Hello everyone! So, a couple days ago, This Cruel Design* by Emily Suvada – book two to This Mortal Coil – was released out into the bookish wild! I reviewed This Mortal Coil then, and now can’t wait to have you read my review of This Cruel Design which I loved more than Mortal Coil! Now, because the synopsis for TCD is spoilers for TMC, I will just link to the book’s Goodreads page for you to check out! PS. it sounds AWESOME!!! Now, let’s get into my (non-spoilery) review……
It was SOOOOOOO much better than This Mortal Coil!!! I absolutely loved it!! Let me tell you why….
Characters (A+): Within TCD, we are introduced to some new-ish characters (not explaining the ish for spoiler reasons) and of course, with them, comes new problems and relationships/chemistry basically heating up/exploding and it was all just sooooo fantastic!!! All the new personalities and experiences and pasts that we see in the book were just so intriguing and I legit could not put down this book. ALSO, my favourite character is officially Mato and I just want to draw him all the time and love him forever and UGH THIS MAN definitely one of my fave characters ever!!!
Plot (A+): This book explores some of the plot surprises/cliffhanger that came up in TMC and then introduced a whole lot more awesomeness to it with the new characters, each of which came with very fiery personalities and pasts so it was spectacular to watch the collision of tech, genetics, design, characters etc and I was so mesmerized! Like I said before, I could not put this book down! Seriously, it felt like I had a third arm or something because every time I wasn’t able to read This Cruel Design, it felt like I had lost something important and every time I had the book in my hands and could read, gosh, it was like I was in heaven and I was complete and happy! Also, a criticism I had with This Mortal Coil was that, sometimes, it felt like the genetics parts went over my head a bit or at least took more time to understand to the point of having to read parts a couple times over. With This Cruel Design, though, I felt like things were better explained and discussed in a way that made sense and still felt like it was a part of the plot/within character! I also might have been more used to the terminology/concepts maybe, but overall, I felt like I understood more.
All in all, This Cruel Design* was absolutely BRILLIANT! The characters were spectacular and intriguing, and the plot was simply explosive! I could not recommend this book to you guys more, pleaseeeee read it! Especially if you weren’t as fond of This Mortal Coil…..TCD is a million times better!!! Anyways, have you guys read This Cruel Design yet? If so, what did you think and who is your favourite character? Let me know in the comments below!! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!!!
