The other day I finished my book at work, and because I didn't have my other book on me, that I already was reading, I decided to pick up the short but sweet The Queen's Army by Marissa Meyer, which is #1.5 in the Lunar Chronicles Series! I've had this one sitting on my Kindle for quite some time, so this was the perfect excuse to finally read it! (Not that I need an excuse to read, it's just finding the time to read all these awesome books!)
It is time. The boy must leave his family to serve in the Queen's army. To be chosen is an honor. To decline is impossible. The boy is modified. He is trained for several years, and learns to fight to the death. He proves to the Queen—and to himself—that he is capable of evil. He is just the kind of soldier the Queen wants: the alpha of his pack.
Like I said above, this one was short and sweet! Z was a great character! You saw his vulnerability when he was taken from his family and being trained. Readers and fans of the Lunar Chronicles will see that not all Lunars are completely accepting of what is going on with the Queen and her building an army.
Definitely one to check out! I'm not sure if it is still available through Amazon or Barnes and Noble, but you should be able to find it online! :)
