I received a free copy of this book from RHCP via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. This does not affect my review/opinions in any way. Thank you RHCP and NetGalley!
Having wanted to read one of Pass' works for ages, I jumped at the chance of reading The Fearless. I dived straight into it; and it definitely didn't disappoint.
The scrapbook pieces and emails to begin with were really interesting, and the prologue was already full of adrenaline. The first line of the book - " 'When I was ten, the world ended.' " - is sharp, shocking and starts the story off so well.
Pass explains each characters' history and personality in such depth that I felt like I had known them all my life. The description throughout is also amazing; threaded with emotion and beautifully detailed.
Because of their isolation to the world, there isn't much of our world there. Pass puts in a lot of little relateable references to our world, which I really liked.
" '...I'd give anything... those burgers that had cheese and bacon on it.' "
Cass wasn't an unlikeable protagonist, and I really liked Myo and Sol too. The elements of romance were cute, too!
I, ultimately, loved this book. The characters, world and plotline were all excellent and I only had one small complaint.
