Stories of the paranormal have not normally been my favourite type of book; although I have read quite a few more since I bought my Kindle. I have read quite a few I enjoyed, but this one I felt was rather heavy going. Although the primary plot element seems straight forward enough, it then becomes a little confusing and I felt that the writers didn't really quite know what was going to happen within the story, but were just making changes as it occurred to them.
There are several twists and turns in the plot, but they don't always seem to make sense; and I also thought that many of the different personalities were not particularly well written, and quite one dimensional. Even the main actors seem to be rather light weight and not fully developed.
This is the first part of a trilogy; I'm not sure that I would be that interested in finding the others, even if they were free to download.
I'm certainly not a book snob...and easily pleased if the story is entertaining and the characters believable. My main complaint was the plot in this got really silly, our heroine in the story finds out she is a witch, who has been reincarnated year after year to be reunited with her vampire lover...at times she is possessed by her Aunt, who she is reincarnated from and then she finds out she is also an angel ...at this point I got that fed up I stopped reading.
She also has two love interests...her soul mate the vampire...and some boy who her Gran would like her to marry, there is hardly any development of the relationship with the boy and yet she picks him over the vampire. She wasn't likeable and her character was not believable.
In terms of the plot aside from the initial action the core plot until at least 80% of the way through was simply a progressive reveal of the protagonist's back-story. The authors maintained the suspense by having characters refuse to tell the protagonist what was going on i.e. scene one, a character tells the protagonist something, but refuses to tell her more; scene two, move to another location and another character tells the protagonist something, but holds back on something else; scene three, move to a new location and first character tells protagonist a bit more, but still holds something back etc. Three quarters of the way through the book I was still wondering when the actual story was going to start and I'd say the vast majority of the novel was simply characters explaining the protagonist's situation.
The second issue was that few of the characters were fully developed. The protagonist was merely shaped by the events that happened around her and I had no sense of what she was like as a person. As she holds the story together the book really suffered from this weak characterisation and it she has not piqued my interest enough to want to read on in the series. Another main character, her grandmother, was confusing, seeming to flit between personalities in the way she responded to events.Read more ›
