I was, unfortunately, disappointed in this book. Given that I enjoyed the Grace's Cove series, and the two books before this one, I had higher expectations. However, there seemed to be a genuine lack in this story that left me feeling like I wasted my time reading it.
May contain spoilers:::::
First off, the whole Loch back-story, though could have potentially been beneficial to the story, I found that it could have easily been done away with, to give more attention to the actual story. And he was just an annoying male anyway.
Secondly, I love Bianca and Seamus, I really do, buuuuut.....Well, in this book they felt as though they made it too easy. Gwen didn't have this existential crisis finding out everything, and really, Loch knew what was happening, so he could have just been the informer to Gwen (and the readers). I think they might have been a slight detriment to the romance building too.
Third. The romance. It killed me. There was no work, hardly any conversation, and no chemistry. It was teenage, and too fast. Even though we assume they will be together, it isn't ever that easy, and it was disappointing to get to the end of the book and realize, "oh, this is it."
Fourth. I thought the siren/fae royalty thing might have been too much. Don't get me wrong, I love the fantastical, but in this scenario, I would have preferred the main concept and a little more work on the overall plot. It felt out of place, and more of a distraction to everything else that could have been/should have been going on.
Sorry my review is less than positive. I will be buying the next one, I just really expected a little more from this.
