I want to talk about this book entitled The Book of Ivy. It’s a post-apocalyptic book written by Amy Engel.
The book of Ivy is a story in which two families – the Lattimers and the Westfalls – oppose each other. Ivy is a Westfall and to keep the appearance of peace she must marry Bishop Lattimer. But she hates him and she has the mission to kill him after their wedding but the tag line says “ born to betray and made to kill … will be she have the strength?” . Isn’t it like a premonition ?
I love the first book but the sequel ( the Revolution of Ivy ) is a little too long. But it’s a interesting book with suspense and reversals of situation. The heroine is not perfect, it’s very appealing. The two main characters are really different and it creates strange situations but despite the number of dead I find it’s a beautiful story. Ivy is a warrior, she faces her family and society alone but she never gives up and when she feels alone she can count on Bishop and it’s a beautiful sign of confidence even if she is supposed to kill him. It shows that a relation can evolve from hate to love. It’s a symbol of hope and for me it’s very important because without hope we can’t do anything and Ivy never loses hope.
It’s not unbiased but I think it’s really a book to read!
