I wonder if it’s possible that Kresley Cole‘s books get better and better with each installment that comes out or I just enjoy each of them so much when first time reading them.
And I admit, I had my doubts when I realized what exactly Chloe might be. I was disappointed.
Luckily though, I didn’t stop reading as I already know from previous Cole’s books that even when I doubt, those doubts always prove unfounded.
So it was this time as well. 🙂
It actually got much better – it was one of those books where you feel the emotions of characters in your stomach while reading their dialogues. The love, the fear, the anger – it all had its share of my stomach (I do hope I’m not the only one this happens to?).
Will (MacRieve or Uilleam which I still don’t know how to pronounce) is the starting point of the story and is truly a tragic hero. There are really many connecting points to the real world we live in – child molesting for one thing even though I wonder how many people thought of that actually.
Chloe, on the other hand, is such a strong girl, I wish I had her strength of character. All KC females are strong but this is the first one I could connect to. She is truly a Baby T-Rex (her nickname) as in, she is strong of will and character, even of body, never mind her place in soccer is usually reserved for bigger people. She is also loving, fun, friendly and proud in the fairest sense of the word,. So, making such a strong female suffer and cry hurts my heart too.
I also already know I will be re-reading this book soon.
One of the things I love so much about these novels (Immortals after Dark) is all the modern references (making it all appear more real) that appear in them (case in point, Beliebers) but I am not so sure about loving the fact that she makes me root for violence. As in payback for what was done to the good guys. It seems though I condone violence in specific situations. :S
If you are ever interested in starting with a series featuring paranormal steamy romance – Kresley Cole is my first suggestion.
And now I wait for the next one…
