I'm very much on the fence with these books. On one hand, I enjoy how readable they are, how gripping the story is, and that there are many things that I like about the characters. I feel like this is a very well-written series.
On the other, I constantly feel like I'm closing my eyes on things that are sending alarms blaring in my head. First of all, the over-fascination with gore and torture. As we have established in the previous book, the torture is employed here mostly as a favourite pass time. It's not necessary. They do it because at the very least they are too used to it even consider in excessive, and they might actually enjoy it. Then, there is still the issue with certain character settings and developments not really ringing/reading true. The vampires here just don't really feel like I can believe that they were around for centuries. And, more importantly with this book, have been around each other for centuries. There are certain developments in this book specifically, where it didn't feel believable that characters would act in a certain way if they were who we were supposed to believe them to be.
There are very glaring rifts between character settings and their actions here that just keep bothering me.
I don't want to go too in detail with spoilers, but there were a lot of development in this book that I felt just don't sit well with me. Side characters being thrown away left and right, main character changing in a way that makes me feel she is going to embrace her 'dark side' too much and then actually lose all those qualities that kept me reading these books...
I don't know. It's a well-written book, but it didn't make me excited to keep reading the series... At most I'm in a 'I'll try the next one will just hope that it doesn't go where I'm afraid this is going'.
