I was super excited to get an ARC of this book, I gave her previous novel 4 stars. This one is somewhat interlinked with that one, and touches on similar subjects. This one is dark fantasy and horror combined. I had hoped that I was going to absolutely love this book, however, it fell short for me in many ways, which is a bit unfortunate.
How does one rate this book? Honestly, I am struggling with it. This book was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. Between the gorgeous cover and the description I thought it was going to be a shoo in for a top five book of the year. I should know better though – and I’m going to write this review a bit differently because I feel that I can’t divide it up into the sections I normally do.
No one is more devastated than me – because I gave the first two books five stars. I LOVED this series. I’m a little upset that I am only giving this book 3.5 stars. If you want to know why, please read on! I want to cover what I enjoyed about the book first. Because there were aspects of the book that were enjoyable.
ook that I am picking it’s probably one you don’t know well. (I have a WHOLE stash of 1980’s/1990’s fantasy that I love.) You guys are going to hate me by the end. The Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling was introduced to me years ago by a good friend. Their taste was spot on in regards to this series.
