Allmänna fakta



It had a solid start that hooked me in and I was getting more and more involved in the story excited to see where it led, but for me the story really fell short with the lack of world building. The characters were cool and I liked them but their history, how they worked, and their motives for why they do what they do all fell short for me. I was excited to learn more about how magic would unfold and what makes this world unique and learn how magic works but it’s all just pretty vague without anything interesting going on. Im sure the following books will pick up but I did not enjoy it enough to continue the series.… (mer)

I'm not sure what happened with this third book. I really liked the first two but this one just dragged until the last third. I read the first two and listened to this one so maybe it was that I couldn't skim the less interesting part. Whatever the reason, I did not find this one as entertaining as the first two in the series!

Ok, I’ll be honest. I actually didn’t want to like this book. I wanted it to be a Twilight clone, with an annoying bossy vampire and a characterless lady protagonist. And in some ways, it is.

I did get annoyed with Matthew being being a big bossy bully, and with him being impossibly handsome and attractive all the time. I did get annoyed with everyone treating Diana like a helpless kid and she just leaning back and letting people bathe her and feed her and whatever.

I did not learn anything useful from this book, I did not change, it never profoundly moved me in any way. But still I read it, and kept reading it, laughing at the more humorous parts, shaking my head at the annoying parts, picking it up whenever I was free to.

I also started reading the second book in the series as soon as I finished this. So yeah. What can I say, apparently I do like it. Quite a lot.
