Review: Gah! I just finished it and now I'm slowly dying!!!!! I really need to read the next book. It ended at such a sad part and I really want to know what the heck is going to happen. *whimper*
Yeah! Amazing fight scenes in this one with such precision. Richelle is an expert on fighting. Those were my favorite passages. Again, amazing imagery and memsmerizing details.
Oh, and the hotness cranks up a bit. :)
The only thing that bothers me about the book, is that Richelle Mead needs to recap with a little more flow. When she talks about eventst that happened in the previous books or when she's describing a term, it's in a not so subtle way. It kinda cut into the writing, so it was obvious. I don't think that the explanations were unneccessary. I just thought that there were better ways of weaving them in.
Read these books because they really are a quite a piece.
