Keira Drake Ï 7 REVIEW

REVIEW The Continent 107 Y destination for a holiday a cold desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually locked in combat Most citizens lucky enough to tour the Continent do so to observe the spectacle and violence of war a thing long banished in the Spire For Vaela a talented apprentice cartographer the journey is a dream come true a once in a lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast frozen landBut Vaela’s dream all too uickly tur. My first hint should have been the fact this is a Harleuin Teen novel Romance novels make me roll my eyes too much but a YA romance makes me roll them so hard they get stuck to the back of my head The Continent is a perfect example of an eye rolling face in palm planting groaning out loud why am I still reading this YA romance Vaela Sun of the Spire is celebrating her sixteenth birthday The Spire is a technologically advanced country with heli planes and magnetic trains but is still old world culture where people use calling cards and address one another by their surname Women are regarded as fragile creatures and must hide their bare legs from men A courtship is declared before a couple may date The Spire is peaceful and perfect and everyone is happy unlike the citizens of the Continent Its indigenous tribes have been at war for over two hundred years and the Spire has found this to be a source of entertainment With a multi year waiting list people of the Spire gladly pay big bucks to go on safari and fly their heli planes over the battlefields to watch the two tribes murder one another And Vaela s parents have pulled strings and probably sold their souls to take her on one of these gruesome expeditionsPlease don t even think of comparing this to The Hunger GamesObviously this is not the experience Vaela was hoping for as she becomes stranded in the frozen and unfriendly wastelands It is at this point the book becomes a bit interesting as the scenes in the Spire were painful and forced The family Vaela is traveling with could not be obnoxious Let me clarify the mother was unbelievably fussy and whiny she found the natives gaudy and as she sat in her futuristic heli plane she complained that she doesn t believe in technology There were times I wondered why the woman was even on the damn trip What made these scenes even worse was the dialogue clunky and pretentious I actually read it out loud just to hear how badly it was writtenThen Vaela meets the natives Somehow after not seeing another Spirean for almost 300 years one of the tribes of the Continent is uite fluent in English Their grasp of the language is amazingly good as they are able to use words like indolent tactician and fertility It was a groan out loud moment when a ten year old used the word subterfuge correctly Of course the pampered Vaela is initially useless she can t cook hunt field dress a kill or even clean her own house Servants did everything But of course after meeting the spunky and gorgeous Yuki this changes No surprise Also no surprise Vaela falls madly in love with one of the natives Harleuin remember and must help and has to make a choice between andbecause these people are This is one of those books that with each page you find yourself and aggravated or dumbfounded but there is no way you re going to throw it across the room like you really want to It s the proverbial train wreck you can t look away you want to see what happens Some of the unbelievable moments Vaela actually argues with the man who saved her from certain rape about her love for cartography it s educational and not for battle that s where the word tactician came in Somehow there are oranges in the arctic tundra The natives speak perfect English The existence of Mrs Shaw I could go on and from looking on Goodreads I can see The Continent has a lot of fans so I know I m in the minority but it just didn t click with me I won t be continuing this seriesAddedum SPOILER ALERT I left blanks because I didn t want to ruin the book for anyone but this is how the sentence reads out Vaela falls madly in love with one of the natives Harleuin remember and must help them survive and has to make a choice between the whites and the natives because these people are now her people The Spirean council even tells her she must forfeit her place in the Spire if she chooses to help those on the Continent
