(Review) Shattered Veil by Tracy E. Banghart
The only thing keeping me from finishing and reviewing this book is actually because I fail to finish it before the time it was archived. Not because the dates are too short, but just because something happen to me in real life during that period and I suck.
Anyway, I thought after so long, I owe this title at least something to say. So here I am going to summarise my feelings towards it into a (kind of) short paragraph. I did say I fail to complete this book, but it's not because of the story or writing style or any elements of the book at all. Everything was fine.
I love the plot. The thing I love about Dystopian is how an author get to create a whole new other universe, yet it could also be tricky, unsuccessful attempts in introducing their world may result a huge pile of mess and lots of confused audience. Every new information and twists needs to be revealed with a perfect timing, and although, in this book, some of them are revealed accordingly, I felt like there are still some (or a lot) of question marks about the world of Shattered Veil. I felt like I need more background about the time and setting before I can peacefully go ahead.
I have to admit, those question marks I mentioned above had me nodding off quite a lot at the beginning of the novel. It was interesting, it was nicely written, but the beginning part was just a tad dull. But it was all thankfully paid in the other part of the book where all the action had started, so I don’t think much about the beginning part after I went further. We can definitely witness the characters developed throughout the story, so a plus point there too.
Overall, the book was a three star for me. Major potential for the plot and everything, but I thought it could use more deeper introduction about this universe. Would totally buy a copy of this book to finally see how it concludes, maybe then I can complete my review too.
