Tessa, Will and their lost Jem stood together in a tight knot. Magnus knew that for a few moments nothing existed in the world but the three of them.

artbookslife: Is the Chaos Walking series really good? I'm halfway through The Knife of Never Letting Go, but I've had so many things to do I haven't been able to immerse myself in it yet. Have hear many good things so I think I just need some free time!

Hi! Personally, I think it’s a really good series. It really stands out from a lot of other YA out there, mainly because its main focus isn’t the usual love triangle or personal challenges. In Chaos Walking it’s mainly about Todd and Viola and how they try to save their world, but because of the Noise it’s all very different from a normal book.

To me, it’s quite special because in the entire series I have never felt as if the plot was going nowhere. There was a certain thing they were heading to (I’m trying not to spoil anything here) and everything happening basically builds up to that. There’s a gigantic amount of character development in the series, something I personally love in books, and everything is just so focused around the war and the moral struggle Todd’s suffering from that it just gives off this really “raw”, realistic vibe. It’s really war at its finest, Todd’s in the middle of it all and he doesn’t know how to act, he responds to fear and death and dissapointments so naturally that everything’s so relatable and I really felt as if I were there in their New World!

This has become a bit of a ramble and I apologise, but I hope this is enough for you! I really really liked the series and characters and I hope you will too! If you happen to continue reading them please do let me know what you think! :)

Much love,
Amber
