#BookReview: Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria

About the Book:

In the city of Eldra, people are ruled by ancient prophecies. 

For centuries, the high council has stayed in power by virtue of the prophecies of the elder seers. 

After the last infallible prophecy came to pass, growing unrest led to murders and an eventual rebellion that raged for more than a decade.

In the present day, Cassa, the orphaned daughter of rebels, is determined to fight back against the high council, which governs Eldra from behind the walls of the citadel. 

Her only allies are no-nonsense Alys, easygoing Evander, and perpetually underestimated Newt, and Cassa struggles to come to terms with the legacy of rebellion her dead parents have left her — and the fear that she may be inadequate to shoulder the burden. 

But by the time Cassa and her friends uncover the mystery of the final infallible prophecy, it may be too late to save the city — or themselves.

My Review: I really wanted to smash that like button with this one but with so many POVs it just didn't work out.  Multi POVs for me are hit and miss and this one I am sad to say was a full-on miss.  Although each POV was its own voice I just felt like changing POV so many times just took me out of the main story.  My other issue with this one was that there was a lot of info dumping once it started.  The ending was just weird and I wish the author would have done something else with it.  For me, this one could have been amazing but it just didn't work.
