The Never King by Nikki St. Crowe
The magic of never land is tied to Peter Pan’s shadow, but it’s been missing for a long time. It’s location? Darlings’ inherited memories. The only problem being, to abstract the memories, a Darling has to go mad. With this new Darling, Pan is running out of time. Therefore he and his boys have to hope this one is differed.
The Never King is a delicious take on Peter Pan. Nikki St Crowe writing style is beautiful. Each description was beautifully done. Made you want to be in the book to experience everything yourself. The other thing I loved was how the man character, Winnie, stayed focus on the fact she will go mad. I really enjoyed how she dealt with it her whole life. With everything her mother put her through, one would’ve thought Winnie would have run away or hated her mom. I know I would’ve, but seeing Winnie concerned with her mother’s well being even though she shouldn’t have been at such a young age, let’s you know that she had to sacrifice a childhood in order to help her mother out.
It touches me in a heartwarming way because I can relate in a way. The fear of going mad is always there. It is one trauma away. With Winnie not wanting to be like her mother, she puts up a fight in her own way. The girl is full of a fire that one can only get when out through what she had to endure growing up. The story is a bit dirty at parts with the adult content. There isn’t a whole lot of adult content just two scenes, however with the book being under 200 pages, two scenes can take up a good portion of the novel. Even with it there is doesn’t take away from the story. If anything, it adds to it.
As I do not wish to give away too much and with it being so short, I will have to go ahead and rate The Never King by Nikki St Crowe. The rating I would give it is four out of five stars. It was an excellent read but left me wanting more. I would recommend it to all my smutt lovers. It’s a dark romance with reverse harem quality to it. However, it is very short and will leaving you wanting more. More information, more events and more adult content.
A Soul to Keep by Opal Reyne
Reia is going to be sacrificed because her village believes her to be a harbinger of bad omens. She lived her life in loneliness and just wants to travel the world to see what is out there. However, she is to be the sacrifice to keep her village safe. When he arrives for her, Reia holds firm and leaves with him. He discusses what his goal is. He wants a human to give him their soul. Reia wants freedom and she knows if she can just leave his home and make is safely through the veil, she could be free to move around and see the world. However, she slowly begins to fall for the Dusk Walker.
A Soul to Keep by Opal Reyne is like a Beauty and the Beast retelling. It is dark but has the same kind of qualities that made me love Beauty and the Beast. It has a girl, who is beautiful inside and out and a monster who wishes for a female’s affections. Though the story is still different and even mentions Beauty and the Beast, it still holds that same quality but with a twist. In this story, Reia is our beauty, but she is not liked by anyone in her village. Due to an event that happened leaving her the only one to survive, Reia is labeled the harbinger of bad omens. With demons eating humans, she is often blamed for the unfortunate events that happen when demons get hungry. This ultimately is why she has some fire in her. Having been trapped in her village, she begins to dream of exploring the world until she is be offered as a bride to a Dusk Walker. This information allows us to see why she is so rebellious and has determination unlike anyone else.
Throughout the story, the thought of escaping the Dusk Walker who is holding her captive, we find Reia often battling herself to escape. Even though she knows it would be a bad idea, she still wants to travel the world The fact this ideal does not change, it is clear the Dusk Walker will do anything for her, and this helps change the how it will happen. The story is cute because in this dark retelling, the beast, or Dusk Walker, needs Reia to give him her soul. As the story goes on, it makes it impossible to understand what that really means. However, it does play on both their minds as he wants her to be with him forever and she is not sure if living forever sounds all that good. After all, to live forever sounds kind of boring to me too. What can you do to keep yourself sane and busy, eventually, you will run out of things to do. But to each their own.
With each arc in the story, it brings the two together, which brings us some spicy scenes. These scenes are very different from our normal adult content that we all love so much. After all, one of them is not even human. It is interesting how the author created our male’s genital section. It is kind of weird at first, but it makes sense that a nonhuman would not have the same genitals. The whole idea on Dusk Walkers was utterly amazing. The more information we learn, the more we want to know more. In this case I was dying for the next tidbit of information to be given. Though I will say I was a little disappointed in the world building, but I understand why it was done the way it was. When demons can’t stand the sunlight, it makes sense completely.
Even with the small disappointment I felt about the world, I still loved the book. It was interesting and very entertaining. So, with that being said, I will rate A Soul to Keep five out of five stars. It had its spice and it only seemed to add to the story, even if it was a little weird at first. I cannot say I would recommend this to anyone, as I do feel it is for mature audiences only. It is still highly recommended, and I am hoping to see more from this author. Happy Reading!
End of Month Recap
Its that time again. I know we are posting this late but work and life had gotten in the way. Not to mention I was finishing another book in what little free time I had. My daughter is starting preschool in a week, so it has been busy with running around to prepare for it. So, let’s dive in.
In August I read a total of sixteen books. That includes the two ARCs that I obtained from the author Shelby Manuel. Thank you again Shelby for allowing me to read your books and review them. Out of all the books I read, I adored The Cat and Mouse duet by H.D. Carlton. Those reviews have yet to make it to my blog, but that is due to now being able to post every day. With my current schedule, as you may have already figured out, I am posting every other day. This is for two reasons. One, I need time to read. I have a full-time job as tech support and am a full-time parent. So, I don’t always have tons of time to read. I usually try to read an hour a day, after work when my child is in bed. The second reason being, I also like to see if any of you have suggestions, whether it’s a favorite book that you think I would like or a book you want to see reviewed. I know we are still growing, but please feel free to leave comments or email me if you have any recommendations. After all, I am trying to help others find their next obsession.
I would like to state, this last month, I rented a lot of books from Kindle Unlimited to read on my iPad. I enjoyed quite a bit of them. It was a good month. Especially since two books I looked forward to being released. I have high hopes for September.
Speaking of September, my goal will be to read at least fifteen books with some spooky ones in there. However, since my TBR is a million books deep, I will expand my spooky books to include anything with triggers or monsters in it and focus on actual horror stories in October. I know one of which will be a reread just because its that time of the year where my daughter and I watch Nightmare Before Christmas and then I will end up rereading Long Live the Pumpkin Queen. Which has already been reviewed and you should check it out if you love The Nightmare before Christmas story. I don’t have any books that I wish to pick up right now, so no upcoming release dates. Well, besides Wasteland: The Factions of Red River, which will be released October 1st. So, if those reviews enticed you, you know when both books will be out as Fog was released back in May.
Well, with all that information given, I believe we should wrap up our monthly recap and next months goals. If you have any recommendations, please drop me a comment. I am always looking for that next obsession. I know my current one is still awaiting a third book and I am hoping to review the first two for you guys soon. For now, happy reading.
Wastland: the Factions of Red River book 2 by Shelby Manuel
Riley is the third leader of Fog and has a crush on her brothers’ friend and right hand man, Mick. So even though they are in danger and being targeted still in what might be an upcoming war, Riley is still determined to have Mick. Even if he seems desperate to keep her away from him and anything else that could hurt her. With Ally and her being targeted the most, Riley needs to be in her toes while continuing to help those in need. However, the awkwardness with Mick after sharing their first kiss in the way, Riley can’t stop thinking about him.
Mick has a troubled past and it only got worse after his trip into the Wasteland. His love for Riley causes him to stress whenever they get to close. Now that they kisses, he can’t stand to be near her because he is worried he will only hurt her more. Not to mention her brother might not take well to their relationship. So Mick plans to keep his distance, only Riley won’t let him. After there is word the girls are being targeted does he realize that he may be the only one standing between Riley and their enemies.
I need to say thank you to Shelby Manuel for allowing to let me read this book before it was released on October 1st of 2022. I received this copy as an ARC (advanced reader copy). Before I jump onto the review portion of this, I would also like to say if you like spice you should check out her work.
Wasteland: The Factions of Red River by Shelby Manuel is the second book in The Factions of Red River series. It follows shortly behind Fog. It even back tracks a little as the main characters switch to Riley and Mick. While you can read it as a stand-alone as it goes over the information from the first book, I would still recommend reading Fog first. It gives more back story into the world and started the world building with ease. Having read Fog first, I can say it helped understanding Wasteland even more. I do want to point out that the main characters we follow are different than the first book, and while I normally can’t stand that kind of thing, it works in this series. The story plot amazes me. I don’t think I will ever get over the story.
