Captive 26 11 13 waiting impatiently patiently for the release 26 11 13 waiting impatiently patiently for the release 1 question Aren t we supposed to actually LIKE the main character in a book This series would seriously be fantastic if not for two things 1 Benjy and Kitty s relationship It s so unbelievably bland I mean, I m told about how great a love they have and blah, blah, blah but that s all I m just told about it but I ve never been given reason as to why their love story is even worth telling So the grew up together, that s not really interesting Also, it s so awkward And they re both so hung up on sex at random moments, like chill, we kinda have other things we shoul This series would seriously be fantastic if not for two things 1 Benjy and Kitty s relationship It s so unbelievably bland I mean, I m told about how great a love they have and blah, blah, blah but that s all I m just told about it but I ve never been given reason as to why their love story is even worth telling So the grew up together, that s not really interesting Also, it s so awkward And they re both so hung up on sex at random moments, like chill, we kinda have other things we should be worrying about other than the two of you getting to do it view spoiler and that sex scene was so uncomfortable they were just like yup we need to have sex right now just because we might not be able to after this soooo romantic it wasn t set up or anything and then were given akward commentary afterward as if the readers needed to be reminded that kitty and benjy s relationship is the equivalent of two middle schoolers who are convinced they are in love hide spoiler 2 Kitty s goddamn repetitiveness Not once in this entire novel did she do as she promised she would And every single time she screwed Knox over Sure, she s allowed to make mistakes and act selfishly every now and then but literally did it the entire novel It s so unbelievably frustrating And to be quite honest, she can be a big hyprocrite too She blames Knox for everything that has gone wrong in her life and for not trusting her when she never even proves to be truthworty How can she not understand that he is trying to actually change the world and how he can t just let her spill all of his secrets She has really unfair judgement to him especially considering he s the only character in this god forsaken series who s actually Getting Shit Done But other than that this series has actually really interesting and developed plotlines.It just really lacks in character development and relationships I was able to mostly ignore this is Pawn, but it became such a glaring problem in Captive that it really ruined the book for me Knox is the only character is has serious development and a clear and true purpose with this series Despite his privilege, he really truly wants to change the world for the better, even if he has to make some morally ambiguous decisions in order to achieve it every now and then Kitty, our supposed protagonist, actually really is nothan a pawn in all of this even if she feels the need to state otherwise every freaking chapter The only change she has made within this series thus far, the only relevant things she has actually done, have all been by Knox s direction She read all of the speeches because Knox encouraged her to She killed Augusta because Knox had to give her the incentive view spoiler she attended maybe a few Blackcoat meetings and even noted that she had no idea how everything worked and was basically useless Knox had to coaz her into continuing to be Lila and then had to make the back up plan of faking Benjy s death for when Kitty inevitably fucked everything up hide spoiler Honestly, literally any girl could take Kitty s place and nothing would change Except maybe if it had been a different girl, this girl wouldn t be so intent on fucking everything up all the time And what s stupid is Kitty s lack of regard for anyone else but her and Benjy I m supposed to believe that she cares about the rest of humanity when she is always so quick to run away from everything just so she can be with her boyfriend If she really cared she would actually listen to Knox for once and not intentionally keep secrets and go behind his back just so she can have blackmail The only thing that makes Kitty even ounce relevant to this entire story is the fact that she was masked to look like Lila view spoiler and because she is the real Daxton s daughter apparently hide spoiler What I m basically saying is this series would have been better off just being written in Knox s point of view Basically Review posted on The Eater of Books blog Captive by Aimee CarterBook Two of the Blackcoat Rebellion seriesPublisher Harlequin TEENPublication Date November 25,

Blackcoat Rebellion seriesPublisher Harlequin TEENPublication Date November 25, 2014Rating 3 starsSource eARC from NetGalleySummary from Goodreads For the past two months, Kitty Doe s life has been a lie Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister s niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fianc cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the darkthan ever But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she s accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear Elsewhere A prison where no one can escape As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she ll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price What I Liked This book was interesting As far as sequels go, it was okay, and definitely functioned well as a sequel It extended the plot of the series, and raised the stakes, and ended kind of crazily I don t think it was as good as the first book, but I enjoyed the ride, can t wait to read the final novel.Kitty wants to dofor the Rebellion, but Knox has been holding her back When she is caught in a precarious position by Daxton, she is taken to Elsewhere, which is basically like modern day jail with insane practices There is a cage where two people who have broken rules fight to the death The place is dangerous, and so are the people in charge like wardens Kitty has been given special privileges to live with the Mercers wardens , but she refuses No where is safe and no one can be trusted so how will Kitty help the Rebellion Things in this book didn t really start to get crazy until Kitty was taken to Elsewhere Then, I was really hooked It takes a while to get to this point, which is one of the reasons why I gave this one three stars But once Kitty gets into Elsewhere, I wanted to know how she would escape obviously, she has to escape , where Benjy was, how Knox fit into everything, what secrets Kitty s past held so much to be discovered Carter definitely raised the stakes in this novel We find out that Kitty s Masking into Lila was no random act Kitty s past is significant, and she was not chosen randomly We find out who really sides with who, who betrays who, who can be trusted Even in the ending, I was still skeptical of certain people and their alliances.I like Kitty a lot in this book She is put into awful situations, especially in Elsewhere, and yet, she holds it together and finds a way to get what she wants, to stay sane, to fight I liked what Carter did with the romance in book one, I was worried about a love triangle, but I don t REALLY see one happening not really.Overall, this was a good sequel novel Some things bothered me, so keep reading What I Did Not Like It took a while for me to warm up to this one Kitty was sent to Elsewhere that s when I sat up and took notice But it took some time to get there, so I was a bit bored in the beginning I seriously wanted to put the book down and take a nap.Towards the end, I wasn t entirely sure why Kitty froze up like she did, and didn t shoot, um, certain people It s not like an execution, where she has the duty to shoot someone No, she s hiding somewhere, and watching a man hurt someone she cares about why not just shoot him Why stare at the scene in the shadows, when it s him, the person, and Kitty You have a pretty good chance to hitting him, and rescuing the person Why didn t she think to do so The new setting Elsewhere was cool, but it really shut out what was happening in the outside world This is where dual perspectives could have come in handy alas.Finally, I didn t like this one as much as I liked book one, and I gave book one four stars, so this one is getting three stars If that makes sense.Would I Recommend It If you enjoyed book one, then you ll enjoy this one for sure It s a good sequel, and I have no regrets it was definitely worth the time I want to read on Too bad the next book won t be out for another year.Rating 3.5 stars rounded down to 3 stars Not bad Hopefully the conclusion to this trilogy is seriously epic I can t wait Captive was a crazy, intense book with one Oh, crap moment after the next While I enjoyed Pawn, I had several issues with it, so I was uncertain about moving forward with the series But I m so, so glad I did Captive kept me on the edge of my seat and refused to stop messing with my head until the very last page.I m still really not a fan of Kitty In Pawn, she was boring and passive, which was bad But in Captive, she either said she wanted to help, then backed out and refused at the last Captive was a crazy, intense book with one Oh, crap moment after the next While I enjoyed Pawn, I had several issues with it, so I was uncertain about moving forward with the series But I m so, so glad I did Captive kept me on the edge of my seat and refused to stop messing with my head until the very last page.I m still really not a fan of Kitty In Pawn, she was boring and passive, which was bad But in Captive, she either said she wanted to help, then backed out and refused at the last minute OR she tried to take matters into her own hands and that got her into a LOT of trouble Seriously, I get that it s hard for her to trust people, but every time she opened her mouth or tried to help, she ended up getting someone killed or she ruined a perfectly crafted plan I just wanted to grab her, shake her and smack her Not necessarily in that order I definitely think she matured a lot by the end of Captive, but she still has a long way to go.I m still not a fan of Benjy as a love interst, either I usually go for the best friend or the underdog in love triangles, but I just can t see them together I really can t When I picture them, I really do just see him as her friend and nothingI still ship Kitty and Knox Knox was frustrating in this book, though Oh, man, was I annoyed with him I don t quite remember Knox and Kitty hating each other that much in Pawn, but they sure were at each other s throats in Captive Their batter was, at times, hilarious At other times, it was frustrating beyond belief But the way things endedWe met a lot of new characters in Captive Some that stood out were Scotia, Noelle, Mercer and Hannah, to name a few It s REALLY hard to discuss these characters without spoilers, though I will say this those I thought were trust worthy, weren t and those that I didn t trust, surprised me If that makes sense without being too spoilery I think that was my biggest issue with Captive It was very back and forth with the Trust this person No, don t Actually, you can Wait, never mind, don t It made me dizzy Some of the fake outs annoyed me, too There were just too many of them When you read the book cause you should , you ll know what I mean.Despite my annoyance with all the deception and lies, I will say that those deceptions and lies kept me on my toes and constantly wondering guessing cursing I had the worst time figuring out who to trust and who would be revealed as a traitor Everything Kitty did, everyone she spoke to, I was leery that she was putting her trust in the wrong person and she did, several timesElsewhere was brutal More brutal than we were led