How could such a woman be so weak? So incredibly useless and overcome by her own emotions that she fails to act for the good? I’m afraid that reading about her completely ruined the book for me, even though the book itself had an incredibly slow plot too caught up on the wrong things.
What exactly is wrong with Alera? Well, specific instances come to mind: She’s freaking stuck on the wrong guy. I understand that she loves another person, but when you’re the freaking que I hated Alera.
I understand that she loves another person, but when you’re the freaking queen of a country on the brink of war, you need to set your priorities straight, woman. I’m not going to be sympathizing with a woman who pines for the enemy’s commander of troops while she has a perfectly good relationship going on in her own home. Everybody seems to think that she has a good reason to dislike Steldor, but she really doesn’t.
His infamous temper is only the result of her stupid actions – denying him herself, both physically and figuratively, which is her duty you can’t even argue that she has a right to choose who she beds, since she’s the freaking queen and needs to be above such petty and insignificant – yes, I said it – matters in the grand scheme of things. I swear, it won’t be Narian that overthrows Hytanica, it’ll be Alera’s stupidity and stupidity and stupidity that causes the place to topple down inside out.
I find myself hating Alera’s passiveness and uselessness in this book. I didn’t read the first book, and I’m thinking that that’s a good thing, since I disliked Alera so much here. I don’t care that she and Narian shared a wonderful romance in the first book!
All I care is that she does some-freaking-thing about it, like either giving him up completely or taking some goddamn action that helps solve their problem. She isn’t doing anything, at all. And that completely ruins this book for me.
Another one damn, I keep reading for a few pages ftee find another example of her uselessness: She still believes in Narian’s kindness after he betrayed Hytanica and joined the Cokyrian army! What the freak is she thinking?
This brings me to another further point: Every person who makes a difference in this story are employed and male, and the ones who do nothing but sit around and be a liability are the women, like Miranna being a love struck idiot who got fooled into being abducted, Alera, and other women who we hear nothing of.
Who saves Miranna from her abduction? Does this mean she intends to get with Lkuver at the end of all al,egiance this, after all of that?
Allegiance (Legacy, #2) by Cayla Kluver
Someone check this girl’s head for me. And as heartless as this sounds, when faced with giving up your parents alegiance giving up your entire kingdom, it’s obvious which is the right decision to take.
Granted, it’s not allegiande easy decision, but can the lives of hundreds of thousands of people compare to the lives of two people, retired people at that? Alera and Miranna, young as they are, fail lalegiance grasp the urgency of their position and fail to act accordingly. It’s a failing on this part of their characters that demonstrates their immaturity and unfit-ness to even be a part of the story!
Alera simpers uselessly when faced with a terrifying dilemma and gets nothing accomplished in the process, instead causing more trouble and irritation. And when things don’t go her way, she still gets in the way and insists that “he doesn’t deserve this, it isn’t fair.
I don’t care if she’s young, but when you’re shoved to be queen, you should learn to buckle up and mature to play that role effectively. Otherwise you should fee deposed of immediately and thrown away.
And when the men make a plan to gain the strategic advantage, she blubbers that it isn’t humane! That it may be war, but they can still be humane! Allegiancce still utterly stunned that she chose Narian in the end. That she left Steldor so happily. That she still loved Narian even though he did all of those terrible things. Funny how the death of a husband allows for a woman to be set free to love another.
I find that extremely disrespectful to the ffree who died who wasn’t bad in the first place. Oh my god, the books that get published these days View all 7 comments. May 03, Jamie rated it liked it. There are so many things about lkuver book allegiande frustrated me! I love the story and the world-building is amazing. Well, I would have stabbed her in the cave. The story would be much better off without her. The other characters especially the Elite Guards are all so well-developed and strong.
I just don’t understand why Alera is so mortifyingly annoying. She’s passive, weak-minded, selfish and above all stupid. She allows her kingdom’s destru Urgh. She allows her kingdom’s destruction based on the world’s least believable love story.
The character development that went into Steldor led me to believe that the author would finally take this story in the right direction. I don’t think she will. I especially hated the way that the audience is being ‘forced’ into this farce that is the Alera-Narian relationship. I don’t like being prodded in a direction that is clearly not the right one.
So, why 3 stars? I still loved the book and was enthralled with the world itself. I’m really looking forward kluer the next book, though I hope it addresses some of the issues that plagued this one.
May 05, Terri rated it did not like it Shelves: She spends most of the story in her room, sleeping or hiding from Steldor.
I might see this for a normal teenage girl in the midst of drama, for a week or two at most. But at some point, you are going allegiancs have to put on your big girl pants and stop sniveling. Alera does not do this. She sulks and cries until someone hugs her, then she hides in her room, where we have now spent probably of the pages in these two fayla.
But Alera kluevr the Queen. How is she strong? Give him a chance girl! Okay, good for you.
More power to you. The color of ones eyes are not an indication of their love-worthiness. This is a bad criteria by which to operate your love life. He is leading the charge out in the frfe, buildings are blowing up, townspeople are trying to break into the palace for safety, secondary characters we like are missing or dead.
Someone get George R. Martin here with his penchant for fictional murders because:
