I have to say I am tired of “almost really good” books. That is where this book fell for me since I loved the basic plot but the writing of it was flawed a bit.
It seemed that our heroine has some powers but we are never given anything to really grasp that says “she can do this and this” so it stays kind of nebulous and most of the time ineffective and getting her butt kicked while we throw in a bit of TSTL.
The thing that really put me out with this book is that it really had a great story to tell but it allowed our heroine to get kicked around by some scummy characters that never got any justice. We see her get shunned, beaten and almost killed by people who should be helping her and we are all supposed to hold hands and sing Kumbaya at the end ….WTF?
Throw in a basic thread all through the book of trying to find out who killed her parents and only because I don’t post spoilers but I was really off into “WTF just happened” or to be more exact what did not happen.
Allow me to caveat this review with the fact I am huge fan of revenge and violent justice and it seemed that the appalling lack of both plus throw in the most “where did that come from” sex scene that read like “I forgot to write in a sex scene so let me throw it in here”
Bottom Line: A great story poorly told IMHO and 3 Stars for that great story that did keep me reading in spite of its failings.
