This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Violet’s in her element. Cosplay at the ready, she can’t wait to feel part of her favorite fandom: The Gallows Dance, a mega book and movie franchise that she and her friends know EVERY WORD of (canon and fanfic included).
But at Comic Con, a freak accident transports Violet and her friends into the story for real. And in just the first five minutes, they cause the death of the heroine, and get taken prisoner by the rebel group she was supposed to lead to victory.
It’s up to Violet to take her place, and play out the plot the way it was written. But stories have a life of their own, and when you change the script in one place, the rest gets revised too.
The problem with high hopes are usually that you get disappointed and I really am. I expected to be vowed with lots of different worlds from different books, instead it’s some made up story in some made up world that isn’t even interesting.
Besides the flat world – building the characters fell flat. I couldn’t connect with any of them at all. One was incredibly annoying, another was extremely self-entered and the last one didn’t have any noticeable traits. The only one whom was a bit interesting was the little brother Nate, but he just ended up annoying me as well.
It was a struggle I must say. Some parts of the book was decent, it wasn’t all bad, but when you’re struggling with a boring book that’s over 400 pages long it becomes tiresome and some of the good parts of the book seem to fade in the background.
I’ve heard there’s a sequel planned and I can clearly say now, that I won’t be reading that one. I got tons of books that I want to read and wasting a day and sometimes two days reading something bad or semi bad feels like a waste of time and frankly, this is the biggest waste of time as of yet in 2019.
I must say the idea of visiting other worlds made by other authors seems intriquing.
