Book Review: Nameless (Broken City #1) By Jessica Sorensen

Nameless (Broken City Book 1) - Jessica Sorensen

 

A Note: I schedule all my reviews months in advance and at the time of reading this book and writing this review there was no mention that it was a reverse harem story in the title or in the description of this novel.

 

This was quite a short book and I don't know how to feel about it. It was overall entertaining, but it wasn't mind-blowing. It was exactly what I was looking for at the time though.

 

I liked Allura as a character. She tries to be strong but she's not there yet. She makes up for that with intelligence and a little spunk. I'm curious as to what she is and it's complications in future books.

 

I liked the three men that rescued her, though I couldn't tell them apart for the life of me. They were all helpful and sweet to her, but no one left a lasting impression on me. I hope that changes in the other books in this series.

 

I found out, a little too late, that apparently this is a reverse-harem series (I.E. one girl, multiple guys). There was nothing romantic in this novel, which made me happy because reverse-harem stories aren't my thing. I'm hesitant to continue on in this series after finding that out, though the author doesn't mention it anywhere. I'm just confused at this point. Overall though this was an interesting book and the story was set up well.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"You need to understand that some humans are equally as evil (...)."

 

"People wander out there, searching for something better, and never find it."

 

"That's the problem with legends. While sometimes they hold a hint of truth, it's hard to sort through all that nonsense."
