“I fight with myself, the contrary emotions warring with each other. I’m not at peace. Yet…I want joy. Even if it is dark, I yearn for it. The darkest joy is better than none at all. Imperfect, vital…it comes like a thief in the night and robs your heart of its energy to resist the love that has been offered.”
My thoughts: I have to be completely honest, I loved the book when it first started but as it progressed the plot and characters fell off the deep end. I mean, aside from the unrealistic developments in the story line and characterizations I was a bit flabbergasted with the angst, impractical “love at first sight” progression, and over all sappiness/cheesiness.
Also, near the ending when you reach the climax of the story it was a big, “WHAAAT?!?, what the f*#k?!” moment since it was totally surprising and unexpected. Plus too, the reasoning behind it was even more lame and disturbing.
Gosh, I don’t know what to say guys. I mean, this story had so much potential alone from the synopsis alone and it started off solid but in the end I feel like it just fell apart in the end.
I’m now kind of curious as to who or what book two in the series is going to be about since obviously in the title it implies that there is going to be another installment(s) hence on. Hmmm…
