Sonja's Review

I have been so excited to read Ravage ever since I read the ending in Reap. I couldn't wait to see what would happen, how everything would play out, and I couldn't have been happier with what I got. Ravage was such an amazing book and I positively loved it! 

Zoya is a total kicka*s heroine! She might be soft and sweet, but she has a fierce inner strength and will that will floor you. She's been through so much, but it's never broken her and she never really loses sight of who she is at her core. Zoya is understanding, compassionate, and wise - she is absolutely wonderful and I couldn't have stopped myself from loving her if I tried. I know she will do you proud. 

Valentin utterly broke my heart - his greatest desire is to protect his sister and free her from their hell. Even though his heart aches to be free and to be good, all he can see is the monster he was trained to be and he can't understand how Zoya sees something more than that. Valentin is more than just a monster though, he's loyal, protective, sweet, and sincere. He's been touched by evil and while it has left its mark on him, it hasn't completely consumed him or taken over. Valentin is good and sweet and he stole my heart like he stole Zoya's. 

Ravage is a heartbreaking, gut wrenching, breathtaking read that will make your heart pound, your blood race, and fill you with anticipation, wondering what's going to come next. It will anger you, make you feel helpless and frustrated at times, and make you ache, but it will also touch your heart, warm it, and melt it. Ravage is dark but beautiful and light too - I loved it and I can't wait for the next book! 

Ravage is a standalone, it's told from several points of view, and Valentin and Zoya do get a happy ending.
