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.
On a whim, without sufficient research, I purchased the series kindle version. This was not my cup of tea, as the series is essentially a long romance novel, apparently for young people. While aspects of the story were good, the struggles of our leading lady were just too prolonged and repetitious. Almost all of the young men were large, good looking, had unusually colored eyes and chiseled chests, while our queen's chest fortunately was not chiseled, but voluptuous. I was hoping for something more than the helpless damsel in distress tale, but that was not to be. Ugh.
In truth, I loved book 1 of this series. Book 2 somewhat had me drag along to find out what was happening. This book did not give me much resolution. Instead I found myself skipping chapters just to finish the book. A reader can only handle the heroine/main character deal with so much suffering. It didn't inspire me to appreciate Sage. I found myself agreeing with her-put her out of her misery! This book in one word-drudgery.
I disliked how dark this book went. She was in the dark side too long. Too much torture made me uncomfortable that she wouldn't recover. Sometimes the reader can be left to imagine the rest without painting the entire picture. Especially if the outcome is too bleak. Bring back the sun and hope sooner next time. I still want to know what happens next. I will continue reading.
