A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
I absolutely adored this book. I can't really say what made me like it so much. It was beautifully written, I loved the narrators voice and how every character had a distinct personality. The plot twists were exhilarating and kept me guessing until the end. This is defiantly one of the best books I've had the pleasure of reading this year.
I really, really, really, really liked Rowan. Having read the prequel helped A LOT, but even though he was secretive and mysterious, this time around, I still found a spot in my heart to actually care about him and his well being. Though it seems like Rowan and Kalin's relationship became what it became out of the blue, I still enjoyed this book.
Kalin was the protected, innocent daughter that had to make a big change. Though it started out very stereotypical, by the middle of the book you could almost see the originality flowing off the plot line. I liked Kalin as a character. She wasn't whiney and annoying. She actually tried to fight for what's right and questioned traditions that were imposed on her. I liked seeing she had a back bone.
I loved seeing Marcus again! I also didn't realize that Ariel was his love until it was mentioned to Kalin in the novel. Oops...=]
Even though I loved this book there were a few things that rubbed me the wrong way. The first was the expression 'Whatevs'. I have never used it and haven't heard anyone use it so it sounded forced to me. Also when Kalin drinks the wine (if you read the book you will know what I'm talking about). My question becomes: Why accept an OPEN drink in the first place? Last but not least, I hated the part when Kalin just blew up at Ariel for no apparent reason, except maybe her paranoia.
Many thanks to the author for not leaving off with a cliffhanger. I'll be anxiously awaiting the continuation of Rowan and Kailin's adventures!
