The more you read the more questions you get and you have to read on to get the bottom of these secrets.Its engrossing. Like watching LOST.
But this...was kind of a let down to say the least.
If you read the previous book you remember that it ended on quite the cliffhanger with Kara being transported into the demon realm and taken captive by another demon lord.
But what does he want with her and what are these vivid memories that she starts experiencing that she knows is not her own.They seem to belong to a now dead summoner called Elinor that had some part in causing major destruction in the demon realm.
As more questions gets answered we get more unanswered ones.
Kara sunk in my esteem quite a lot in this book (view spoiler)[being torn between two men can be understood in a way but really Kara? Harping on about your love for Ryan while casually having sex with Rhyzkahl...AND then getting it on with yet another guy (Mzatal)and it should be mentioned then she doesnt consider Ryan at all. I mean I found him boring and such but... (hide spoiler)]
There has to be some standards or at least human decency.
And she wasnt the only one who did something wrong.There is some betrayal in this book think along the lines of what happens to the heroine at the end of Darkfever and you will be mentally prepared for it.
It was also in other ways a very weak book.
I suddenly got this awful realization,the plot was was starting to remind me a lot of Storm Born and Kara was all over the place with wise cracking and such.Annoying much?
I mean she was always a bit like that...but it was offset by some gentler moments.This book lacked that. It was shallow replacing the intensity of the previous book with cheap shock value.
Makes me wonder if I should go to the effort of reading on into this series...well I wont wait with baited breath for the next book at least.
I felt the first part was stronger than the second. It embodied the gothic romance spirit perfectly.And I almost felt like Dahlia LamotMore like a 2.5
I felt the first part was stronger than the second. It embodied the gothic romance spirit perfectly.And I almost felt like Dahlia Lamottes book "The Dark stranger" would have been a lot of fun to read.
The second part only felt like it plodded along.
Callie was remarkably slow to figure out who was visiting her in the night. Yet she accepts the claims of her colleagues and neighbours being (view spoiler)[of the supernatural world (hide spoiler)]
You would have thought with the kind of research she had done for her book she would have gotten a clue a long time before.
I started reading this book expecting another both feature main characters who writes thesis and have degrees.
But I actually liked the main character of TDL more than the one in ADoW.Even for the less perfect things in her.
Didnt really see the point of the boyfriend Paul.He could have been written out entirely for all the impact he had on the plot. It was like he was only there for Callie to feel bad about her betraying his trust in her by being intimate with the incubus.
All in all this book was a decent read...but it could have been excellent if the author had kept up the great start of it.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
