A special thank you goes out to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for allowing me to read this eARC early. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I think this is one of the best books I’ve ever read for 2018. Hand to god, this was amazing. The concept was incredibly interesting and creative. The MC, Vela, was charming. The love story was swoon-worthy. Everything about this book was perfection and I never wanted it to end.
Let’s chat about the concept first. The fact that people can get nutrition from pills and the pills come from people that are allowed to eat was totally wild and something I have yet to read about. It was just beyond crazy to know that some of the colonists had never tasted real food. I like food and can’t imagine not being able to eat it.
Vela was awesome. She is of Thai descent and her talking about all the delicious Thai food made me hungry. I loved how charming and down to earth Vela was. She was a princess but she tried to be more than that. She reminded me of Princess Diana as the People’s Princess. Vela tried to make sure she knew everybody and what grievances they had. I appreciated her immensely.
The love story between Carr and Vela was adorable. They had known each other all their lives. I love stories like that, where they have known each other all their lives and love each other for their faults and all. They complemented each other in the best way possible. They have gained in a spot in my top 10 favorite couples!
Overall, this was perfect. Absolutely perfect. I seriously cannot recommend this book and the author enough. Pintip is incredibly talented and I can’t wait to see what else she does.
