Heir Of Illaria

This has turned me off in the worst way. It is unoriginal, and I really hate the main character, whatever that it is her name. She is about as interesting as a piece of cardboard. And she is also the princess of a kingdom. Like I haven’t heard that a millions times already.

Most importantly, she has absolutely nothing about her that spells creativity. It was like the classic heroine finding out that she was the heir to the family or the throne or whatever. There was no unique spin and definitely no stakes here.

Why does the main character decide to fight, it is because she is a princess and they are after her. Nothing complicated, it is one of the most straightforward and absolutely boring reasons. There is nothing that makes me invested in her at all.

Not go mention, she is naïve, deciding to go with an absolute stranger she has never met. Gets trained, but really there is nothing happening to her. She is still naive, boring and definitely stupid. Not to mention the villain is also stupid, why doesn’t he ever manage to find or even chase her. It’s like pitting two equally stupid people together.

And at 40%, I am out. This is a complete waste of my time, and if you want something unique or take a unique stance on the matter of princesses, go look elsewhere.

  1. Wow! This is one of the funniest reviews I’ve read from you. I’m sorry to hear the book was just that bad. Coming up with unique ideas is hard, so I usually cut the authors some slack lol

    1. Thanks, I also cut the authors some slack too, but there are just some tropes that I really dislike being used again, and well, it wasn’t done originally or bringing anything new on the table.
