I started this book because my good pal Danny over at Bewitched Bookworms is madly, and completely in love with this series.
As a general rule: If Danny loves it, then I love it.
Well....I am sad to say that I just didn't get into this book as much as she did. I did like it, but there was things that just bothered me to no end.
Mackayla is just your typical 22 yr. old party girl. She doesn't take life to seriously. Working at her local bar, hanging with friends, sun bathing by the pool, and knows more about the color of nail polish than a girl should, in my opinion.
Her life was perfect. It was easy....and then the phone rang. Nothing would ever be the same after that day. The day Alina died. The day that stemmed a series events, unraveling Macs life one detail at a time. The world would never be as simple as the world she thought she knew...
Moning paints a great new world of darkness lurking in plain site. I love the idea that there is both good and bad fae. I love the setting in Dublin and the "dark zone." I even love Barrons and all his bras, stone cold comments. What can I say I fall for the bad boys with secrets, and no answers. It must be that element of danger that I like so much. *winks*
And Barrons has DANGER written all over him.
While over all I think this story is going to turn out to be great, epic even. (I've heard the next book is waaaayyyy better) This book just didn't quite live up to my expectations. I guess my main problem was with Mac. She was just sooo superficial at times, alot of times, that I thought I was going to lose it. I mean seriously why do I care that you are wearing Iceberry Pink nail polish, or Guys-like-pink lipstick?
Then again maybe that is just me, considering the fact that I have NO idea what the name of my nail polish is, but if I was to guess I would say something like Ravens Flock At Night? And that's when I actually wear it. SO I mean I'm just not that into the super girly stuff lolz.
Ok so that was pretty much my only complaint, but it happened so often that i simply couldn't over look it. That's why this is getting only 3 stars from me.
Giving credit where it's due:
I do have to say though that at the very end when Mac steps up to the plate and kicks some serious butt....yea that was pretty much awesome, and I am hoping I will see more of that Mac in books to come. That's a Mac that I could get used to!!
Bottom line I am looking forward to seeing where this goes from here, and now I'm off to read the next installment!