to believe in Pawn When I say this book was intense, I mean it And the sections in Elsewhere were the most intense It was just an epic bloodbath which, honestly, was sad but realistic In most YA books that deal with revolutions and over throwing governments, everyone miraculously gets out alive Sometimes, there are small casualties with secondary characters, but not with anyone we ve grown to like or love But Aimee Carter didn t hold back at all in Captive and people even ones you wouldn t expect were killed and sacrificed My heart still aches for some of those loses.The most important thing with Captive It never felt like Second Book Syndrome Only once, for one small section of the book Otherwise, it was crazy good better than Pawn and full of intense action and craziness And the revelations Holy crap, the second half of the book was so riddled with revelations and shocking twists, I could barely turn a page without being shocked and surprised There were several revelations, especially, that I m very excited to see unfold in the next book.Despite some issues I had with Captive, I m really glad I read it While Pawn was enjoyable, Captive was epic I m so glad I didn t give up on this series and I m really excited to see what happens in the third and final book, Queen though 2015 is a long way off I have no idea how I ll make it to 2015 So yeah, if you couldn t tell, I definitely recommend Captive If you haven t read Pawn, I say go for it Binge Pawn and Captive And if you read Pawn and were unsure if you wanted to continue on with the series, I highly recommend you give Captive a chance It might surprise you You can also findfrom me on my blog Pandora s Books To see review with gifs click here.If it wasn t for Kitty and her stupid

Though the caste set up is a little cliche for YA dystopias, I like the twists and little quirks that Carter gives it.Okay, it s true that some of the twists and turns of the plot go into soap opera territory, but for the most part it really works Well in fact I liked the fact that it was over the top I think this was in part because Carter embraced the soap opera ness of the plot.If it wasn t embraced well, that aspect of the book wouldn t work.Now, I have to go into what bothered me about this book.Kitty.Kitty Kitty Kitty.It seems she lost her brain and then some in this installment To be honest, I was never terribly fond of this character, but rather than growing on me like I hoped she would, she did the opposite.That s sad on so many levels.I think what bothered me the most about Kitty was that every stupid decision had absolutely no logic to back it up If anything, it just served as a plot point This character really had no sense of self preservation whatsoever.I understand having a character make rash decisions to move the plot forward, but I do believe there should be some element of logic to it Here, I did not see the logic Kitty just was dumb and acted dumb, despite being warned.In a lot of ways, this is similar to Carter s earlier series, The Goddess Test In that series, I felt that the character was a lot different in the later books of the series than in the beginning Some of the choices that the character made were so flabbergastingly stupid that it ruined the series for me.The one good thing about Captive is that it had such a strong plot, that Kitty s actions didn t quite ruin the book for me But it was close.I just had to keep reminding myself that she was just a plot device.And after awhile, it just got a little eye roll worthy.Kitty s stupidity aside, the only one problem I had with this book was its ship.It bores me.I m sorry.Benjy that name, I always think of that cute little terrier not a hunky ginger is so dull, I can not really get a sense of what his character is other than a Kitty lusting object.He s a lot like Henry the hero in Carter s other series.Isn t it odd that I keep comparing these two series But I do think their faults are so similarIt s really sad that I want Kitty with the douche end of the supposed triangle well, calling it a triangle might be a bit of a stretch The thing is, at least The Douche Knox for those of you not up on the MJ lingo is an actual character who has faults I think the best way to describe him is that he s a bit like Batman In the fact, that he sometimes acts like an emotionless douche in the quest for justice.That s sort of how Knox is.And like Batman, every decision he makes even if it s douchey and stupid, is for the common good And okay, it sort of makes him an intriguing character But even though I want Koxthan Bitty, well, I ll admit it really wouldn t work.It would be like Harley Quinn getting together with Batman.Though, come to think of it Harley is a lot smarter than Kitty.The point is, I just don t see it happening Even though he s a far superior character than Hot Ginger.Much like with Carter s first series, the second installment of The Blackcoat rebellion, is a bit of a disappointment While the world building in this series might ve been an improvement from her last series, the poor characterizations that made The Goddess Test series fail for me continue to exist here This review was originally posted on Between My LinesPawn was my favourite dystopian book of 2013 and I couldn t wait to dive into Captive I don t think it was quite as shocking as I was anticipating the twists but I still really enjoyed it My quick summary of this book is I loved the pace and the action but I wasn t overly attached to the characters apart from Kitty First Line of Captive by Aimee Carter Somewhere nearby, Benjy was waiting for me Things I loved abo This review was originally posted on Between My LinesPawn was my favourite dystopian book of 2013 and I couldn t wait to dive into Captive I don t think it was quite as shocking as I was anticipating the twists but I still really enjoyed it My quick summary of this book is I loved the pace and the action but I wasn