Book Review: Heart of Iron: Ashley Poston

DeDear reader I couldn’t sleep so I finished reading “Heart of Iron” book number one in the “Heart of Iron” series by Ashley Poston.  I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because I had heard a lot about it and because it seemed interesting. My personal review of the book is as follows:

When I read the synopsis of the storyline I immediately thought of “Jonny-5” (My personal all time favorite robot character) and thought this story might give me some of the same feelings however(and I am trying to explain things without giving away plot points) so many times chapters would end and a plot twist would happen and I would feel like we as readers were starting a new story which left me personally feeling annoyed.

The politics of the world beyond the Anastasia elements could have been explained and dealt with a whole lot better(In my personal opinion). I feel like the “2nd villan”‘s storyline would have been better used if introduced within the next book in the series(trying to avoid spoilers so it might not make sense).

I also personally felt some cool “Guardians of the Galaxy” vibes however the plot kept going in different directions and taking away from the feeling.

I feel like this story would make some amazing TV show episodes on the CW TV Network. It really reminded me of the show “Star-Crossed”, If you like the show you might want to check out this book. I loved the romantic plotlines, I almost wish that they could have had their own books.

The very last part of the storyline gave me very strong “Red Queen” series vibes. Overall I personally rate this book a 4 and half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader ☺.
