I rated A Heart so Fierce and Lonely 5/5 stars because I was one of those people that appreciated the plot driven style. Although, I did feel off-put by the point of view switches at the beginning, I soon fell in love with Lia Mara. I did miss Rhen and Harper, though. Regardless, I thought the story was beautifully plotted with twists and turns I didn’t expect. The characterization was top-notch, which is amazing considering that the novel is plot driven rather than character driven.
