DNF at 35%

I waited years to give this series a try and, honestly, it turned out the way I thought it would. With a DNF. Now, I think the premise of the story is very interesting. However, I wasn't a fan of how it was carried out. I could see the pointless love triangle (or rectangle, tbh) when I was way more interested in the sisterly relationship that was there. It just felt like there was so much lost in translation. What was in Garber's head was good, but it didn't turn out on paper like I would have liked it to. So, I'm leaving this series as is. Not one I'll feel sad I'm missing out on.
