Want to read it I would recommend waiting for it to come down in price because it is not worth the hype It is truly a let down and I wasn t expecting anything at all I truly can t even put into words how much I recommend you don t waste your time with this book It s boring and nothing happens I mean look at the Goodreads rating n it It s damn lowI really just keep getting mad about this book This may sit under All The Bright Places and Caraval for most hated book by me ever I really tried to be nice throughout this review but the I typed the angrier I got that I spent 5 hours reading this load f shit when I could have done absolutely anything else in the world Edit 47 After further reflection I ve decided to drop my rating to 3 stars All f my previous likesdislikes Ultimate Memory Book of Zenith still stand but I feel 3 stars is a better representationf my positivesnegatives for this novel While there were so many things about Zenith that I enjoyed from an entertaining perspective the criticisms I have expressed below are present in my mind than I Pelnrušķis un trollis originally felt4 stars I really enjoyed Zenith High concept sci fi isn t really my thing but as I ve read sci fi in the last few months and have really enjoyed them something about Zenith definitely struck meCW murderdeath ptsd rapeMy favorite thing about Zenith was the plot I ve always considered myself a plot based reader so if the story is adventurous suspenseful and high intensity it s typically a great fit for me I really didn t know much about it before diving inther than epic girl gang Far Strike (The Transcended Book 3) of space pirates which was enough to sell me so the progressionf different plot points and twists and turns was always an exciting surprise The ending also caught me SUPER O Mistério do Infante Santo off guard I was not expecting it at all and the cliffhanger finale leaves so much to be explored in book two and I am going WILD trying to anticipate where things go from hereI also really enjoyed the characters I am a sucker for an externally hard protagonist with a vulnerable side and an admirable dedication to the people she loves so I naturally fell in love with Andi I think Lira has to be my favorite character I was nervous starting this story afraid her character arc would be confined to the dutiful second in command with no individuality but I was SO PLEASED to get her backstory and see herwn story arise within Zenith The best friend in YA rarely gets their Disgrace (Department Q, own perspective so that isne uniue element I loved about this story I also love Breck and Gilly though their characters are not explored as in depth as Andy Monsoon or Lira and I do hope they receive page time in the seuel I particularly appreciated Gilly s character as younger teens can sometimes be sidelined in YA 16 17 and 18 yearlds always get the spotlight and I adore the idea that a 13 year Slice by Slice old girl can defy alldds and be a badass Angels Flight (Legion of Angels Book 8) on a spaceship Valen was another favoritef mine similar to Andy he is rough around the edges but I fell in love with his soft side and am super excited to see the progression Ice Maiden of his character arc from this point forward I have to say my least favorite character was Dex I feel he tried to hard to fit the snarky yet charming frustrating but loveable YA love interest trope I think there s hope for me to like him in the future but I couldn t fall into the hype for him Also Alfie is an amazing addition to the story and I strongly desire a spinff where he is the protagonistAs this is a book with 6 different POVs I felt the shorter chapters complimented the various perspectives and made it easier to follow along I will say I wish the POVs were eual with Andi Lira and Dex dominating where Valen Nor and Klaren are much less freuent My favorite perspectives were Latin Lovers Greek Husbands Bundle of course Lira Andi and Valen with Dex being my least favorite While I now understand the importancef Klaren s chapters after finishing I wish we had gotten Seducing the Heiress outf her story because I spent a lot And Cowboy Makes Three of her chapters wishing to go back to the present story specifically because there wasn t enoughf herI really enjoyed the writing Teasing Her SEAL of the story One element I noticed was how well choreographed the fight scenes were I felt the writing was descriptive and engaging yet kept the story focusedn the present and was not distracting My biggest struggle with this story was the dialogue Interestingly enough I had fewer problems in the interactions between the Marauder crew Andi and Valen Rancher Bears Baby (Rancher Bears, or virtually anyone else besides Dex There was something about scenes with him that felt almost too planned Onef my biggest pet peeves in literature is being able to tell when an author is writing dialogue as A Valentines Wish opposed to a character speaking naturally and I m afraid that was a freuent feelingf mine while reading Zenith Of course this could just be the fact that Dex just irks me for some reason I have not yet Lindsay s Paixão Sem Disfarce other works but I am aware this is Sasha s debut and she has admitted to struggling with dialogue the most so while that is evident in the story it is definitely a skill that can be improved upon If I havene final critiue I m confident this book could have been condensed to be shorter Edit 47 There are SO many simultaneous plot lines that the this book could have been condensed to be shorter Edit 47 There are SO many simultaneous plot lines that the dragged at some points because there were so many story arcs to keep track Rain of While I enjoyed my time reading it was a dense read which caused me to take a break and read a lighter book which I ve never done before inrder to sort f reset myself to stay engaged with the story Edit 47 My engagement with the story was definitely another issue I experienced and I feel if the book had been edited
