Heart of Iron : review

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

*e-ARC kindly provided by the publisher HarperCollins in exchange for an honest review!*

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 and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09 - one of the last remaining illegal Metals - has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.

Stars: ✦✦✦✦.25
So as usual, I'll tell 4.25 things I liked about the book and 0.75 thing I didn't like.

So what did I think?

First of all I loved Geekerella by Ashley Poston last year and secondly:
robots, space, royalty and battles? What's not to love?
Oh and also it's a retelling of Anastasia. Just throwing that out there - I was excited to dig in.

+1 | The idea. It's new yet old: there's the retelling aspect, but at the same time everything is totally new

+1 | The worldthe sci-fi features were fascinating and refreshing

+1 | Characters: some feisty, funny and adorable. The main character goes for what she wants, and the romances were well plotted out even if predictable

+1 | Gripping: it started with a bang and the action just kept on going.
Also Poston cleverly gave us just enough answers to keep the ever growing questions at bay

-0.75  |  Along the lines of the first point: the retelling brought the problem of expected plot twists,
but the writing was beautiful | +0.25

Bonus tip: Droid Serif is a great font on kindle!

Read on lovelies,
