Angry rant/ Review

 

Truthfully I was pretty excited when I heard that JLA was going to release a new book on the lux series, and when I heard it was from Daemon point of view I might’ve pierced my brother’s ear drums from screaming and squealing loudly. Because guys, this is Daemon Black we’re talking about the hot sexy alien living next door, the tragic asshole that stole my heart at 16 years old, my first book boyfriend EVER!

But….. but……. BUT……

I thought that this would have something refreshing, have something I didn’t already know.  Maybe new freaking scenes!!

God I’m disappointed, probably a little pissed.

 

 It’s not that I didn’t like it. The first book was pretty decent. Those Katy-Daemon scenes were everything that I remembered and loved, funny, snarky, hot…. I really missed them. But by the end of the first I realized that there was nothing, absolutely nothing interesting happening and when I got the  2nd and 3rd book I pretty much was like (read a couple of pages, then skip. Skip. Skip. Read a couple more then skip. Skip. Skip…..) To the point where I finished them in mere hours!

 

Maybe to someone else who did not read the series before they might’ve appreciate this book more, I honestly don’t get why this book was published if it was just to make the exact same replica of Obsidian, this is….. *no offense to the author* but the general idea is pretty dumb.


Overview

This is a waste of money and energy AND time for the author and readers who already read the lux series.

 

 

I can’t decide for those who haven’t read the serie.

 

But if you want to try this serie then I advise you to start with the original one, obsidian. There’s more mystery and excitement over there than this one.

 

Again, I don’t get why this book was published. Who freaking approved of this?!

 



NOTE TO PUBLISHERS: this is wrong and those covers are F***ING UGLY!!!

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

Synopsys:

 

 

 

Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut.

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

 

 

 

Review:

 

 

“I received this from netGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.”

 

 

The story is quite enjoyable, intriguing in some aspects.
But as interesting the plot was I still had issues with the book, it was soo frustratingly slow, it lost it focus on the main cause and drifted off to tell other events without any results. It was implied that Kat could’ve done something many times, Or at least improvised. But she did nothing; she just cowered behind her search partner Evan and just waitedwined her death.
And how the hell could Evan have that much control whilst the other (as it was told many time that she was strong) loose it every single time?

As for the character,in my opinion were not well harmonized, it’s like watching a movie where the story is interesting but unfortunately played by bad actorscharacters.
I can’t follow their conversation, attitude…ect, I’m always rolling my or puffing my irritation with them.

Overall, I'm Glad we got more insight on the murder, to know the victims, main suspects, their heritage, unraveling all the mystery. But the drama was too much for my liking.
