A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
I had very high expectations from this novel since the beginning. I've heard so may people praising this story and the hero that I thought, I have to get a piece of the action too. I won't go as far and say that I hated the novel, but I didn't love it either. I'm stuck in neutral.
The only thing the ticked me off was the ending. If it had had a HAPPY ending I probably would have felt better finishing this story. I'm a sucker for happily-ever-afters, because the way I see it, if in my day-to-day life I'm not guaranteed a happy ending then all the characters I get to know when I read a book has to have one PERIOD.
I usually hate different POV's in book in general because it's usually boy and girl and I can never agree with what goes on in the guys' head, so I tend to get angry at the poor guy and totally miss the concept of the story. It was a great surprise that I actually liked what I was reading when I started getting in Dex's head. He didn't swear every 5 words and never once commented on a female body part (I thank you for that Mrs. Hebert). I found it kind of annoying that Dex couldn't make up his mind on killing her or not. One moment it's love and the next "no I HAVE to do this and that" and blah blah blah. Let's just say it got old fast.
I loved the butler. He came off as all knowing since the beginning and I always suspected that he was more involved in the turn of events, even though it never came up in the story.
Piper's chapters were really boring and didn't add any new information to the story as a whole. Personally I could have done without them and even more chapters of Dex. Even though I loved Frankie's few one-liners.
The only thing that I didn't get was the stone concept. It was really weird and I didn't understand the turn of events. I mean couldn't G.R. get another stone to represent that person, even after the initial stone was disposed of?
