Fighting (Cat Pheonix): Review

18250437

 

Alex is an independent twenty one year old college drop out and reformed thief when she meets Brooks. He wants her to join his team of thieves who fight to avenge the innocent, the wronged. Skeptical, she thinks he’s cracked and needs to be taken back to the mental facility he’d broken out of.

Eventually, just for kicks and giggles, she lets Brooks convince her to take a chance on him. Her world is flipped upside down as she identifies with and comes to care for her new crew, except for the one man she loathes: Ethan. God, what an arrogant bastard. As Alex changes, so do her feelings for Ethan. Alex fights more than just her attraction to Ethan as they are bound together in a fight to survive.

When Alex and her crew’s lives are endangered, will she run away or stand up and fight?

2.5 stars

The summary of this book intrigued me. But I was still very unsure when I began reading this book. It was quite slow in the first few pages, but then it picks up speed.

Alex is the typical badass heroine, with whom I couldn’t relate. Ethan, was great, but he had his flaws. But Ollie, darling sweet Ollie, twelve year old geek working for Brooks- he was why I read this book and gave it an extra star.

Alex and Ethan’s fights in the beginning are kind of illogical and unnecessary. I understand Ethan was meant to be kind of Four-ish, but no one can be Four. *smirks*

The storyline was a bit weak, it could have had a better collection of events with that unique concept. BUt it wasnt boring either, so I guess it was okay.

The end was very very stretched, and very predictable and anti-climactic. I expected atleast SOMETHING to happen.

Overall, its an okay read, which you can read if you have nothing else to read.
