Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments I read the start and I’m so curious as to what happened to Katharine that she now has that kind of power and of course new attitude and personality as well

I cant waiiiit to knooow


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments I didn't get a chance to start this yesterday but will catch up today!


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments Up to about 30%

I'm still not feeling the whole Jules/Joseph thing at all

But I am liking this new Katharine more and more


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments Same!
I still don’t want Jules and Joseph being a couple and all

And this second book seems more exciting!


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments Im still a bit so/so about it


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments I'm up to 50% now - I don't know what it is but i'm just not feeling that invested.

I might finish the book today to get it over with haha


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments Ok I'm abuot 74% in and I think I'll leave it there for today

How are you finding it?


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments I stopped at 32% yesterday and felt the want to strangle Joseph. I also didn't understand how Pietyr did it for love. I'll try to catch up today!


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments Ok so I finished it - and I'm still not sure how I feel. I mean it wasn't bad, but the pacing was just so off to me - and I still didn't really feel like any of the relationships actually developed?

(view spoiler)


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments I’m at 56%. It’s kinda okay for me although sometimes I feel frustrated reading it. I don’t know i have mixed emotions about this book


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments Yes I get you! I also don’t know how I feel still - it’s not bad but it’s not amazing either although I like the premise


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments I dont know if the frustration with the book is something I am supposed to feel given the premise of the boon though


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments I don’t know but my frustration is more with the pacing and the relationships - not the plot - if that makes sense? Like people falling in love left right and centre with little development?


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments I get it!! There is little development with the relationships.

Also I’m sorry I stopped at 62% and will stop for now and may continue this latter part of the week because I have to catch up with schoolwork first


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments No problem! I’ll be here to discuss whenever you do!


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments OMG I just finished. I’m not sure how to describe how I feel. I think the plot was good. Some events were kind of twisted but in a good way. I felt less frustration towards the end of the book so yeah it was okay i think


Laura ☾ | 1000 comments So I finished the series - let me know what you think if you continue!


Janelle (sereneged_nelle) | 51 comments That might take a while for me but will do update you!

I might not read the rest of the series soon, sorry! Although I wanna know what you thought of it, and if I should continue on
