I wasn't able to finish the book. It gets two stars because it's refreshing to see a paranormal romance that doesn't involve the girl falling in love with the vampire in the first two pages, plus Sunshine had her nice moments.
However this could do nothing against the crazy amount of infodump the reader is subjected to at the worst possible moments. Whenever a climactic plot point was approaching, the story would stop on its tracks, breaking pace completely, so I could get ten pages of explanations that had been kept from me until then, and could have been mentioned before. Of course this brand new information would suddenly change everything we were expecting. It was bewildering the first time and got progressively infuriating. I got halfway through the book and this had happened already four or five times times. Along with the fact that Sunshine will spend 40 pages running around the exact same ideas ("oh no! does this mean i have a bond with a vampire? doesn't it? does it? a bond with a vampire! how do i feel about this? do i have one? no? oh god, i may have a bond with a vampire!") while hiding important information that should have, at some point, creeped up in her mental soliloquies instead of being dumped on you the next time she faces a crisis ("surprise! i'm a wizard!")....Continua
I wish I could say something different ...but guys let's face the truth...this book is just...disappointing!
I really liked this book. It has interesting plot. Maybe a little slowmoving but still good. I would have liked it even more if the end was a little bit different. I had a feeling that the book was cut off short, though it wasn't. Just the satisfaction from the read book didn't come....Continua
I don't want to be mean or anything, but was it hard to read this book or what. I guess the story was good, I guess the characters were okay, I guess the plot was original (quite) and the writing was good. But I just COULDN'T FIND IT IN MYSELF TO FOCUS on the book!! I felt myself drifting away ALL THE TIME. And that's something I never do!! I had to go back a few pages over and over again, to remember where exactly I was. Sometimes I was really proud of myself, because I was so focused on the book, but after a few minutes I would realize that, what the hell, I was so busy congratulating myself that I had forgotten to pay attention to the book. Again.
So I didn't exactly dislike it, but I didn't really get into it, either, and it was a challenge to read it. Actually, there were so many details and tangents, that I'm not sure I would have been able to follow the plot continuously even if I was focused. And, by the way, chapters are great inventions, you know. For people who can't read all the book at once, who I guess is everyone....Continua
