20.0% "Evy is way too hard in this book. Her "badass bitch" status is one thing but she is so bitter & angry. Because of her anger, it makes her not a likeable character. At one point, I was hoping the goblin would kick her ass. That is when I knew I needed to set the book down." 8 comments

30.0% "Angry Evy! Your constant grumpy/angry screw the world attitude is annoying. I know you've had it bad, and the world is a mess but come on...."

57.0% "Call me determined... I'm picking this one up AGAIN. I've stopped it twice. Not because it was bad but because it is so damn depressing, it is more depressing than some of the teen angst stuff I come across. Evy gets stabbed, slashed, poisoned, torn up and threatened more than most UF female lead characters combined and I'm only just past the 50% mark!"

70.0% "OMG...now the torture after the last round of torture. Evy...I'm hoping for your permanent death even...enough is enough chickie!"
09/08/2011
80.0% "Evy has given an entire new meaning to "giving someone the finger". Ok, I'm glad we are through round #8 of torture Evy. Of course, we have new problems with loverboy missing but at least I can look forward to someone else's torture for once (I'm joking people..please don't take me seriously)." 6 comments

90.0% "All I can say about this book is I'm exhausted on behalf of Evy. Please give the girl a break. Forget a vacation, how about one day off from torture. That's not too much to ask right?"

Christen (GoldiloxReads and Whimsify) I've heard that the first one in this series was terrific and the second one was kind of blah. How is the third one?

You are exactly right. 1st one was excellent, 2nd was just so-so and so far, this one is good but I just started so it is too early to tell. I hope it is like book 1 though.


Bastard I'm of a different mind. Didn't like the first one. Liked the second one a lot, until the 2nd half (hated the motel room scene and on). I've yet to read this one though, but I think it has been improving.

And if I go by your comments, I think this will be action packed, which is more my style.

I'm just hoping someone kills Wyatt. He's the weak link in the series for me.

It is definitely action packed. However, the action is more focused on the "act" of inflicting pain on Evy. The actual violence and torture did not bother me, it was the use of the violence and torture as nothing but a filler to replace actual story content.
Even though I did not like this book, I will read the next book because I still enjoy the series and I hope that the next book is much better.


Shelley Michelle I recv'd this from my query "Yes, poor Evy has been through a lot, especially in this book. I can't promise a big break in the next book (emotionally, anyway), but other people do take a majority of the physical damage. ;)

Rane Sounds like something from Hostel movie with alot of gory/gross/close your eyes torture and not alot of plot..

If you took out every time Evy was being beat up/tortured or she was doing the beating up, there would probably be about 50 pages of plot and that is it!