However, I want to address the negatives first so that we can focus on the positives. Let’s start with the triggers. Now Shelby Manuel does a great job in going over the triggers first and I have no qualms about that. But what I do have a problem with is how spicy it made it sound and it just lacked a little in my standards. The spice was there, and the triggers hold true, I guess I was just hoping to be spicier than it was. The adult content didn’t take from the story and once again only added to it. So that seemed to be alright. The other issue I had was a few spelling errors that I hope get caught before release the main one being Theo’s name in one part became “The”. It made me do a triple take. But the errors were reduced this time around.
On to our positives. Even though we follow different characters, we still get some information on the characters we watch last book. It was nice to seem them interact and even see how their relationships form. Not to mention, I also really enjoyed how Wasteland technically picks up a little before the end of Fog. It goes over information that we didn’t get to see, but also provides that information onto why things are the way they are at the beginning. But wait there is more? It also continues the story line on the upcoming possible war between factions. I loved that even though the book focused on Riley and Mick’s relationship, the story line continues nicely. It was pleasing to me.
Getting to know Riley and Mick in their own ways, only showed how diverse these characters are. I feel this book is a good example of how opposites attract. Riley’s personality didn’t strike me as one that would get along with Mick, or even allow her to stand on her own, but I was completely wrong. It had me thinking about my own relationship a few times, and if I am honest with it, I did finally understand why my husband and I work so well. I never thought about it before. I believe that best part of Shelby’s writing is that is causes me to pause and think. After all, I do look for certain things in post-apocalyptic stories. This book was still a beautiful even with the errors.
Considering all of what was said prior, I will be rating this book three out of four stars. As I stated there wasn’t as much spice as I was expecting based on the triggers. I do love the story line and the character switch. It allowed us to still see how Ally and Jax is doing, but from an outsider’s perspective and it didn’t leave me with too many questions, except for, what’s next for our characters? Who is next? I believe you should pick this book up if you loved Fog. You should be able to devour this book as well. It will release October first, so keep an eye out and be prepared!
Fog: The Factions of red River By Shelby Manuel
The world fell apart and gangs fought for power to run different cities. In Red River, there are four factions, living in a barely stable truce. Ally, a nurse who works in the neutral territory, but lives in Fog, finds herself running into one of the most dangerous men to reside in Fog. After having created walls to keep herself safe and at a distance from other people, Ally must learn that her current way of living isn’t really living. The only question being, will Jax the Ax and the second leader under his brother Theo of the Fog Faction, force his way into her heart and break those walls down?
Jaxon, also known as Jax the Ax, has been running errands and is the man you don’t want to mess with in Fog. He is the type to kill and ask questions. Until one errand has him meet a beautiful woman with more fire than he has ever met. She challenges him and drives him crazy. Growing up, he was taught about soulmates and Jax thinks this fiery vixen is his. The only problem? This vixen is dead set on not letting him get too close. He knows he needs to show her she is loved and cherished, but he isn’t sure how to do it or the past that keeps her from trusting him.
Before I begin this review, I wanted to say I got this as a free copy for a review from the author herself. I really am glad I was able to get this as an ARC in prelude to the second book Wasteland.
Fog: The Factions of Red River by Shelby Manuel is a post-apocalyptic romance. The story takes place in the city of Red River, where it has been divided amongst four factions. The faction that the story takes place is Fog, ran by the McHales. When starting the book, I read the prologue, which gives back story and I feel it did an amazing job. I was intrigued by the end of it, but as I went through the book, I was in love with the story. It was beautifully written and kept some twists in there to throw me off my game. Though, I can proudly say I kind of knew the ending halfway through. But don’t we all figure things out before the author wants us too?
The characters were diverse enough to keep things interesting, but they all were tough in their own ways. It shows they must deal with a lot in this new world. The post-apocalyptic world is a dog-eat-dog world, and not in the way our world is now. However, I can say that this book is how I see our world becoming. It brings up a lot of thoughts and things that we already face today. Like the drug use and the crime rates. I have to say, I think I enjoyed that part the most. Not because I’m all for crimes and drugs, but because it is easier to relate to everything in the book. It has that way to draw you in and make you listen.
The will they won’t they thing the book has going on also helped keep things entertaining. Though the book involves a lot of adult content, it doesn’t really take away from the story. I will say, however, that sometimes it felt a little too much and I wanted to get to the action. What can I say, I like direct paths. It did add to the story in the sense that it made the characters closer, while also showing each person’s side of things. The character perspective changes were a nice touch in this book. It showed how the characters felt, what was going on in the city and what a possible outcome of the story would be.
