Relentless was fun. Slow and aggravating a lot of the times, but fun.
Sara, sadly to say is a fairly boring character outside of the whole teenage angst, nobody understands me bullshit. She doesn't know when to listen or take no for an answer which gets her and her loved ones into a lot of trouble, yet she continues to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. She keeps secrets from everyone despite, deciding multiple times to tell them the truth. In short, she is an unreliable character who never learns.
The sidekicks are a lot more fun and definitely made the book enjoyable. Remy is a great character who just squeezes your heart at all turns.
Nikolas, the...love interest? I question mark that because...there is essentially 0 romance in this book. But there could be next book! He's...I don't know. 2D as a character but more fun than Sara because he's Russian, mysterious, loyal, and quirky.
Sara's two best friends Roland and Peter are also 2D. There is nothing about them that really makes them stand out other than having lines in the story.
Greg-Sara's good friend, WHO MOVED AWAY AND WE NEVER MEET. "Oh I miss Greg" or "Greg would help me" WHAT WAS THE POINT. GREG NOT F***ING HERE. I saw very little point to adding this Greg to the story when we never met him. IT WAS USELESS. ARGH.
The story shows all its cookies from the very beginning of the book, except 1. So, there really isn't much to anticipate.
"So, how did it get 3 stars with so much bitching, Hetal?" You may ask. Well, my friends, it's the action scenes. While everything else was...a little sub par, the action scenes in this book got my heart racing. They were extremely well done, and I was ready to turn the page just as I started a new one. Don't get me wrong, it IS a good read, just don't expect too much out of the characters themselves.
