Again, another book I read in less than 24 hours…
The beginning was excellent. I loved Karou and her blue hair. I adored the mystery and the characters, the imagery and the language. The first half was beautiful. I loved Zuzanna alot – she was super funny and great.
I can’t say I loved where the story went after that. The romance was a bit instalove, and I never really like it when the present story is related so strongly to the past. It was a little predictable in that sense. The light humour also sort of disappeared. I needed more Zuzanna!
Even still, it was so beautifully written. I just really couldn’t get into the last 30% or so.
I’ll still read the rest of the trilogy in hope that it returns to the magic of the first half.
I adore the cover on this one.
