I regret not reading the first or second book in this series, before picking this one up. But, as always, I couldn’t say no to a great bargain. And this one (even though sometimes I was a bit lost), did not disappoint me at all. I’ll be sure to get the other two books, to get the backstory I missed out on.
Now, let’s get the negatives out of the way, shall we? There are quite a lot of grammatical and spelling errors that I’ve picked up while reading this book. Although this did not distract from my enjoyment of the story – it’s still not something I want to see in good books.
The characters were well developed and I can see their potential in the coming book/s. The main protagonist needs to grow up and stop acting like a child with no power or say in her situations because she is starting to kinda grate on my nerves. I’d also like to see more of the immortal Des, and their relationship. I get that its new, but they can at least share some real moments that does not include yelling or making out.
The writing is good, but there is definitely room for improvement there. Sometimes, while trying to create an intricate dialog, the true point of the dialog gets lost in translation. This can be somewhat irritating. Other than that, the plot is great and makes this one a rather nice change-of-pace story to get lost in.
Please don’t be like me and start with the third book in a series….
