I am not a romantic person. Not even close. I don’t try looking for mushy-gushy love stories. I was really hoping this wouldn’t end up that way once I decided to read it. However, the reason I did decide to try this out is because I had never read a book with a physically disabled main character, so I was curious about the representation and how this would play out.

This series is basically about war. Not a spoiler! It’s the entire theme. It’s like an escalation. It gets heavier as the books progress. It is a slower progression to allow for the development of the characters, for you to really get to know them. Which I found important because as you grow to care for characters, laugh at the humor peppered about, fear for those loved characters, and hate others, you realize it’s because you could learn about them that you can experience that rollercoaster.
