- Note: a full review will be posted when finished with the book; only about 1/2 way through, but I still thought I should share my thoughts.*
Just yesterday, I finally bought the prequel to Descedants. All honesty, I think it's one of the best books I have ever read. Going into this, I knew that there were 8 year olds who read this book and me being a teenager, I thought it would be a little young. But I love Descendants so I just had to read it anyway.
I must admit that even though it is a great book, there were some things that happened that didn't cordonate with that movie. Like saying that Mal stole goods from others, while in the movie Mal asked Jay what he was doing when he was unloading all of his goods onto his bed. She asked him what the point of it was, like she didn't understand.
Also I realized that a lot of the things that the characters say in the book, wouldn't be something they would say in the movie. The personalities seemed to be switched. Mal was known to be the leaders of the villain kids, but she seemed to be a lot more ruthless and evil in the book than the movie.
Something that I loved about the book is that you get a lot of history about the characters and all the relationships. A lot of questions get answered as well.
I would definitely recomend this book to anyone who has watched Descendants and loved the movie.
I would rate this book overall a 4/5 stars.
Until Next Time,
