good, I enjoyed it.....but......
on 15 March 2014
I loved afterburn ( the 1st book) and absolutely couldn't wait for aftershock to come out! But after it was meant to come out in December, it was the delayed by 3months!!! Yes THREE months, I have to say, it wasn't as fantastic as I was expecting.
Yes, it still has the great characters, great storyline, and fantastic writing that one would expect from Sylvia Day.....it was just....lacking.
After a 3 month delay in publishing, I thought this would have given our author plenty of time to go over the book and make it outstanding, and able to blow the first book out of the water, but I was wrong. Apparently, Miss Day spent those 3 months doing something else entirely.
Should and could have been longer, there should and could have been much more to the ending of the book, and should and could have been made into just 1 full length novel.
The build up was good, gripping and a real page turner, but then, the ending is completely rushed and left ALOT to be desired.
The book is short anyway, and then it ends at 90% and there is 10% of dribble about s@x tips from Cosmo! This didn't bode well with me.
Good book, good story, great characters, overall very enjoyable, but from Sylvia Day, I expected more if I'm honest. I really hope she doesn't do that to the final crossfire book too.