t overly attached to the characters apart from Kitty First Line of Captive by Aimee Carter Somewhere nearby, Benjy was waiting for me Things I loved about Captive The political intrigue I never knew who to trust so I decided to trust no one which was maybe a move Kitty should have considered Even now two books in I still KNOW there will be shocks ahead in this series I love that I m kept guessing and that the characters are experts at ducking and diving through lots of plot twists.Kitty AKA Fake Lila I can t deny Kitty is a little naive and should be a littlewary when it comes to letting her guard down But I still admire her so much She is a fighter and willing to stand up for what she believes in no matter what the consequences She is also doggedly loyal and I love that she doesn t allow herself to be used no matter how much those around her want to do just that Plus she is pretty flawed between being indecisive and a little innocent but that only makes her evenrounded I m a fan The pace It s relentless There are changes of setting, new characters, a battle, conspiracy theories and lotsto keep you on your toes I read it over a 24 hour period as I just raced through it.Elsewhere What a setting It is horrifically brutal and a pretty rotten place to be a captive as life is considered worthless there.The sex scene I thought it was refreshingly honest and was one of the few times where I was happy about Kitty and Benjy being together It felt sweet and a little embarrassing to read about which seemed appropriate Somethings that I didn t love so much about Captive The bland romance I had this issue in book one and I still have it here I just don t get the feels from Kitty and Benjy I feel like I m being told that they love each other but I can t buy into it, they feel boring and settled and I definitely getof a friends vibe of them Now Kitty and Knox, I think there might be sparks there The history We still don t get enough detail on how this world developed It is eluded to but not really explained as to how people bought into such a horrific have and have nots society The world building is full of originality but I d love to see this addressed and developed in book 3.Overall this is a very readable dystopian series I really like Aimee s style of writing and the fast and furious pace of the book And I m normallyof a fan of character driven books but all the twists here keep me invested I can t wait to see what happens in the next book Who should read Captive by Aimee Carter I d recommend this series to fans of YA dystopian novels especially if you like them full of originality and twists Fans of the The Progam by Suzanne Young or The Jewel by Amy Ewing should also like this one.Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin UK for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review Well, this series continues to surprise me I didn t expect to love Pawn, and I did I expected a bit of a sequel slump, and there certainly isn t one Captive was absolutely as action packed and horrifying as its predecessor The story does take a few chapters to really take off, but I was fine with that because I appreciated the little snippets of recap they were placed well, it didn t feel like a recap, but it definitely did the trick to help me refamiliarize myself with Kitty s world.The Well, this series continues to

bad Yes, I know it was expected to be awful, but nope, Aimee Carter took it to a whole new level of evil I did not see a lot of the twists surrounding Elsewhere coming, which was really great in itself And reading about the history, the people, their lives it was so worth it The plot Yes, the plot was very fast paced, very anticipatory Lots of twists, and lots of trying to figure out who were the good guys , trying to figure out who was even who if you ve read Pawn, you know that masking is very shady business, and Captive takes it to a new level I had no idea Maybe I still don t Guess I have to wait to find out The new characters Not even the characters themselves, because Kitty is quite frustrating sometimes, but just all the new people that are introduced It makes for a really strong book, because you ll find yourself in sincere empathy one minute, and abhorrence the next There are a lot of characters to feel for, and a lot of characters to hate, and it makes for a book chock full of suspense Kitty and Knox I enjoy them, I do Even though Kitty is mind numbingly frustrating at times, she really is caring and loyal and has a lot of good qualities It is easy to root for her As for Knox, I have just always enjoyed his character I love his frustration with Kitty, especially in the beginning of the book when she is refusing to listen to him They argue like an eighty year old couple, and I find it fun Of course, Knox is all over the place in this book, and I was never sure if he was trustworthy after a certain point I think I know where he stands now, but come on, there s another book, anything can happen The Meh Because none of it was bad Benjy Oh Benjy, why you here Seriously, Benjy is one of the most useless characters I have come across I feel exactly nothing toward him I almost wished I hated him, because at least there d be some emotional stirrage I get that Kitty has known him forever but there is no chemistry, just familiarity Kitty earns her III Seriously, I know why homegirl didn t get higher on her test now, because she does some really dumb stuff under pressure Likely just as she did on her test, because wow I mean, I know some people freeze up in the heat of the moment, can t make decisions, make the wrong ones, etc., but she has to get it together if she is going to save anyone, herself included Bottom Line Very good as a book, great as a sequel I absolutely can t wait for Queen based on the events of this book.This review was originally posted on It Starts at Midnight For the past two months, Kitty Doe s life has been a lie
