Overall, I enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written. I went into this book expecting more of the supernatural aspect that I've come accustomed..Show More » to with Kelley Armstrong... vampires/werewolves/etc. It was not like her other books, however, for which I was pleasantly surprised. It took me a while to get beyond my expectations, but once I did, I enjoyed the story from beginning to end.
I normally do not like two narrators, unless it is to tell the story from male and female perspective. In this case, the second narrator was reading from more than one person's perspective. It was confusing at first, but I adapted. I grew to enjoy hearing the "other" side of things at the end of almost every chapter. It brought depth to the story, which could not have been seen otherwise. It also helped open up more questions for not only this book, but the rest of the series as well. I'm interested to see where this story goes.
There is one flaw in this story. The main narrator, Carine Montbertrand, made me cringe! At the beginning of each chapter, she was not quite relaxed and therefore had a high nasally tone that sounded like she is plugging her nose for the first 2 minutes of a chapter. CRINGE. That sound is like nails on a chalkboard for me! Yikes!! Other than that, though, she did a great job switching between narrating and alternating between voices, though. There were very few flaws there. I plan to continue with the series.
I've been reading Kelley since I found her first book of the otherworld. I've been hooked on her writing. Her books never disappoint! This is no exce..Show More »ption. This book leaves us with more answers than question (thank god). I feel a deep affinity to her characters. Now we just need more to see what Liv decides and what it brings on. And I'm dying to know!!!
