2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with this book, 30 July 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vengeance (The Blood Trail Chronicles Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
It was just a coincidence I actually stumbled across this book. I hadn't heard of the book or the author before but all the reviews looked good. However, as soon as I began reading the book I didn't like it at all. I found the language used in the books too simple, it appeared to be geared towards a younger audience but that didn't coincide with the mature content of the books. There was time inconsistencies - people talked about the first murder by the red cloaked assassin "last night" when according to the storyline 3 weeks had passed since it had occurred.

I never felt any emotional connection to the main character. The character had little depth. She went from a princess to an assassin overnight. Her first murder was not justified until chapters later, even then it appeared as if she just killed the man for the sake of it or even practice. It never had any emotional consequences on the character.

Amelia was very submissive. She followed a stranger (who turned out to be a witch) and agreed to murder everybody the stranger named without even understanding why.

That's as far as I got in the storyline, I was unable to finish the book. I was so disappointed with the book. The concept of the book sounded really interesting but I thought the book was poorly written. I went back to reread the reviews and was shocked how many people enjoyed the book. I don't usually like giving bad reviews but a large amount of the previous reviews do not give a realistic depiction of the book so I wanted to share my opinions.
