My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ok, thank you Trisha Wolfe for not letting me sleep! Haha, even though this was a step in the different direction of what I'm normally used to, I will admit -- I want to get into your brain! Where do you come up with this stuff? Girl, you should be on the best selling list -- up top!
Anywhoo, my fangirling is over. For now.
I love the cover, I love the characters, and I love the loops I was thrown through over and over again. Just when I think this book couldn't get any better -- it did!
It was a neat idea that I haven't ever seen in a book -- and I ate it up like fodder. Granted, the characters had very bad potty mouths, but I still loved it! It was just... them!
I honestly don't have much to say about how much I loved this book. I just... freaking loved this book! I telly everyone I know to read it, and to read any book by Trisha Wolfe.
One thing though -- I loved the fact that Trisha Wolfe could always pull off an ending that makes me want more. However, I felt that this ending was rushed. Granted, I know that she was in a rush to get the book out and published by deadline and such, but still... I cant say Im dissapointed about it, I just wasn't expecting it. The ending was still good, but just not... that good.
Anywhoo -- 4.5 stars, and I cant wait to get a hold of Fireblood.
One more thing -- I miss Astarte! Make her come back -cries-.
