If this book was written as a "horrid novel that corrupt innocent young feminine minds" in the Victorian times, I think it would have been a bestseller. It has all the requisite: a feisty heroine, a dark, brooding hero, a tempting yet menacing villain, isolated grand mansion/castle, supernatural entities, perilous moments, misunderstandings and torrid resolution.

Sadly, I find the melodrama overwrought, the heroine AND hero annoying in their inconstancy and immaturity, the plot unnecessarily plod
L'idea non sarebbe stata neppure malvagia. L'arricchimento con nuove creature magiche, vicende che s'intersecano, il finale aperto costituiscono un elemento di originalità rispetto ai precedenti e quindi tengono vivo l'interesse. L'amore che sboccia tra i protagonisti è piuttosto romantico; le storielle secondarie sono interessanti e fanno presagire ulteriori spunti per proseguire la serie in modo soddisfaciente.
Purtroppo certi passaggi che dovrebbero tenere alta la tensione sono davvero troppo

Awaiting 3. Questa serie continua a dimostrarsi abbastanza originale. Stavolta gli eredi von Wolfram, e il loro segreto genetico, devono vedersela con creature altrettanto magiche nell’umida e nebbiosa Inghilterra. Licantropi contro angeli caduti, stregone maligne contro zingari, battaglie nella brughiera. E protagoniste femminili come sempre forti, indipendenti e passionali.

La scena in cui Wesmorlyn tutto d’un pezzo è praticamente sedotto dalla smaliziata Charlotte, e si illud

This book was good, after the first 200 pages.
I think this book has potential, it really does.
I liked the situation that Charlotte was in, and some of it was unpredictable.
Charlottes character really pissed me off at some points in the book. Why in the world, would you trust some guy at the ball, and run away that night, trusting that he has your best intentions in mind? I just found her to be weak, and it pisses me off when female characters in a book are displayed as being naive or weak. There
