There’s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,
Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.
There’s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
She’s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.
“I was not stolen.
I was saved.”
I don’t even have to hesitate for one second when I say this: Insolent is Cynthia’s best writing to date. I don’t know if it’s because of the genre or if it’s because of the POV that it’s written in, but the writing flowed so poetically and sharply I couldn’t help but love it. With good writing comes vivid settings. And with vivid settings comes characters with depth. Check, check, and check!
This isn’t a book that I would typically read but when it was all said and done, I was so glad I took the time to read it in all of it’s beauty. The characters were vigilant and strong but also heartbreaking. You couldn’t help but to FEEL them and feel for them. I think that speaks volumes about an authors writing.
If you’re a fan of incredibly haunting third person writing (seriously, I am so impressed by this), vivid and poignant characters, and falling in love when you least expect it (swoon!), then you need to pick up Insolent. Whether you know story the retelling is of, I can promise that you will have a great experience reading this one and it will be different from anything you have read before.
