I got an ARC of this book from the publisher. I'm only posting the review now because I forgot to do it earlier this month...

Never is book three in the Lightbringer series and I really wanted to love this book. The cover is amazing and the character building is perfect, but not flawless, and there is something about the way the story is written that just didn’t reach into my head... read more on my website at
