bookshelves: 2009-mt-bookpile, old-reads
Read in February, 2009

I was feeling unsure about this series, because I loved Wicked Lovely but felt "meh"-ish about Ink Exchange. Fragile Eternity is a return to the former, but without the wonder (probably because I know that world now).

Seth's journey to be closer to Ash, despite the presence of Keenen and the approach of Summer, is at the heart of this book; the choice he makes is not unexpected, but the ending did take me by surprise. And I have to say I never liked Keenen, so his little "oops" that cost him Donia and Ash made me happy. Just wish Niall was a larger part of this one, but perhaps in Book Four?

A friend asked if you had to read these in order; my advice is if you haven't read Wicked Lovely, you can't read Fragile Eternity. But in terms of continuity, you won't have missed that much if you skip Ink Exchange

Laura I read Wicked Lovely as really enjoyed it, although I was quite let down about Ink Exchange
and didn't continue with the series. Should I continue based on the fact that Fragile Eternity follows more closely to the characters of Wicked Lovely? .. And has better reviews? :) Thank youu!

Olivia im amidst Fragile Eternity and i have to say, for some reason i feel like I'm dragging through this, its taken me weeks to get halfway through when i usually devour books within hours. I wasn't much impressed with Ink Exchange but i did adore wicked lovely, so once (if) i finnish Fragile Eternity i'll have to see if I'm even interested in Radiant Shadows at that point, i feel as though i'm only in it to see if Aislinn ends up with Seth

Sian Grove I totally agree with you, I usually read a book in 2 days or less and this one has taken me 6 weeks and I was only half way through then, I thought I was a really boring book and didn't continue to read it, I doubt I will read books 4 and 5 now either.
