To start off on an honest note, I have to admit that this book was a tad slow in the beginning. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. Preview — The Offering by Kimberly Derting. 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. Must redeem within 90 days. The characters I felt were well developed and Charlie herself I could connect easily with.

The Pledge Buddy Reads 1 7 Mar 30, The series does have a good resolution.

The strong idea is never fully built upon, a matter made all the more frustrating thanks to the complete lack of detail given when it is used. I liked that there was a sense of realism in the characters – I felt as though I were living and breathing alongside with the characters – and perhaps that’s the reason why this series was able to bring out so much emotions from me. All the stereotypes, pretentious writing laced with bits of awkward out-of-place slang here and there and more cliches than any movie of Adam Sandler to ever be released is able to the pledge kimberly derting 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.


It makes me feel ahead of the game. Even the pledge kimberly derting it doesn’t need one in the first place. We haven’t even reached a climax yet I sat down with it today and could not put it down.

The Pledge

The thing that spoiled the book for me the pledge kimberly derting the extremely cliched writing. I plege to know more of Queen Sabara and her power; I wanted to know how their world worked. As I said before, the world-building was a tad thin. Charlie was a selfish worthless dwrting. Charlie didn’t want to be Queen, yet she stepped up because it was the right thing to do.

The Offering starts off with Queen Elena and Niko planning against Ludania to get something that both of them wants — Sabara. She wants to stay away from him because this frightens her. I was sold on fhe series from the very beginning of the very first book, The Pledge, and I cannot gush enough about just how awesomely it ends. View all 3 comments.

There is a lot of buildup, figuring out the characters, setting the scene, etc. And yet her magical powers were not enough to the pledge kimberly derting prevented someone from killing her in the night, which surely would have happened at some point over the years.


I mean don’t get me wrong the characters’ situations and the present setting were all very well described just none about the past.

Loved Charlie and Max. My husband is reading this now and he seems to be enjoying it so far. I would love to give it 5 stars, especially the pledge kimberly derting this is my first book review, but I can’t.

It reminds me somehow of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, they both ikmberly the same heroine, hero and villain qualities. You are commenting using your Twitter account. That was my main question. He acts strange and then pretend like he doesn’t know what she’s talking about when she calls him out on it.

The Offering

Brooklyn, her pledg, I’m surprised with her secret. Ludania is ruled only by queens, and the current one, Queen Sabara, is solidly evil. A small, simple thing, but there you are. If you need to reach me, try the “Ask me a question” option belowor email me at kim at kimberlyderting dot com
