Destroy by Tricia Mingerink {Book Review}

(Minor spoilers if you haven't read books 1-3...) 

~ Description 
Before the war, before the Blades, before the Leader…

There was a boy and a scullery maid and a secret shame.
One moonlit night of blood and knives destroyed their country and their lives forever.

The Leader failed to die, but will he also fail to lead?

~ My Rating 
5 of 5 stars 

~ My Review 
First off, I have three things to point out about this book. I loved it, it was amazing, and I need Deliver (book four) NOOOWWWW. 

*ahem* Okay, so this book in The Blades of Acktar is a novella that goes between book three (Defy) and book four (Deliver). 

I wasn't sure what to expect going into it (I mean, no Leith and Renna for the most part?!) but I shouldn't have worried. As usual, Ms. Mingerink has crafted an amazing story that will stir your heart. The Christian messages bled through so well, and the story was superbly done all the way around. 

When I met the Leader in Defy, I wasn't sure what to think of him. I certainly had reasons not to like him (LEITH!!!), but he was also saving Renna from something she dreaded terribly. I can happily say this book changed the way I looked at him. And Addie! She was so sweet! I absolutely loved their relationship... <3 *huggles charrie* 

So yes. This book tore my heart out and ripped it to shreds (nothing new with TBOA but totally worth mentioning) and showered me with feels. Amazing. <3 

**I received a free e-ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.**
