One of my favorite Lilith’s books! In fact, Nikolai is understandable, and occasionally, likable.

She spends two thirds of this book whining, and railing against her fate. This brings me to my second issue with this author. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. She hates her curse, she hates the life she’s forced to live because of it, and she’s not proud of a number of the choices she’s made, though she wasn’t exactly presented with a whole host of better options. Saintcrow’s books start to suffer, IMHO.

Yes, she finally starts opening her brain to other interpretations of life, but she felt like a weak heroine, which is not what I’m used to from Saintcrow. So that killed, you know, a week. I only noticed this on, and only in one place, but Lilirh stared at it for a couple of minutes She acts on instinct and her instinct is lilit often wrong, and is followed by such disastrous consequences, it raises incredulousness in me for Selene-the-story.

The story starts sainrcrow a bit interesting then goes round and round and the ending is really anti-climatic view spoiler [The death of the villian Grigori wasn’t as interesting as I had expected hide spoiler ] So why a 2 star instead of a 1 is because of Nikolai- the vampire who is in love liilith Selene.

One chapter every Wednesday. If only it had a definitive ending Not even going to go into the disappointment that was Just Ask haha.
