The Continent by Keira Drake

Into the Wild

Read The Continent Online Free - For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.

But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

I received an arc copy of this book on a giveaway so I spent no money and I still want a refund or a brain wipe to erase it from my memory. The inside cover has a small scrawl from Kiera Drake saying that she hopes I enjoy my “trip to the continent”. Sorry to say, I very much did not enjoy it. I...

[EDIT 3/21/17] Since lots of people are still liking this review, I wanted to note that the publisher did push back publication to work out some of these issues. As the author wasn't very receptive of criticism, I don't have high hopes, but it's something that might keep racist descriptions out of...

ETA: Review here: http://www.bookrookreviews.com/home/1... *** Yes, I did read it. I read it - after putting it down a month ago, when the first chapter failed to capture my interest - simply so I can provide information for anyone who seems to think that this book shows us how to be ~better~ as hu...

I'm not going to read this book and I don't think I ever will. I'm sick of the white saviour narrative. And the book portrays Native Americans/Asians as savages and perpetuates all the stereotypes surrounding Asians. As an Asian myself, this just makes me unbelievably angry. I genuinely hate the...

My first hint should have been the fact this is a Harlequin Teen novel. Romance novels make me roll my eyes too much but a YA romance makes me roll them so hard they get stuck to the back of my head. The Continent is a perfect example of an eye-rolling, face-in-palm planting, groaning out loud “w...

It's racist trash, and I'm getting really sick and tired of my genre being fucking corrupted by bullshit like this-- A black groundskeeper, a pack of "savage" men obviously based on First Nations people, and a wise, calm ninja "with almond eyes". And, of course, the lily-white MC. Look, as a white...

White savior narrative & calling people savages is racist and awful.

After what several trusted authors/reviewers/book people have said on Twitter today, there is no way I'll be reading this book.

Apparently this book is Super Fucking Racist. Calling natives "red skinned", calling them "savages". From what I've heard, the main character is a white girl who's going to save these native people. How did this book get published? *side eyes this book so hard*
