Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 January 2011
I hate writing negative reviews, but the point is to help people figure out whether the book will entertain them or not. If you want a heroine who you believe could wipe the floor with a demon, then don't read this book. She thinks that leather trousers and spike heals are the way a kick-ass demon-slayer dresses. When a friend borrows a sword (not to use in battle, oh no, it is to show off her fledging skills to a friend) that she needs (it has special powers, of course) to fight a major demon lord instead of smacking the idiot from here into next week, she ends up forgiving her and even congratulating her (am trying not to give away too much here, she does give a reaon, which I find ridiculous, but seriously, she almost died because she didn't have the sword, and she just lets that go?! I'm all for forgiveness, but surely that is just suicidal?!).

There are various other stupid things too, like a sanctimonious sister who signs a contract without reading it, that leads to her daughter being legally kidnapped. Our heroine saves her niece, having to do some fairly violent and unpleasant things in the process, as you might imagine, which freaks the girl out. The mother uses that opportunity to keep them separated once she has her daughter back, and instead of encouraging her daughter to see and thank her heroic aunt who saved her from being experimented on and being locked up, encourages her to be weak, stupid and hypocrtical. And our heroine not only accepts this, but ends up agreeing with her!!! I'm all for the girl needing to get over her scare, but I'd never put up with her treating the person who saved her like that - especially when it was her own moronic mother who put her at risk...

Anyway, so, I'm sure there are people who will enjoy reading this book - and I have no doubt there are some books that I think are great that other would think are complete rubbish, so am casting no aspersion! If you are a fan of Ilona Andrews/Patricia Briggs/Kelley Armstrong/Rachel Caine etc. this probably isn't the book for you...
