so it should be good. Once I started reading
on 23 December 2014
I usually read books by Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, Nalini Singh... etc. So anyway, I decided to try this author after some recommendations. Besides, this is a best-selling author, so it should be good.
Once I started reading, I found the plot quite well thought out, the storyline is good, and the characters have a good potential to be those you would remember for a while. However, halfway through the story, my attention started to wander. When I reached the end of the story, I have to admit to being disappointed.
One thing that stood out was the lack of humor. For a story this long, I felt like there should be some. The 'mood' within the story is mostly depressing and it didn't help that I don't feel a connection to the main characters, maybe due to the lack of good character development. The female main character started off as a potential kick-ass girl, but towards the end, she seemed more like a helpless, moaning girl. The male main character was just... forgettable. Some of the battle scenes were drawn out by the inclusion of non-main-character fights, whilst one final battle involving the main character was summarised curtly.
To be honest, I probably would not have finished the book if not for the fact that I paid for it, and was hoping that it would get better towards the end.
