5 amazing stars!
Captivating tale of adventure and mystery, narrated by a leading lady with sharp wit and a backbone.
Extraordinary world-building and word-crafting; ‘Gambit’ captivated and intrigued me from the very first chapter. Denault’s superior writing style was a joy to read! This book was very tough to put down and yet it was over far too soon; its 550+ pages flowed smoothly. Can’t wait to re-read ‘Gambit’ before diving into book 2 in the Prodigy Chronicles!
The complex and developed characters were the best part of this book; their motives, their secrets, their interactions. Denault’s characters kept me guessing right until the cliff-hanger ending; not a bit was predictable. The plot moved forward at a comfortably steady pace, never a dull moment, and nothing felt rushed or forced.
A must-read for fans of well-written YA romance/adventure/dystopia with developed characters and settings. A must-read for most readers! (I don’t usually enjoy dystopia, but ‘Gambit’ was amazing!
Thanks to NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
