But the Bronzes must fight it out at the Shadow Trials for the few remaining spots left on the space station. When an enigmatic benefactor hands Maia Graystone a spot in the Trials, she won’t just get a chance at salvation for her and her baby brother, Max: She gets to confront the mother who abandoned her in prison, the mad Emperor who murdered her father, and the Gold prince who once loved her. But it’s the dark bastard prince she’s partnered with that will make her question everything, including her own heart. With the asteroid racing closer every day, Maia must trust someone to survive. The question is who?
TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
What really grabbed my attention to this book, was the cover. It's a beautiful cover. I love a great YA Dystopian. Shadow Fall took me forever to finish. There is a mixture of many different Dystopian themes, that maybe have been used too much. I didn't feel like it was this brand new idea.
There is so much build up and information that is thrown at you. I can't really put my finger on it, but it didn't grab me. I didn't feel like I needed to finish. But I kept on reading. I liked the story, though. The writing was really good. So I'd be interested in reading something else by Grey in the future.
Overall, I have to give this a two. It was ok, but could've been better.
