Story is so-so. You can walk away and never wonder what happens to these characters. I just don't care much anymore. Parts of this book could have been really good, but the writing is teenager-ish, and the lead character gets really, really boring. Maybe it's the readers fault that the main character is boring, snobbish and really, really snarky; and not in a good way! I purchased this forth audible book hoping the reader would eventually improve and not get on my nerves so much, so I could at least finish the story line, but she's worse this time around. And the supposed main romantic interest is just as dull. I really don't care about these characters much anymore to purchase further audible books
from this author.
Really good last book in this series (I count this series as one of my all-time favorite of this genre) except for one really horrible awful thing that happens that was awful and horrible.
Anyway, well-written and very involving (except for that awful horrible thing that I mentioned above).
good story with a very big twist at the end. cant wait to see where it goes from here
That ^ should be the title of the series. Holloway's pronunciation kills me. Someone buy Neill a thesaurus. NY Times best selling author? Really?
Overall 2/5 stars and that's because I didn't expect her to go down the plot rabbit hole at all but she dipped an entire foot inside. I was pleasantly surprised when all parties involved in the mess were revealed. There were ties that I did not anticipate so, kudos on that note. Take the previous compliment with a grain of salt because, as Merit once said, it's mostly "non-cerebral" otherwise.
I've found I can be entertained by this series as long as I imagine it's Buffy: TVS in written form. Except, you know, they are all supposed to be 25+ yet they act like they are 15 tops.
My biggest gripe is the never-ending parade of Mary Sues and Gary Stus(sp?). How about some "vampires" that were turned when they were much older? Throw in some relatable characters that aren't the cliche plain-but-still-young-&-super-model-hot-looking. If I could, I would ask Neill to stop pandering and playing it safe. Break away from the Made for Everyone formula and take risks.
I AM pleased with the ending though. Good riddance. My full review on the series will be posted on the last book. Well, if I make it that far.
I had this series in my wish list for awhile. I've listened to all the books back to back. this book all most made me cry because of Merritt's lost chance at love.
I have loved all the books so far and this one won't disappoint you. It made me angry, it made me laugh and cry. I do believe this is the best book of the series so far. The ending is not what you expect, which is the best kind of ending, right?
Also I like that they have used the same narrator in all the audible books so far. I like it much better that way. The voices and way of speech for the characters are always the same.
While the narrator still needs to work on her male voices and seems to reuse the same voice for many, I'm getting used to it. She seemed to do a better job with keeping names and pronunciations the same throughout. I don't want to give any spoilers away but there are some HUGE plot twists in the end of this book. A few I saw coming, and a few that will come as a complete surprise. This book had me crying at the end.
