I’m left unsure about how I feel about this book. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it because I definitely did. The problem is that I needed some type of light at the end of the tunnel, but I feel this story just gave me a loss of hope each time I thought maybe there would finally be hope. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing when looking at the entire story, but for one book to have so much disappointment I feel it could have been better.
Overall, I really love reading this series and love the way that Tricia Copeland captures the readers attention. I get that this book is shrouded in darkness, but I feel there could have been bit more to not leave me feeling like the whole book left me bereft rather than simply the ending leave me wanting more. Amy Deuchler did an amazing job! I absolutely loved the narration. I feel that each character had their own personality and they were all given their own voice. I could definitely tell each person apart. Jude and Camille are really great characters. Honestly, I understood when Camille questioned everything. Honestly when it came to intentions of others I did too. I think the characters are very well written.
The overall production went well. I am glad that I read the book. I just wanted more from it. I do recommend reading this series. I know as a whole this series is going to be amazing. I just wish the next book was out already to give some hope back into a book that gave me so much doom. I think once the next book comes out I may go back and give this book a second chance, but for now I feel it’s incomplete.
