There it is. My eternal struggle with mythological retellings. I´m not enjoying this nearly as much as "A Thousand Ships", which I loved and which, quite frankly, is the only mythological retelling I ever enjoyed reading.
This book, however, is kind of boring, I´m not invested in the two female main characters and I´m not sure what to think about Haynes stripping the story of the more supernatural elements.
This book makes me want to read the original Theban plays by Sophocles, though. Which, at this point, I think would be a more worthwhile experience.
I´m still undecided whether or not I´m going to DNF this book, but I´m dragging my feet going back to it, which isn´t a very good sign. It seems my weird reading mood is still alive and kicking.
This book is a continuation of the story told in A Curse so Dark and Lonely (an enthralling retelling of Beauty and the Beast). I loved this second book even more than the first one!
In this book, we follow Grey as he deals with the fallout of the information he learned at the end of book 1. NO SPOILERS HERE!!
