What I thought: 

What a disappointment…

I really liked Wonderwoman, enjoyed Batman, so I expected to like this one as well, but alas.. it was quite bad..

The chapter were Luke was introduced was really confusing, I did not get who he was or why I needed to read about him. I think I read the chapter twice or maybe three times before I decided to just continue on and hope that the chapter was not important.

I was really annoyed that in the first couple of chapters Selina is all like ´I do everything for my sister´, and then her sister isn´t mentioned until the last two chapters.. And I got that they couldn´t be together, and that she didn´t want to talk about her sister to other people, but she could have thought about her ??

Also I did not care for any of the characters. And I just found the book really boring.. It was not that there was not anything happening but I just did not care what they were doing..

The reason for giving this book 2 stars instead of 1 is that there were some sentences that I found funny!

I do consider Sarah J Maas as one of my auto-buy authors, but maybe she is good in writing her genre, and not stuff outside the TOG or ACOTAR world.. So the next time she writes something else, I will probably wait for some reviews before buying and reading the book!


Come talk to me?
