Hmm, actually the narrative seems to show an awareness of the... issues with the age thing. That makes me feel better.

I'm enjoying this one - there's always something interesting happening that keeps me wanting to keep reading. The only thing I am not sure of yet is the potential romance. I think I'm a little weirded out by the age difference. I have to think about it.

Feel like all the interesting bits of this book were in the last few pages.

Was Kavinsky ever mentioned in the first book?

I'm really glad that a sequel is planned. This ends with some things left unanswered!

I think sometimes I feel like I don't QUITE relate to these characters and their motives, my understanding is vague and I think, "But why? Why?" , but they're so passionate that I get caught up anyway. And then in the last part of the book I get it and the whole rest of the book makes much more sense.

I am having a bit of a hard time imagining a man who is lion-like and takes up all the space. I find myself inserting Thor into the narrative. It sort of works..

Stayed up late reading this and then picked it up as soon as I woke up this morning. It really got addictive towards say the last half? I loved it while still feeling like it had it's problems: you have to suspend disbelief because the heroine & hero act VERY illogical, no safe sex talk (I guess that's not sexy? it should be sexy), and I really wish I knew French. But otherwise: yeah, swoony bits all over the place.

Picked up at BEA. This main character seems to have social anxiety? Writes slash fanfiction(!) about characters that sound kind of like this world's version of Harry Potter & ... is it Draco Malfoy if he were a vampire? Anyway, I'm tickled.

Janice (Janicu) is finished with House of Shadows
Nice little standalone fantasy, but leaves the door ajar for further adventures for the characters. Sort of a multi-protagonist story. I liked it. Wouldn't have minded getting to know individual characters a bit more, but didn't feel like there was room for that and to have the plot work so neatly and well-synchronized.

I love the girl pretending to be a boy trope, and enjoying the Chinese-inspired world here.

I want to give this a 3.5. Almost a 4 but there were a couple of things I found problematic. I think I am starting to really feel tired of certain words used to describe a Asian person and this book is unlucky enough to be there when my tether is being reached.. because I think I've let other books have a "pass" before.

Not entirely a fan of what Michael Lee calls Jeane, but Manning has a lot of imperfect characters in her books so I'm seeing where this will go. Expecting these two to grow.

Ended on a nice note but sort of meandered on its way there.
