I got into disc 4 of 10 in the audiobook and still didn't care. Maybe the lack of likeable characters did it.

Lindley Walter-smith It's AWFUL, isn't it. I read it back when it was plugged as Harry Potter for femmeslashers, and I could not finish it either! Same reason - could not engage with any characters. Also, racist as hell.

message 2: by Sesana (new) - added it

Sesana YES ALSO THAT. And I have an allergic reaction to any plot that revolves around somebody being told, "Don't do this thing that you can't help doing! No, I won't tell you why you shouldn't, don't be silly."

Lindley Walter-smith YES. Total fail.
