I think my original review still sums up my thoughts on this book pretty well... Not that I actually know what it says, but I'm lazy, and have a million RTC's already, sooo... I loved it just as much this time around, therefore my options on it are exactly the same still. That logic works, right?

---------

WOW! I’ve been wanting to read this book for ages, and I was NOT disappointed! It’s also taken ages for me to get around to actually reviewing it. So, oops. But whatever, at least I am actually reviewing it.

I loved the plot of Ruined. Em is desperate to get revenge on the royal family of Lera, for killing her parents, and taking her sister prisoner. She disguises herself as the prince’s betrothed, so that she can get into the castle to spy on/kill the royal family. Then of course, she falls in love with the prince.

It’s not exactly the most original plot, but it was very well done, and I admit, it’s a plot line I love. Every. Single. Time.
Also, although it isn’t the most original concept, there was also some fairly unique aspects to the plot. And I just really liked it.

I also found it really cool how there’s two different sides to it, and yet I don’t think either side is really wrong. I can’t even decide which side I’m rooting for. And I love that.

I ADORED the characters in this! They were awesome, and wonderful, and very funny! And I just loved them so much!

OVER ALL
I WANT BOOK TWO!!! Yes, this is a valid, and completely coherent description of my feelings about this book. Don’t question this.

Trying again!

This was a wonderful book, and I desperately want the sequel. Or just to reread this one. Ideally both. Basically, I just want more about these wonderful characters. And, you know, I sort of want to know what happens. ( )

it went from bad to typical to no more please.

I mostly enjoyed reading this. It's a bit generic in fantasy setting, but the characters are really interesting, and go through genuine self-reflection and growth. I believed in the character relationships--including the all-important and central romantic one. Up until about halfway, I was finding it pretty tight and intriguing. After about halfway, though, it got a bit saggier for me, separating some of the main elements and--I felt--padding out with action that just wasn't as compelling. ( )

3.75. Some of the world building was lacking, but other than that it kept me engaged and rarely had a boring moment.

However, I did like that Em didn't possess any of the magical abilities of the Ruined. While there were definitely similarities to other fantasy series, this was one element that stuck out. ( )

This was everything I wanted it to be! I honestly couldn't put this down.

I loved its fast and always moving pace; it constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. And I liked that it wasn't afraid to go places; to take those necessary plot risks to keep the plot developing.

I really liked Em and Cas as characters. Em shows great character growth throughout and Cas is just a sweetheart. And their romance was exactly what I wanted to read and see.

While this story does borrow characteristics and tropes common to the genre, (I think many readers will draw parallels to other novels) I still had a lot of fun with this story. It still felt fresh to me and it definitely has its own unique quirks to make it stand out on its own.
