    The Continent kindle × Hardcover The ContinentI received an arc copy of this book on a giveaway so I spent no money and I still want a refund or a brain wipe to erase it from my memory The inside cover has a small scrawl from Kiera Drake saying that she hopes I enjoy my “trip to the continent” Sorry to say I very much did not enjoy it I basically spent a couple of hours reading almost every racist stereotype in existence DEAR GOD how was this even published?There are two warring sides of this book The Topi based on Native Americans and the Aven’ei based on Japanese people And actual uote from the book“We don’t know much about the Topi do we? Other than how vulgar and warmongering they are?”The Topi have “rich reddish brown” skin wear human bones and are described as savages with a “primitive cu

    The Continent kindle × Hardcover The Continent319 update Oh no We're still talking about this book? I've read the updated version My review has not changed 112516 ETA Review here Yes I did read it I read it after putting it down a month ago when the first chapter failed to capture my interest simply so I can provide information for anyone who seems to think that this book shows us how to be better as humans and isn't a white savior book Yes I saw that comment elsewhere And yes the book is a mess Outside of some

    The Continent kindle × Hardcover The Continentedit 21918 so apparently all those rewrites keira drake was supposed to be doing didn't fix a Damn Thing yall if this book was a person id fight it in a Wal Mart parking lotIt's racist trash and I'm getting really sick and tired of my genre being fucking corrupted by bullshit like this A black groundskeeper a pack of savage men obviously based on First Nations people and a wise calm ninja with almond eyesAnd of course the lily white MC Look as a white writer and critic it is my moral obligation to tell the rest of y'all that this is not acceptable and in fact is just bad writing So you're being a terrible person and terrible at your job When people say they want diversity this is not what they mean Listen better Writer better Be better

    The Continent kindle × Hardcover The ContinentMy first hint should have been the fact this is a Harleuin Teen novel Romance novels make me roll my eyes too much but a YA romance makes me roll them so hard they get stuck to the back of my head The Continent is a perfect example of an eye rolling face in palm planting groaning out loud “why am I still reading this?” YA romance Vaela Sun of the Spire is celebrating her sixteenth birthday The Spire is a technologically advanced country with heli planes and magnetic trains but is still old world culture where people use calling cards and address one another by their surname Women are regarded as fragile creatures and must hide their bare legs from men A courtship is declared before a couple may date The Spire is peaceful and perfect and everyone is happy unlike the citizens of the Continent Its indigenous tribes have been at war for over two hundred years and the Spire has found this to be a source of ent

    The Continent kindle × Hardcover The ContinentNote This book is being revised based on feedback from marginalized voices which is great I have not yet read the revised version If you're interested in these issues please take some time to listen to and consider the varied opinions and experiences of marginalized voices before coming to any conclusions Previous ReviewThe best word I can think of to describe this book is POWERFUL Because it's powerful on every levelIt's powerful on a sentence level There are so many lines that jump out as deep and profound and terribly beautiful Like“I feel like a fool having somehow failed to ever mark the difference between spectacle and death”andBut one cannot stay forever in the eclipse of tragedy and though I
