Immortal City by Scott Speer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
So ridiculous that I'm not even sure it's worth insulting it. The plot isn't even worth mentioning.
The author can't really write, which was an issue, but I got used to it after a bit. The love story was sort of adorable if not looked at too closely (then it was just absurd.) It shares an issue common to YA books- the immediate problems are solved like magic, but the bigger overarching issues of social justice and whatnot are completely ignored. Most of this book was just meh or kind of cute in its absurdity, but at the end... everything was the same as it had been, but the author treated it as some kind of grand solution. The copout was of course awful- they always are- but for some reason with this book it bothered me more than it usually does.
