generic hero with perfect hair, unusual eyes, and supernatural powers goes adventuring with generic 11/10 girl who denies her own usefulness, beauty, strengths, and overall worth, despite being the only capable or likable character in the book. Anyway, our heroes are hunting down generic outlaw gangsters who are not good. Why are they not good? Because they're bad. Also, it's not their fault that they're scarred, but they're still very bad. In fact, they're still bad when it's revealer a major character is related to their leader. Then, they're actually good guys! Who could have seen this twist coming! The real bad guys were hiding in plain sight the whole time! And the real bad guys ARE BAD! BECAUSE THEY'RE BAD! AND ARE EVIL WITH NO MOTIVATION OTHER THAN HAVING EVIL CORES! AHAHAHAHAHH!
The only good bit about this book is the worldbuilding, and that's average. Read if you read Hunger Games and are looking for a subsea, suboptimal, sub-piloting thrill ride. If the tiny teacups in the corner of some off-brand amusement park are a thrill ride.
My personal favorite. It blends action, romance, subplots, and coming of age into a very good book. The only complaint I have is that the main character is kind of overpowered in combat, but that's the point. 12/10
