it was ok
bookshelves: m-f-fiction, series, meh, waste-of-time

the first part of the book (the past) was fairly well-written and definitely interesting- giving depth to acheron's motivations throughout this series. By the time I got to the second part, i was excited to read what kenyon had set out for acheron's present. disappointment begins to describe how i felt while reading. The second part felt like it was written in a rush with little thought put into the characters. tory is basically one-dimensional; the romance between tory and acheron is contrived and, again, rushed. my interest in even acheron's personality wavered. furthermore, the little "cute" one-liners were tossed about with annoying regularity, quickly ceased being funny, and just became irritating and affected.

all said, I was definitely disappointed by this book which i had eagerly anticipated for months. sadly, it seems that kenyon's writing has become a bit stale, especially when compared to the earliest books in this series. and i really wonder what the editors were thinking letting this book be published as is.

Jason Bradley The second half really disappointed me too. It turned into a cookie cutter romance when it could have been so much more.

Erin me too... the second part is a big "blah!"