Due to all these wonderful things, I have to give Fog: The Factions of Red River, its credit. I wasn’t sure how I would rate this book. I found some spelling errors in the beginning, but it was only a handful of mistakes. Mistakes I even make when writing my reviews. I don’t know if it was overlooked or what have you, but they were tiny errors and could easily blend in with the story. Due to these errors, I can’t justify any other rating by four out of five stars. I loved the story plot and enjoyed the realism in there, but the errors and predictability can be a bit of a negative thing. I do still recommend reading it, though. Fog: The Factions of Red River is truly a good book.
Solo Leveling Vol 5 by Chugong
The time has come to visit the double dungeon again, and with hopes of getting answers about the system, Jinwoo raid crashes to protect a smaller guild to get such answers. However, this time things are different. It appears no other hunters are allowed in, and the Angel statue has a tear for Jinwoo with the promise of answers for the completion of said test. While he is undergoing this test to get answers, an S Rank dungeon breaks in Japan. Although Jinwoo is worried, he has to survive the tests before figuring out what to do.
Once again, I am blown away but Chugong and his writing style. In Solo Leveling Vol 5, we not only continue to watch Jinwoo grow more powerful, but we also get some information to leave us wanting more. Released on August 19, 2022, this light novel is the shortest one yet. However, the saying “Big things come in small packages,” holds true for this newest addition to the story. It was jam packed in action and information. The best parts being the action and new information. Watching Jinwoo, or in this case reading about it, defeat that which almost killed him in the first book was a bittersweet scene.
He faced his enemies with confidence and well thought out strategy that he adapted to while battling. He was terrified but collected first time around, but this time, you could see the determination. It becomes awfully clear that he plans on protecting hunters and humans alike by taking on these trials to better himself. It makes him even more loveable. Most people would be in it for fame and fortune, but Jinwoo seems to be in it for not just leveling up, but to protect those who can’t protect themselves. I believe this is such a heartwarming trait that it is hard not to love him.
The ending was not shocking but left me completely dying for the next book. It looks like he will go to Japan, but we won’t know for sure until the next book releases sometime in November. Which you know I will seek out immediately. After all I bought this one the day of after a small hunt. I am absolutely in love with this series and cannot wait. These light novels, along with the beautiful manga, makes it hard to wait for the anime that should come out next year.
With everything being said, with maybe a tad bit of a spoiler, I have to rate Solo Leveling Vol 5 four out of five stars. I’m absolutely addicted to this series and can’t wait for it all to wrap up. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is, the beginning has given me too high of hopes of getting more information and answers, but I feel as if we got next to no answers with a lot more questions. That annoys me slightly, since the next novel won’t be out until November. That’s a long wait and I feel, that while it will be worth it, that I will literally go insane waiting. It just that good!
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas
The war is over but the aftermath is just starting. With everyone needing to heal and Winter Solstice around the corner, everyone is busy rebuilding their cities and trying to get past all the brutality the war wrought on the people. Feyre and her family are trying to help everyone while also trying to overcome her hat they went through. Buying each other gifts and giving each other support is one of the biggest ways Feyre is helping make the world a better place. Feyre even learns that creating has helped her through some tough times and tries to plan to help others with their tough times. Nothing like Winter Solstice to help bring people together and help them move past the awful things they had to endure.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas is like a Christmas special in the middle of a television show. There isn’t any dark and cruel things happening. It was a nice reprieve from the story line, showing how much we all need our friends and families after going through such dark and trying times. It is the shortest of the series this far, but it is also the most touching. Not because anyone is declaring their love or doing cute things, but because of the lessons or ideals behind what is going on.
I will say that even though I’m not into what I deem as filler, it was a nice turn of events. Since every book before this was jam packed with action suspense and strategic planning, seeing our main characters do something like supporting one another, trying to heal and find ways to make the world more peaceful, was nice. I really enjoyed Feyre’s parts as each chapter seemed to focus on one character or another. Not because she is my favorite and I loved seeing her grow as a person, but because she is keeping her promise on making the world a better place. In a way they all are in their own ways but Feyre definitely did something she has not only promised to do, but something that will in turn make their world a more beautiful place to live.
There wasn’t a lot of conflict in A Court of Frost and Starlight, but what can one expect in this particular book. Because it was a Christmas Special in a way, it was very docile compared to what it could have been. Romance did seem to be an underlying concept as I would only assume after everything they went through, but to me it left me not really wanting to continue the series. And not just because I don’t have the last book. The reason I say this is because I felt it wrapped up the series.
