Read from April 20 to May 05, 2012

Okay, so this one kind of disappointed me, because I was expecting great new things from it and it turned out to be more or less the same paranormal vampire thing – it’s just that in Sang, where the story takes place, vampires are called Bludmen. Fancy.
My main problem with the book was the heroine, she started out okay, but then she just becomes boring, and I gradually stopped caring about her. The love triangle didn’t help (HATE THEM SO FREAKING MUCH) especially because both relationships are not believable. If Letitia likes both men then she needs to explain it to me and show me why exactly. Just telling me over and over that they are both oh so handsome and sexy isn’t enough.
I also think the villain is just plain stupid, and a 5 year-old could have tricked him.
Now, I did like the world of Sang, and especially the circus people who, as I see it, deserved a lot more scenes (or at least one show!). But in the end I can't recommend Wicked As They Come. Sorry.

(Note: the cover is a 5 + 1 stars!!)

Don't you just hate stupid villains? I like it when they are so evil and have such masterminds that they make me want to hide under the covers, which is so not the case with the bad guy of this book. < _ <
