Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

34499221Short synopsis: Its just basically the little mermaid.

Initial Thoughts: I was so indifferent to this book, I didn’t care about anyone in the entire story or the story for that matter.

Characters: 1 – Yeah, like I said I didn’t care.

Plot: 2 –  This was a very slow book, I kept waiting and waiting for something to happen and of course it does in a rush in the last 50 or so pages.

Writing: 2 – The writing itself was not bad, but if you are going to have dual perspectives maybe have the characters be different enough that I didn’t have to keep flipping back to see whose POV I was reading.

Originality: 2 – Look I like a good re-telling but literally the characters even looked like Ariel and Eric.

Predictability: 2 – Have you seen the Little Mermaid…

Romance: 1 –   I did not get this at all.  When exactly did they fall in love, oh yeah I didn’t care!

World Building: 3 – Though this was decent, I still didn’t really get a sense of what these kingdoms looked like.

Overall: 2


Just go watch the Little Mermaid.
