Heart of Iron kindle Ñ eBook 9780062652850 Free ☆ [PDF / Epub] ☀ Heart of Iron Author Ashley Poston – Eyltransferservices.co.uk Seventeen year old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09 Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain anUn Now their entire kingdom is after them and the coordinates and not everyone wants them captured aliveWhat they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their lives and unearth dangerous secrets But when a darkness from Ana’s past returns she must face an impossible choice does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves First of all I gotta say the writing style was SO FUN The author knows how to insert maximum personality into every POV I'm seriously impressed her way of getting into deep POV felt so natural and fun I'm going to keep the rest of this review short I was drawn in by the pitch Anastasia in space Like why not? Anastasia is my fav childhood movie That also means the bar was high So I liked the story but I kept searching for Dimitri and never found him Also Ana was only one POV out of four Kinda bummed about that BUT there were lots of other fun new charactersThere really was lots to admire here I loved the references to the Romanovs and how the whole Anastasia backstory was developed I loved the new characters Robb was my favorite because smol prince as well as the sassy pirate But I felt like I didn't connect as much to Anastasia and the Dimitri character was a metal robot boy I mean he was super sweet but again Dimitri from the cartoon was like my fav so I missed that whole hate to love romance though there is a hate to love between another coupleEither way everyone should totally check this out even if its just to study how fun and pacey the writing was The world was super fun too I'm not normally into sci fi but I loved how this was a bit of a sci fifantasy blendMy Blog Instagram Twitter Etsy

ePub Î Heart of Iron ñ Ashley Poston

Te effort to save D09 leads her on a uest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers But at the last moment a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep themWhen everything goes wrong she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the r When I heard this retelling of Anastasia was releasing it immediately piued my interest – even so once I heard there was a humanrobot love story because uh what? – so I was incredibly excited to check this one out There are some fun uniue ideas at play here which is crucial for a retelling but unfortunately there’s also uite a bit to unpack I found myself trudging through this book and almost DNFed it several times but I ultimately decided to finish it so that I could review it properly “To those who set sail into the night may the stars keep them steady”“And the iron keep them safe”→ world building story telling ←What could’ve been this book’s greatest strength ended up being its biggest flaw while the writing itself isn’t bad it feels inexperienced and the world building leaves a lot to be desired There are so many fantastically cool ideas thrown into play such as a character who can see a person’s fate if he touches them – but we’re constantly left wondering why his people used to see fates why they can no longer use their powers why he is the last of them and so on We’re given a thread with nowhere to follow it toIt was than a promise – it was an oath Unbreakable Strong like iron and steady like starsLikewise there’s a running theme throughout the book in which people swear “on iron and stars” and this is described as some sort of unbreakable vow but we never learn why it is so important what magic surrounds this particular phrase to enforce it or what would happen to a person who broke their vow Despite it being such an important notion it is tossed around constantly and very uickly loses any form of impactFinally my two biggest complaints about the writing1 There are too many different perspectives to cycle through There are four narrators in this story and it is not executed well2 There is a lot of senseless death in this book It’s not a matter of violent content – this book isn’t one I’d consider particularly brutal – but it’s a matter of the fact that most of the deaths were rash sudden and pointless By the end it felt like they were being written in for shock value which uickly becomes cheapNo He did not want Could not want But he did He wanted so badly to exist a little longer beside her→ Ana Di ←Two of our main characters are the infamous humanrobot duo I mentioned Ana the human girl and D09 or Di the robot I know the entire idea of this coupling feels really gross to a lot of people I’ve spoken to about this book and I can see why but for me personally it was the most interesting aspect of the story From the start Di is capable of sentient thought and emotion than any of the other Metals robots in their world and he only grows and human like as the story progresses My favorite part of the entire story by far was watching him learn how to cope with human emotions and desires Side note here he also has a sidekick in the form of a little bot named EOS who Di affectionately calls his can opener and this little bot is somehow the best part of the entire book He’s preciousHer heart beat and his wires hummed and they were Ana and Di – and there were no words for thatAna on the other hand is a far less interesting narrator It’s not that she’s bad problematic offensive or unlikeable she’s just boring There’s nothing complex to her and she is never really fleshed out She’s self contradicting – especially in the ending to an infuriating degree – and never feels like a narrator Despite it being her story she never held the spotlightIf he believed in the Moon Goddess he’d be praying right now He’d be praying really really hard And he’d be praying something like Merciful Goddess if you exist please hand my ass to me some other day I don’t want to die I haven’t kissed Jax yet→ Robb ←When it comes to the main narrators and their respective levels of interesting complex personalities Robb is sadly not far above Ana on my list Again there’s nothing to dislike about him but there’s nothing to like either He has the potential for an incredibly sad intriguing back story with his search for his missingpresumed dead father and his over bearing and abusive mother or even his terrifying big brother but it felt like we were only ever allowed to skim the surface of any of these intriguing things Robb’s character is the main aspect that makes me think had this book been limited to one or even two narrators it would’ve been so much better because with the constant switching we just didn’t really get to know anyone very wellAll fates in the universe connected in a river and that river flowed only one way→ Jax ←Finally what seems to be the fan favorite of the narrators Jax the Solani pilot with stars in his veins Jax was a major redeeming uality in this book for me until we reached a point where we got to spend very little time with him and the time we did get to spend with him was mostly used up on repetitive mooning over another character While the romance Jax finds himself in is cute it’s also fairly insta lovey which put a damper on the entire couple for me That said Jax is a really fun and enjoyable character and if I had to pick any one character who I would’ve liked to have read this entire story through the singular perspective of it would be a toss up between D09Di and this guy“I’ll always come back for you” she whispered reaching up on her tiptoes to press her forehead against his cool metal one “I promise you on iron and stars”→ diversity ←There is one positive note that I can’t finish this review without touching on and that’s the diverse cast of characters we get to meet throughout the story Not only is there a main gay couple there’s also a lesbian side couple and they are fantastic – could we please have seen of them? Multiple characters are described as being people of color and there’s even some disability rep All of my issues with the story itself pushed aside I genuinely appreciate how normalized Ashley Poston made all of these diverse characters feel in the context of their world“Because I will follow you anywhere” he insisted “To the ends of the galaxy if I have to I want to exist where you exist and that is enough”→ final thoughts ←At the end of the day I really wanted to enjoy this book but I had to look at it honestly and admit that it was a 2 star read for me I considered rounding up to 3 for the sake of the diverse rep but the fact that it took me over a month to trudge through what should’ve been a really uick read made it impossible for me to justify upping my rating If you enjoy sci fi and Anastasia retellings or normalized diverse rep in the YA SFF field I would say to pick this up and give it a try As for me I do own a copy of another of Ashley’s books but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to pick it upI have no idea if this book is a series starter or a standalone as it totally feels like a series starter but at the time that I’m writing this review I haven’t heard anything about it continuing as a series I personally absolutely hated the cliffhanger ending of this book and will not be picking up any seuels All uotes are taken from an ARC and may not match the finished publication Thank you to Balzer Bray for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest reviewYou can find this review and on my blog or you can follow me on twitter bookstagram or facebook
