love, LOVE this book cover DEDICATION To those that have suffered under an iron fist Be these are not my official comments, but I did love this story will re read at a later time and then

post a proper review after I have finished the series hopefully in April Go Semara love, love, LOVE this book cover DEDICATION To those that have suffered under an iron fist Be bold Be brave Be free.My CommentsKnight has managed to create an epic world where the human race is no longer alone, Neumarians are a slave race that seemingly must be controlled because they are dangerous, the United States are a thing of the past, and you must work to survive Princess Semara was raised by her father, but since his death she is now in the custody and under the abusive rule of her Queen mother who is determined to get Semara on the council with her and marry her off to a tyrannical general This is the kind of YA book that will hook readers from the first chapter and keep you longing to knowabout how Semara escapes There are three races in this book.humans, Kantians they possess the gift of a supreme mind , and Neumarians called parasites, monsters and considered a threat danger to the Queen and other Kantians The Queen is Kantian so Semara believes herself to be one also Her father was human She will need to discover who she really is and where she belongs.When Semara first meets Ryder, he saves her life, but he s annoying at first He comes across as very smug, arrogant, and resistant about helping Semara However, as they learn to depend on each other through one disaster after another, Ryder becomes muchprotective of her and a friendship develops I was very satisfied with how slowly they get to like each other There is some kissing between them and literally sparks go off, but I didn t consider their chemistry inappropriate.Raeth is Ryder s younger sister and was once friends with Semara Raeth is also protective of Semara and reminds Ryder that Semara is worth whatever trouble they must overcome Little does Ryder know of the secret between Raeth and Semara, their friendship started 4 years ago until Semara was forced to witness the destruction of Raeth It s something Semara has never forgiven herself over and now that friendship between the girls will be restoredabout Semara and Raeth s friendship is described in book 0.5, Weighted.There s a few scenes with the general that imply his intentions are not pure slight understatement , both with Semara and with another woman, but he gets interrupted both times It s not difficult to hate him The Queen mother is so wicked she makes Darth Vader seem like a harmless robot think Johnny 5 from Short Circuit without the cute personality She works on controlling, manipulating, and scheming against others to keep her reign and torment others She ll gladly torture and kill whoever gets in her way, and she ll do so proudly and while laughing Thankfully, she only has a few scenes in this book but her presence is felt throughout.My fave characters in this story were Bendar, Fallon, Dred, and Maggie.Ryder, Raeth and Semara MUST survive they must constantly escape crazy scenarios they must take a dangerous and unpredictable journey if they want to succeed in creating an uprising that will stop the Queen They will face creepy creatures in the Wasteland those spiderats are the grossest things ever written , Scavengers who would just as easily shoot you then trade with you, being trapped, imprisoned, and constant injustice as they are just three teens banded together on this impossible quest Yet they find strength within themselves they never knew existed and they each risk one another s lives to help the other two That was what drew me most to this book Despite the deadly creatures and characters they come across.there is hope, unity, romance, tenderness, and loyalty between them Even though Ryder curses in his own language several times, there is no actual bad language and that was another aspect I appreciated in this adventure These 3 teens fight for one another and stand together in determination to bring true freedom to a land that is being destroyed mercilessly by a cold queen It s always amazing when three young adults risk everything to put a stop to this farce of a reign and they make a real difference along the way Knight pens this book in such a way that the reader is THERE with Semara and rooting for her the entire time while QUICKLY turning the pages to see what happens next This book is over 30 chapters, but it s such a fast enjoyable experience that the reader forgets everything else The ending of the book is to be continued so I strongly recommend purchasing the ebook set so you don t miss out on the other two parts We ll see what Pendulum brings after reading the second time, still loved the story and worth five stars, but really surprised how violent the ending was great characters but they never get a break

    I really, really love this series I read this book as fast as I could because I couldn t wait to see what happens Unfortunately things like work and sleep got in the way Now that I am finished all I have to say is how much longer do I have to wait for the next book First I am going to start with the cover of this book I love the cover It is awesome and like the prequel it goes so well with the story The cover alone makes me want to read this story Again the clock is on the front and this I really, really love this series I read this book as fast as I could because I couldn t wait to see what happens Unfortunately things like work and sleep got in the way Now that I am finished all I have to say is how much longer do I have to wait for the next book First I am going to start with the cover of this book I love the cover It is awesome and like the prequel it goes so well with the story The cover alone makes me want to read this story Again the clock is on the front and this time Princess Semara is on the cover whereas with Weighted the cover featured Raeth Do I dare hope that Ryder may be on one of the covers The characters in this book are written wonderfully I feel like I know them after reading this story This story takes place 4 years after the prequel This story is written from Princess Semara s point of view There is some romance in this story also It is not insta love nor is it fated It just slowly builds I thought that the romance was very well written and it is to be continued in the next book.The ending had some definite things left open to be answered in the next books The author really knows how to write an ending that leaves you waiting to find out what happens next and clear up some of the mystery without leaving you feeling like the book just cut off.I can t wait for the next in this series I know I already said that but I really can t wait I hope it comes soon because waiting for this story to come out was long enough If it wasn t for some other issues I would have had this book read and reviewed last month All I want to do now is go back and re read it again Trust me this is a great series to get in to I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review

    I really wasn t sure what rating to give this book The plot is really interesting with many new ideas and exotic fantasy beings and gifts There is a lot of action in it and there are a lot of twists and turns But here is the problem as many ideas as there are, I had a feeling that none of them was really thought through Nothing was explained fully, everything was hinted at and sometimes a character that I wasn t even aware had arrived said or did something At times this was really puzzli I really wasn t sure what rating to give this book The plot is really interesting with many new ideas and exotic fantasy beings and gifts There is a lot of action in it and there are a lot of twists and turns But here is the problem as many ideas as there are, I had a feeling that none of them was really thought through Nothing was explained fully, everything was hinted at and sometimes a character that I wasn t even aware had arrived said or did something At times this was really puzzling and at some points it even got on my nerves The fantasy animals were never really described, so I couldn t get a feeling for anything The characters were likable but just like the story they would have neededdetail Conflicts were hinted at and foreshadowed but the moment they appeared they were mysteriously solved or forgotten I would suggest to the author get a good editor and revise the book It has the potential to be great but I feel like it was written in a great haste So in sum I would give it 2,5 stars

    I have to say that I loved this book Yes, it moved very quickly but you were caught up in the excitement and it was not a bad thing I love when books move you along and not drag out to the point that I am bored to tears There was enough tension and things that you got glimpses of but you never knew the whole story Ms Knight did a great job of developing her characters and making you either love or hate them.I am not going to give a lot of details about the story, that has already been done I have to say that I loved this book Yes, it moved very quickly but you were caught up in the excitement and it was not a bad thing I love when books move you along and not drag out to the point that I am bored to tears There was enough tension and things that you got glimpses of but you never knew the whole story Ms Knight did a great job of developing her characters and making you either love or hate them.I am not going to give a lot of details about the story, that has already been done by others But this is a great read and from the moment I started it, I could hardly put it down
