Disclaimer This book was sent to me by the publisher Random House Children s via NetGalley for an honest review Opinion You know those books you come across that sound AMAZING like they will be an EXACT fit for you and are already praised and LOVED by EVERYONE And then you start reading it all giddy and excited for what s to comebut then you get about 60 pages in and are just kind of likeYeah Killing November November assumed she had a normal upbringing that was until she arrived at Academy Absconditi Here the students aren t animated with conversation worried about calculus tests and pining over who will ask them to homecoming Their movements are deliberate and they are masters at mind games and killing So why would November s father leave her in a place like this Where the teachers enact an eye for an eye punishment system family secrets are to be kept hidden for one s safety and students keep turning up dead Surrounded by people who assume she is weaving a clever game of innocence and daftness November is thrust into a world she can barely navigate all the while trying to learn the secrets of her family and who she is Killing November is a YA Mystery dripping in deceit manipulation darkness and brutality I witnessed all these themes and while reading But in the end all I was REALLY left feelingwas indifferenceIt started out great November describes being named after a maple tree how her father describes her as too trusting and having awakened in dungeon like room with little idea how she arrived there Who wouldn t be intrigued As I started reading I learned that November is just like most of us readers not entirely proficient in the art of deceiving and killing people via poisons a bow and arrow or a set of freshly sharpened knives Woe is us for our normalcy She knows nothing of Strategia an ancient secret society of spies and assassins has barely heard a whisper about the Families of the Strategia who are responsible for pulling the strings behind MAJOR historical events throughout history and has no idea how she fits into any of it So as the story started picking up and November was thrust into her new lessons I started noticing a constant theme of wishy washiness with this character For most of the story November is running around like a confused goose saying and doing the wrong things I don t blame the poor girl either this school sounds like a nuthouse But when November is given a task in lessons to steal a scarf off another player in the dark or throw knives at targetsshe becomes arrogant and cocky and just magically knows what she is doing Look I love a confident character who has witty comments and a snarky attitudeI know that she had a little training in these areas as a child But when the main character acts like a deer in headlights for 80% of the book and has a few random and brief moments of god awful one liners boasting her perfection it s a turn off After the first instance of this and the multiple continuances of her silly demeanor and confusing personality after I became increasingly checked out I almost DNF d this book about 15 times but kept at it because so many other readers were telling me how much they loved it So I forced myself to keep readingand readingandreading In the end they were right in some cases It DID get better But it wasn t amazing and unforgettable It was just okay I really wish I could have fell in love with this story because the suspense was there The mystery and grittiness were shouting through the pages but I just couldn t connect with November or any of the other characters for that matter The romance element was lacking in that it felt shoved together rather than formed naturally and the friendship between Layla and November felt stiff I just wasn t invested in this read at all and for that I am truly dismayed

Read Killing November Killing November #1 ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub review Ò E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Adriana Mather review Killing November Killing November #1 It’s a school completely off the grid hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps There’s no electricity no internet and an eye for an eye punishment system Classes include everything from Knife Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analy. This is gonna be one of the kick ass fast paced astonishing YA novels of the year with full of non stop action introduces us one of the brilliant badass heroine November Her name belongs to month of Scorpio sign and so there s so much hidden potential and secrets inside this character and I think she s going to discover herself and turn into her perfect version on the upcoming novels of the series which I cannot wait to read them It s great to see a movie producer and actor can write so powerful entertaining captivating book I really recommend it to action mystery fans It reminds you of the combination of Syfy channel s Deadly Class series and some darker Harry Potter books starting with book 4 when Cedric Diggory dies to book 7 without magic but full of violence I tried to read it slowly because I didn t want it to end but in the meantime I couldn t put it down But I had really great time when I was hooked by the story
