OMG! Loved this story...
This is the first book I've read by Ms. Kelley and I must say, it was beyond anything I expected. This one is a very unique take in this genre. It's intense, beautiful, lyrical, hilarious, loving, heartbreaking and sensual. The history lesson you get here and the way things are woven, how information is given, is not only clear in its reveal, but it's given in a way where you don't have information overload or become bored. Especially since this is a book that's world building. Nothing dragged. Every aspect was interesting/intriguing.
Vike & Lacy I loved their dynamic. Hot, heartwarming, heartbreaking & intense. *blushes*
I fell in love with every character in this book. (I'm really crushin on Myth, BIG TIME. I WANT his book like NOW!)
I gasped out loud with scenes concerning the villains. I KNEW this was going to be a great read for me when only 3% in the novel, my heart was completely shattered. I couldn't nor did I want to look away after that... The only thing I regret is starting this series before all or at least 3 or 4 books were already out. (Shellie, this is your fault, woman!) LOL
I can't wait to dive into the next one. Fall is just too far away *pouts*
This one ends on an HEA. But it's a series with an ongoing plot.
I strongly suggest you start with book 1, if you are reading this review after the other books have been released. It sets up the story and all the characters. The world building etc..
I would HIGHLY recommend this read.
