I heard some amazing things about this book and thought I should give it a try. And even though I loved the brothers and how unique and amzing they all were in their own special way I expected more. There was so much promise of action which we never get to witness, because Wrath's and Beth's lustful moments were getting in the way and trust me after a while I got bored of them. I wanted to see the fighs.
The Wrath and Beth moments were good even though they moved way to fast in their relationship but through them I realized that the world Ward has created was not one I was so fond of. First off Vampires acted more on their insticts, I little bit too much. They were creatures of lust and rage and I realized that they were always following their insticts like animals, that's not good for me. Surprizingly I found Mr. X, the bad guy, to be the most inteligent person in the whole book. I love a man with a plan. Another thing I didn't really enjoy about the book was that it felt like the whole society of the Vampires wasn't really in favour of the females. Why aren't there any female warriors?
I was almost over reading this book and about to give it 4 stars when another character started lusting over a woman, and that was all the cheesy quotes and dialogs I could take. I consider myself too much of a feminist to swoon over cheesy quotes like that and I remember giving the dialogs an eyeroll every now and then.
Still, with the promise of more action and more scenes about the rest of the brothers I will try my luck with the next book. Oh, yeah, and I am rooting for Mr. X. (My first time rooting for the bad guy, but he is brilliant)

Ugh cheesy dialogue! I hate that, This is one series I just can't get excited over.ReplyDelete
I just finished this book and I felt very similar to how you did. I only gave it 2 stars though and felt I was being generous. The lusty moments really overshadowed the entire plot and I wish there had been more action or at least plot forward momentum to keep me interested, I doubt I will even try the rest of the series. Great review!ReplyDelete
