To celebrate the fact that Catherine Doyle, author of Vendetta and the upcoming Inferno, is releasing exclusive short stories on her website in the next few weeks, I thought I would share 5 reasons why Inferno is the best book EVER, ahead of my review in January. Read to the end for a giveaway of Vendetta and Inferno!
1. SO. MUCH. ACTION.
There isn’t a dull moment in Inferno and I couldn’t put it down when I was reading it because something exciting happens on every page which makes it impossible not to read on. I’ve said before about Vendetta that it’s as if you’re watching the events of the book take place rather than reading them, and I had exactly the same experience with Inferno. These books are PERFECT if you love books that you can’t forget about and can read in one go.
2. Sophie is one of the most realistic protagonists in YA
I love reading about Sophie because it feels like she is a part of me. She has flaws and there’s a particularly emotional scene in Inferno where I realised just how realistic Sophie is; I know I would have reacted in exactly the same way as she did. It makes me excited to read further on in the Blood for Blood saga in the future just so I can get to know Sophie even better.
There’s an extremely cute scene involving a doughnut, hence the above picture and I can’t help but re-read it over and over again. If you need a reason to read Inferno as soon as it’s released, read it for this scene!
4. Awesome female friendships!
I love Sophie’s best friend, Millie, and her and Sophie’s relationship is the best. They’re always there for each other and we definitely need more relationships like theirs in YA. I want a best friend like Millie!
5. THE FALCONES.
Obviously, if you’ve read Vendetta, you’ll know that the Falcones are at the centre of the plot, but in Inferno things get even more complicated. It means that we get to see even more of the Falcone family and more of their backstory is revealed. PLUS, lots more Nic and Luca. Which is what we all want.
The next Inferno blog post will be next Monday on The Dark Dictator.
