Review: Her Revolution




Her Revolution by Caroline Hecate Cavendish
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Blurb from Goodreads:
For fans of Divergent, Red Rising, and The Hunger Games comes a gripping new tale of ambition, treachery, and love.

When what appears as a prank on arrogant ambassadors at an exotic vacation city turns out to be the first tremors of a revolution, the Enlightened Council of Castillia turns to its 11-year old undefeated military prodigy and her loyal Guardians for help.

After all, it was Innocence who liberated the Jewel of All Cities in the first place. Everyone knows she will be the last to let it slip from her grasp.

But why would anyone want to leave Castillia? Its laws are just. Its Council is democratically elected. It has liberated more cities than any other Republic, past or present.

But Castillia has enemies, that’s for sure.

Sedition is the favorite trick of the southern Republic Ausonia. In fact, the exotic vacation city used to belong to Ausonia—and they have always wanted it back.

But could those hedonists really organize anything between all their dancing and drinking?

Or has Vesper, the mighty Republic to the North finally woken from its slumber? It has plenty of old scores to settle with Castillia and it’s palm-lined streets.

Squashing the uprising and re-uniting the town and her city could be the perfect way to end the most legendary military career Castillia has ever known and begin a new, exhilarating life as a prominent politician.

But it also might just be the perfect way to start what Innocence has secretly always yearned for: her own Empire.

I don't know how to begin talking about this one. The cover was interesting, blurb also had made it compelling but then when I started reading it, there was absurd reaction on my face. I don't know why this book was so weird. I think it's one of the very few reads that I've had in my life where I can't just form any opinion about. At time I feel like to just correct the hell out of the things inside it but later then I calm down my inner Mr.Perfectionist and focus more on the story part.

If you might have followed me on Instagram, I had began reading and also had posted a small part of prologue in my stories. The prologue was totally off beat the track that Goodreads had presented me with the blurb and cover everything else. I thought it was weird, maybe I've got a wrong copy? Hence I continued ahead to read, mostly to see if it is indeed a wrong copy or something else.

The first chapter was like the south if the prologue had been the north. I don't know if that was good or bad. Then a few confusing chapters later brainless action began. Although I love action, which probably had made me read ahead. I started feeling there's an actual story and a very deep and huge plot being built up. I liked reading ahead until I finished half of the thing but then the story was stagnant. It was really weird to be frank. You might think I am being rude and bashing but honestly It was weird, and I am just sharing because I don't want to feel weird about it alone. You can read and check it out for yourself.

Personally at the end I felt it was a clear mess of ideas, I am not sure if that's the fault of the ARC provided or something else. But well it felt like the writer just wanted to write and started creating a world and a new story but forgot how to end. I really liked a few scenes and a few chapters because they had deep meanings and great sci fi influence but at same time everything felt odd. Whole thing wasn't making any sense at all.

I don't what to say about this, I would've saved more of my time if I had DNF-ed this but I kept on reading for 10hrs (according to my kindle) and I really don't know why I did that.
