I had a lot of trouble with this book. The premise was interesting and it started out well but quickly started dragging on and on but it didn't seem to be getting anywhere important. Both Evy and Wyatt were flat almost two-dimensional and the romance between them was forced. She claims not to love him but sleeps with him anyway (seemingly out of gratitude for saving her life). The next thing you know they are in love and inseparable. Huh? It was almost as if the author needs to give them a reason to live and fight but just doesn't quite make it believable.

I thoroughly enjoyed First Break and wished the book focused more on this well developed world. It was a fascinating place and I guess it will be further explored in future books. But honestly I won't be reading them because there was just something missing from this story. I really wish I could put my finger on what's bugging me about this story. It had so much going on - vampires, halfies, goblins, elves, trolls, gargoyles, humans, magic, psychic gifts and the fey - but nothing really clicked. It was as if everything but the kitchen sink was tossed into the mix. A lot of the "extras" could easily have been introduced in later installments as they didn't have any impact on the story.

Carolyn F. I just finished and I agree something was missing. I'm not planning on reading the rest of the series either.

Barbara ★ Maybe it was just too much stuff too fast which didn't give the author time to really develop any of them. Not sure but not something I'm willing to experience again.
