Review: Children of Icarus

29065483 Children of Icarus by Caighlan Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is Clara who is desperate to enter the labyrinth and it is Clara who is bright, strong, and fearless enough to take on any challenge. It is no surprise when she is chosen. But so is the girl who has always lived in her shadow. Together they enter. Within minutes, they are torn apart forever. Now the girl who has never left the city walls must fight to survive in a living nightmare, where one false turn with who to trust means a certain dead end."

Wow, Now I have to go out and buy a copy! I just, how did it take me so long to finish this one? I started it just before it came out after I snagged an ARC from NetGalley, but it expired before I could read most of it. I finally found out that I could get it at the library, and am so glad I finally finished it! (Plus I have the second book on Kindle!)

While I hated...almost everything to do with the Fates, I felt like they were all fake, and while I understand they were kids, and kids can be mean, plus with all the violance and horror, they had to be broken, but I know how it is to have fake friends, and it's awful. On the flip side, the protaginist doesn't try to change anything, and just silently goes along with the treatment, but I can also totally relate to that.

The ending though...just wow. Not only did it make the Fates' treatment worth while, it was my favorite part of the whole book. I'm excited to read the second book now!
