{Birthday Giveaway} The Continent by Keira Drake

Book Summary:
For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two nations remain perpetually locked in combat. Most citizens lucky enough to tour the Continent do so to observe the spectacle and violence of battle, a thing long vanished in the peaceful realm of the Spire. For Vaela, the war holds little interest. As a smart and talented apprentice cartographer and a descendent of the Continent herself, she sees the journey as a dream come true: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But Vaela’s dream all too quickly turns to nightmare as the journey brings her face-to-face with the brutal reality of a war she’s only read about. Observing from the safety of a heli-plane, Vaela is forever changed by the sight of the bloody battle being waged far beneath her. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, Vaela finds herself much closer to danger than she’d ever imagined—and with an entirely new perspective as to what war truly means. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

My Review:

The Continent is a trip of a lifetime. A beautiful place to explore and see from afar.

This book was such an fantastic read. I thought this was such an original story. Something I never read before. I’m glad I gave this book a chance. It was hard reading the struggles the main character had to go through, but I did like her in the book. It very detailed world that drew me.

Vaela has such an creative nature in the book. Wanted to see the world around her. For her birthday she gets a trip of a lifetime. When and accident happens, leaving her alone in the wild of The Continent. Facing so many dangers and trying to stay alive alone. Will Vaela find a way home again?

Thought this book was a fast pace read. I enjoy watching Vaela grow and learn new things. This book is good for those who looking for something new and adventurous.

I’m giving away a new paperback copy of the book for my birthday.

  1. So far this year, my favorite read has to be The Folk and Air Series along with Wicked Saints and The Beckoning Shadow. This reading year has been good to me! XD

  2. Happy birthday! I cannot wait to read this one! I think most of my favorite reads have been graphic novels if I’m being honest. Either Revival, Snotgirl, or Rat Queens. Non graphic novels I enjoyed Small Spaces, Alone by Cyn Balog, and Freefall by Jessica Barry.

  3. Happy Birthday! I have already read so many great books this year. I guess the one that really stands out though is The Castle on the Rise by Kristy Cambron. This is the second book in the series, so the first one, The Lost Castle, is awesome as well.
