Knocking this down to three stars from four, even though my brain was debating giving it two. But I'll be nice. No harsh judgement until I actually reKnocking this down to three stars from four, even though my brain was debating giving it two. But I'll be nice. No harsh judgement until I actually reread it instead of skim it.
I debated not doing this, but I decided to delete my review that was on here. Although I still agree with a handful of the remarks I made, I find that most of them I don't really agree with anymore. I don't really like this anymore, and I'm not sure how I ever did. There's a lot of things that bug me about it, but I'll address them when I do my next reread of the book, instead of skimming through it. I still agree that this is a really light fantasy book and if you like something that is an easy read and doesn't have much depth, this isn't that bad of a choice.
If I recommended this to you, don't read it. I was young and didn't notice all of the huge things wrong with this book. I don't regret enjoying it, and I know why I did enjoy it, I just don't understand how anymore. (My guess is that it was the first book I'd read with a demon character in it, and I'd absolutely loved Ware. I still love demon characters to this day but Ware... well...) I'll just leave the rest of this rant at "I really wish this book had been in the hands of a better writer and I'm about 70-80% positive the things wrong with this book didn't come from Mercedes Lackey's end."
