitting and found that I really didn't even know what was going on really.
When it came to the characters and story content I found it hard also because it felt to me like it was very basic and stereotypical. The girl was sassy and super cool like every other YA fantasy and the guy was laid back and athletic, and they just didn't mix well for me.
I also had trouble with it because the language used was meant for a more mature audience but I just found the content to be written the same way that a middle-grade chapter book would.
In the end, I give it 2/5 stars because the idea of the story is great and the author really tried to make it good, but it still fell very very short for me. Overall I feel like this book had great potential but it just really wasn't for me.