What I mean by that is that even in the parts that had me wanting more, just to gather information, I was still left feeling content with it at the end. It just felt right to leave it like that. With all this being said, I would rate this novel three out of five stars. It was good but not my cup of tea so to speak. I tend to not care about books without conflict. It seems the world is going to be better just from this book and in my opinion was a great way to end a series.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
Feyre and the rest of the Court of Dreamers are preparing for war. With Hybern making its own moves, they don’t have a choice but to try to form alliance where they can. With spies having eyes everywhere and on everyone, there is no telling who is hiding the truth and who is going to stab them in the back. All that matters is surviving and saving as many people from disaster as possible. Feyre must learn how to master herself and lead now that more is on the line than before. With the mystery on how to stop the cauldron and protect her friends and family, Feyre may have too much on her plate for once.
Wow, just wow! I thought the last book, A Court of Mist and Fury was action packed. A Court or Wings and Ruin though! It had suspense, tears, action, betrayal and so much more. Each page was better than the last. I was hooked throughout the entire thing. This addition to the series is quite big at just under seven hundred pages, but it was worth every minute of the time it took to read it. I can say Sarah J Mass out did herself on this one!
I felt the first couple chapters where dry, but I felt it was necessary to the story. As the characters continue to grow and adjust plans, it’s clear that they are smart enough to know what they are doing but not eager enough to make mistakes. Though I felt a lot of mistakes were made by the characters throughout the narrative. There was so much betrayal and distrust between the High Lords and other characters that I couldn’t help but wonder how they would ever accomplish anything. It made me want to shake some of them and be like “What are you going to do to protect what’s yours?” Many of times I wanted to smack characters just to make sure they understood they were being complete pains.
I suppose they needed to be pains to keep the story entertaining, but it was frustrating. I also found the little secrets in A Court if Wings and Ruin to be delightful. I was surprised a few times as information came out. It was so bad at times I wanted to be able to read faster just to see what surprise I was going to get next. Especially with the high focus on the war. Spoiler alert: The war didn’t last as long as one might think. If I am honest, I wish there has been a bit more battling. However, I did enjoy the lies being revealed and the making up between characters. It makes them feel more real because of their conflicts with each other.
A Court of Wings and Ruin was beautifully written, and the plot moved smoothly. I really sank my teeth into this story, even though I had struggled in the first book. I will say the way it ended though, doesn’t leave me wanting more. It was so beautiful with how it was finished, that I am nervous for the next book. I dislike that about the endings in this series. Especially with this one. I am not sure what more could be done, but I guess I will find out.
A Court of Wings and Ruin is receiving four out of five stars as a rating, it was delightful and suspenseful. It does hit a lot of different emotions and draws the reader in quickly. The story also has the cute romance in there was well. I can’t recommend one reading it without at least reading the others. The information seems to rely on the reader having known the entire story between characters and what not. However, A Court of Wings and Ruin and well as A Court of Mist and Fury, made reading the first one worth it to me.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
With the threat now gone, Feyre and Tamlin look forward to the joining of beings with matrimony. However, with Feyre still broken and haunted and with her bargain with Rhysand, she finds she no longer wants the marriage, since she needs to heal and figure out her new powers. Especially since now that she is keeping her end of the bargain by hanging around Rhysand, that she learns war is coming. Without knowing what her real powers are, she is set on learning them and who she is so that she can protect her people. After all without her being healed and knowing her powers, what will become of Feyre?
Let me start this off with, I didn’t care so much for A Court of Thorns and Roses. I wasn’t into Tamlin and didn’t really feel like it ended in a way to have a series. I actually worried about reading A Court of Mist and Fury because of that. However, I absolutely loved it. There were twists that had me screaming “Yes” at times. I teared up quite a bit and kept calling Feyre an idiot at other times. I was able to fully sink my teeth into this book.
I’m very pleased to say Rhysand is a major player in this book. He does continue to have the prick like personality that I can’t help but love. He pushed Feyre, which I was glad to see. Not because I love that kind of dynamitic but because it helped Feyre grow. She was returned to life as a fae, meaning there was bound to be left over residual abilities from the High Lords who granted her life after her death in the last book. Rhys was dead set on training her. Which differs from how Tamlin feels. These differences between the two characters is great.
