There are exciting parts, but just when the story line starts to pick up and gain momentum, Harper decides it's the perfect time to cockblock you. I'm talking about the demon encounters, that rescue mission, those should-be-seat-gripping moments. There are no actual action scenes to speak of. Somehow, these parts always end up with both sides sorting their differences by talking and the demons coincidentally walking away and/or going MIA. Predictable. Convenient. Too safe. Plain ridiculous.
And that's actually kinda sad. This book has potential, just that it lacks the ability to make you feel excited about what's going to happen next.
The epitome of filler books. This is an easy read. An okay book.

I mean, I will probably see through this till the end but in all honesty, the one of the things that's keeping me from chucking this series out of the window is my lazy ass--too lazy to look for other books since I'm way ahead of my reading challenge.
What bugs me is that most of the time, this is a major eye-roller. Though I admit that this may have brought out a chuckle or two, I think almost everything about this is forced and all too convenient. Can you believe that the MC went to a demon-infested land without a weapon and survived? How did she survive you ask? She was nice to the demon who tried to murder her. She says she's a pacifist but come on. Very unrealistic.
Boring action scenes. An abundance of cheesy jokes (WHICH I DON'T EVEN GET OR FIND FUNNY). (Still) bland romance. Uncomplicated and predictable plot line.

Well. I honestly hope that's what happened to me and not the fact that I lost so many brain cells that I was able to tolerate reading and finishing Persuasion.
Good lord, please let it be the former.
But really. Let me begrudgingly admit that this book actually grows on you. I think. Okay. Not really. God, how many brain cells did I end up losing?
This is dumb. This is frustrating. This is so plain stupid that I actually needed to stop every 30 minutes so I can regain a bit of my sanity (and brain cells). But then again, here I am, marking it as finished and writing a review. I think I deserve a medal or a pat on the back or for god's sake an applause probably for surviving this brain-draining book.
My god. I hated this. It was so painful.
Will I read the next book?
WELL OF COURSE DUH.
