Top critical review
on 3 June 2014
The first half was tedious- more of the same heart break whinging over Brody and repetitive 'I don't trust you' arguments with Jared. I just really didn't much care about anything happening. Second half won back some merit. I quite liked the stuff on the fae plane. It's a real shame: The first book was so promising, the following two just haven't quite met the mark. My biggest peeve is that I've got no real sense of who Mina is. She flits around so much- self-pitying whinge/confident kick ass/ shy and reserved/ smart and cunning- depending on whats needed for the story. On the plus side, the writing was definitely less sloppy. I will be continuing with the series (I do have a soft spot for Jared) but it saddens me I can't rank these in my favorites when the premise had me so excited. Ho de hum.
