As a fan of Rebel Carter’s historical series, Gold Sky, I figured I would enjoy her take on paranormal romance. Sadly this one didn’t work for me. I didn’t really like Teresa or Cliff. Both felt very flat and needed more character development, especially Cliff.
One of my biggest issues was the pacing of this story though. It was off and felt very choppy in some scenes which made it hard to enjoy the book. We also get thrown into this world and there is very little backstory or explanation for it. The story really needed more world development for me to understand the dynamics of this magical world.
I just couldn’t stay interested in this book which is why I am DNFing. I will still continue to read her books but this one just didn’t work for me.
