To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Comparing this book to A Court of Thorns and Roses is like comparing a fish to an alligator. Yes, they both involve fae but they are two completely different animals. I purchased this book because I love bloody fairytales. I grew up with the Grimm Brothers for bedtime stories so I enjoy when other authors create war torn and ravaged fantasy realms. This book unfortunately has come up wanting. The pacing was off, the dialogue at times was clunky, some of the scenes jumped from one thought to another without anything linking the two, and at the climax everything was neatly wrapped up in a little bow seemingly without any consequence. This would possibly be an okay book for a thirteen year old just getting into darker fantasy but for me it missed the mark big time.
