That's EXACTLY how I feel about this series. But I think this is it. If I'm still feeling lukewarm about this series after BC, I'll drop the series altogether and stop wasting my time.

Mimi Smith I was just reading this today when I decided it's too much and I need to drop it for awhile. Maybe forever. I did like book 3 and 4 wasn't bad, but it lost emotional impact for me. Now everything feels kind of flat? Plus Ethan annoyed me. Again.


message 3: by Dija (new)

Dija Exactly, Mimi. I'm not feeling this at all and I couldn't care less about the characters. So far though, I'm not hating anything either so I won't drop it just yet.


message 4: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Smith Yeah, I reached a point when Ethan became too much of a drama llama(love the expression, btw) and I started having flashbacks... hope it redeems itself for you, though.


message 5: by Dija (new)

Dija I'm afraid I'll be feeling the same way pretty soon. Sigh.


message 6: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Smith Courage, Dija... Who knows, maybe somewhere, somehow, mystically it becomes the series of your dreams. Then you can tip me, and I'll keep reading :D


message 7: by Dija (new)

Dija Haha, I'm not that optimistic. :P


message 8: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Smith Yeah, me neither, but everything's possible :)


message 9: by Feminista (new)

Feminista I think this series is over for me. This book in itself wasn't horrible, but with all the prior Ethan angst in the other books, the author took it too far for me in this book. What was meant to be a happy and beautiful reunion, ended up being with Ethan finding reasons, feeble excuses at that, to stay away from her. I am just so disappointed. But I thi k I am one of the few that are.


message 10: by Dija (new)

Dija I'll be joining your ranks soon, Nabk. I've never really liked Ethan because of his drama queen ways, but like you, I was also hoping this book would make me love him and maybe force him to get over himself, but that doesn't seem to be happening any time soon. I think the only reason I'm even thinking about finishing this is so I can fairly say that I've given up on this series altogether...if that makes sense. XD

Lauren I quit reading the series after the 3rd book. Ethan is the worst.


message 12: by Dija (new)

Dija Smart move, Lauren. I seriously don't know why I even bother with this series, since I don't like a single character nor do I give a shit about the plot. :|


Aly is so frigging bored That after reading thought is a tease! Please PM me and tell me what you mean? ;;) Pretty please?

mrsj so verdict?


message 15: by Dija (new)

Dija I ended up really enjoying the second half. A lot of things were predictable to the point of being laughable, but all in all, I enjoyed reading about the plot and I've finally made peace with Merit. It was definitely a step up from DD and if it weren't for how horrible the first 75% was, I'd be tempted to give it 4 stars.


Aly is so frigging bored Oh dear me! You're giving it 3, aren't you? This is intriguing, and unexpected.


message 17: by Dija (new)

Dija Yep. I'm just as surprised as you.

Your reading of this book was like a roller-coaster for me, it went like this: "hmm, not having many hopes about it" -> "really?!" => "I might not continue it" => "definitely not trying more" => "intrigued" => "ok, I'll give it another chance"


message 19: by Dija (new)

Dija @Jenny: Yep, I'll definitely be continuing, now that I like Merit and all. Hopefully the next book will be even better.

Honestly, I don't think you'll like it. You have to have a lot of motivation for not dropping this withing the first 65% or so, and I doubt you'll have that. I'm not even sure why I didn't drop it, but I'm glad I didn't because it got really good towards the end. I don't think you'll be able to stick with it so long though.

@Aly: Hahaha! XD And don't forget the part where I was hating on Ethan! That part sticks out the most to me, LOL.


Aure   `Reading With The Dark` I do not dare to read this book yet.

I bolded the part that gives me HOPE!!! Ethan was a jerk until book 3 or 4 (one of those two). Everyone tells me Ethan is set in stone as Merit's HEA. *cough* TEAM JONAH *cough* : /


message 23: by Dija (last edited Sep 21, 2012 11:23PM) (new)

Dija Yeah, he's obviously gonna be the asshole hero till the end. And he's still a jerk in this book, even at the ending, but it's just that I'm seeing some serious hope for the series after this. Maybe all the rocky bits are over and now Ethan can finally grow up? That's the vibe I got, and I'll be majorly pissed if I'm wrong, because really, six books is more than ENOUGH.


Aly is so frigging bored Dee I don't think it'll happen :D he's more then 200 years old... how much do you think he can and will want to change? :D


message 25: by Dija (new)

Dija But...but love changes everything!! >_<


Aly is so frigging bored Sure :D


Aure   `Reading With The Dark` Raphael is more that 1000years old and even he's changing for love! :)


message 28: by Dija (new)

Dija There you go. Behold ze epic powers of lurve!


Aure   `Reading With The Dark` LMAO Dee :D


Aly is so frigging bored He didn.t change, he kind of remaind the same and he only does nice things for elena.


Aure   `Reading With The Dark` I disagree. The changes are visible in his punishments to others. Least the consideration in it. And also in how he treats his seven. And he's a little bit mortal now. So you see, changes all over the place :)