Throughout the story, I have so far decided I absolutely hate Tamlin. He is overly protective. To the point of locking Feyre up. Its not wonder that wedding has her doubting herself. It does have you questioning why did she let it go so far when he was keeping her out of the loop and behind closed doors, especially when she is obviously hurting. I found it to be nauseating. However, as the story progresses, that pairing seems to change.
I loved learning more about Rhys and why he does what he does. After finishing the six hundred page book, I was glad I liked him from the beginning. He is very cunning and logical, always trying to do what he needs to protect that in which he loves. Messing with Feyre was just a little fun, even though it did help her not only survive the first book, but also taught her that she didn’t need to rely on anyone to do things. After all, she has powers now too.
Though it was long, it had its romance, which seemed to develop slowly and made me sit on edge. With characters being sneaky and the upcoming war, causing everyone to be on edge, it was very easy to become obsessed with the story. I am very happy I decided to continue the series.
I would rate A Court of Mist and Fury five out of five stars. It was delightful and thrilling. There was plenty of actions, romance and new places to learn to love. It was beautifully written and left on a cliff hanger, making you want more. After all, the war has yet to begin. I also want to see how Feyre grows and become her own warrior and protector. So even though the first book, I had my doubts, the series is still promising. If you decide to check out this series, keep in mind you do need to read the first one to get the full understanding of everything. This second book only expands on it and adds more depth to the characters.
A Court of Thorns and Roses
Feyre is just a human girl who hunts to keep her family a float, when one night she kills a wolf, not knowing how it would turn her life upside down. Now held in act of a treaty she knows nothing about, Feyre must figure a way home before she falls in love. With aomething dark and sinister waiting to destroy the human world, Feyre has to find how to fight it will be relying on what she learned from her faerie friends.
How could one dead wolf bring all this to light in just a few months and how will Feyre save the human world if she can’t fight that which she truly loves?
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas was a very interesting book. With the heroine, Feyre having so many shortcomings, it makes her an underdog in a way. I can’t say she is my favorite character, but I can say she is definitely the one that seemed to grow the most. She is also the character one might be able to relate to the easiest. She has her insecurities, and she is stubborn, but it makes her a great character to follow. Throughout the book you can see her find her passions and finally be herself the longer she is with Tamlin. She fights hard and as it would seem, even if she is illiterate, she can be extremely adaptable to whatever is thrown her way. There were many situations where we had to watch her be quick on her feet and come up with her own way of getting through things.
I feel, after reading this book, that I am a little confused on why it’s a series, though there was a loose end at the end of the book. While reading it, I found myself wondering why certain things weren’t mentioned again. Though they were at the end, but I felt it was made to be just a cursory glance when it popped up even if it left a feeling of unimportance to Feyre upon first reading it. Do not get me wrong I felt a whole wide range of emotions while reading this book but at the end I still feel it ended nicely.
The other thing I found rather difficult to swallow was the lack of information on certain characters. We learn a lot about Feyre and the sinister thing brewing, but I wish to know more about some of the side characters, such as Rhys and the other courts. Granted we get a bit of information about them, and we see a bit of Rhys but I don’t understand him as much as I would like. He is going to be my obsession for this book series. He is dark and mysterious, and he knows how to play games to get what he wants. Rhys has a lot going for him but I can’t help but wonder about him. Maybe the next book will give me more.
This fantasy world was intriguing to learn about though. With it being decided amongst the humans and the faeries, I loved learning the differences. One thing I am curious about is if the Court of Spring is always springtime does that mean the court of night is always nighttime? Same with the other courts. It is an interesting prospect to think about. The human parts of the world seem to go through the reasons as normal, but the faerie realm does not? It had me wondering why and if it is slowly base on their magic. A thought I will ponder for the next few hours.
With all, I would rate this wonderful fantasy/romance book three out of five stars. A Court of Thorns and Roses was definitely an amazing read, minus my complaints, the book is well written. I felt more emotions than I thought. I couldn’t believe I was terrified to read this book. It was great and entertaining. It can be a bit gory at times, with all the blood and death, but it was still something I highly recommend. The only reason it didn’t get five stars is because at the end I was left wondering where the series would go. With it being five books, I couldn’t figure out what would take it so long to wrap up and finish. I felt it ended fine minus one loose thread. Otherwise, I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
