“What in life is worth a sacrifice, if not love?”
Just like the first book this one is written in a way that flows really well, making it easy to read. And still it took me soooo long to finish it. Why? I’m not quite sure. I liked the story, I liked the twists and turns taking place, I loved the new characters and the magic – and still I found myself putting the book aside instead of speeding through it.
I have a theory regarding what it might be that kept me from going – and I’m going to put that behind a cut because it might be considered a bit spoiler-y.
So what I think threw me off with this novel – and doesn’t make me too excited for the next one – is that the love triangle that was hinted at in the first book but also seemed to be finished because Calla chose Seth over Ren is back. In full force. And I didn’t want that and it and the way it was portrayed in this novel felt a bit too… ugh. Like, I don’t dislike love triangles in general. Sometimes they work very well for a story. But when it went the way as it did in this book, where Calla is basically in love with Seth and then she meets Ren again and immediately starts making out with him… yeah, that doesn’t work for me.
So that’s my reason. I do still want to read the next book and finish this trilogy, but I am not very excited about the romance anymore. The rest, however, I am very much looking forward to!
