The Pledge review É eBook or Kindle ePUB æ In the violent country of Ludania the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak The smallest transgression like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue results in immediate execution Seventeen year old Charlaina has always been able toIs almost exposedCharlie is intensely attracted to Max even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regim. I wasn't all that impressed with THE BODY FINDER and I was pretty hesitant when THE PLEDGE showed up on my doorstep I wasn't sure Kimberly Derting deserved another chance If I didn't like her first novel what were the odds I'd like the first book in a totally different genre How big were the chances I'd find the experience of reading her third novel like I did her first and give up on her in general Thankfully that wasn't the case I'm glad I did end up giving it a chance because it wasn't anything like THE BODY FINDER frankly it was better creative and engrossingIn the beginning of the book I wasn't too sure I was going to like it The pacing was like the love child of a turtle and a snail and I wasn't really feeling any of the characters I didn't get a good grip on them didn't feel sympathy for them during crises and didn't care if they got hurt As the novel progressed however they were displayed a little in depth and I grew to love a few of them especially AngelinaThe pacing at the end is breakneck I found myself really engrossed in the story and I was sad when it ends I'm really glad Derting didn't stretch the story out and make it a series because it ended perfectly and frankly it wouldn't have worked as a series Everything is resolved wrapped up in a nice little package with a pretty little bowIf you didn't like THE BODY FINDER fear not because THE PLEDGE definitely steps it up a level You won't be disappointed

Sses and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret The only place she can really be free is the drug fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before and her secret. This had so much potential Kimberly Derting had the right idea came up with some nice details to her dystopian society she had everything she needed to make a great story And then it all went downhill in this jumble of cliches and boring storytelling that came together in one snooze festival in which you're left as that one bored person wondering what the hell are you going to eat for dinner tonight since you haven't gone grocery shopping ever since Jesus died the second time So the story of The Pledge takes place in a war torn country in which each class is segregated by the language they speak; each class has its own language and the higher you are on the hierarchy of Ludania some crazed medieval matriarchal society that is supposedly in a futuristic US the the people beneath you on it can't look you in the eye Or else Sabara the ueen rules the whole ueendom yes Derting we see what you did there with cruelty rigidity and um dark magic Anyway in the midst of all this mess lies this very dull girl with a very special gift yep another one of those They should all start a club or something Now don't get me wrong I didn't buy this book because I wanted to read it for the shits and giggles Neither did I buy it for it's uber gorgeous cover although that was a contributing factor I mean come on am I right But my point is I thought this here was going to be good As the linguistic enthusiast that I sometimes am I thought the concept of different classes speaking different languages and this one girl who understood them all was a really good idea And it would've been had Derting totally not messed this one up All the stereotypes pretentious writing laced with bits of awkward out of place slang here and there and cliches than any movie of Adam Sandler to ever be released is able to contain contribute to make The Pledge a terribly slow train wreck happening in front of you right now and yet you can't seem to stop glaring at it disapprovingly while you wonder how was it that it went wrong Basically what happens is the following ueen Sabara Omfg I'm a total bitch see how I'm a total bitch since I just sucked the soul out of a six year old Do you Charlie Oh noes none of us can look up when the rich people are talking Sometimes people get hanged because they do it This place is awful Brook Let's go to a club I know this is practically a dictatorship and we're minors and we could both get killed for this but omfg let's go to a club Charlie Ew ok Max Hey there hot stuff Charlie electrical currents coursing through body O M G Max Yeah I know I'm hot and mysterious Meanwhile ueen Sabara This is tedious Kill all the servants I am mean Charlie thinks about Max gets wet Max stalks Hey I'm not stalking you or anything I'm just really hot and really mysterious Charlie wet Charlie WAIT YOU LIED TO ME OMFG U SUCK Max I'm really mysterious though And also really hot Charlie wet ueen Kill all these bastards I wish for it to be done and so it shall be; for I am the ueen and I'm mean Charlie stands there ueen Sabara dies Charlie I live in this huge castle; I abolished some terrible laws; I have a hot boyfriend All of this sucks though because I get so many freaking nightmares And the worst is I'm not even kidding Oh wait it gets worse than that forgive me the sole reason why this book came to be is because Derting interviewed this woman who was a child during the holocaust So yeah all the historically inspired plot that you see in this book Totes like the holocaust You guys it doesn't get any better than that Seriously I gave this book two stars because sometimes it gave me slivers of hope Sometimes But hope doesn't make for good plot and great characters so unfortunately The Pledge will forever be a huge disappointment to me seeing as how I love the Body Finder series Sigh Oh well
