“This book was just ok for me. I wanted to love it but there were several little things scattered throughout the story that I really didn't like. There were several parts of the book that were so similar to Obsidian that the voice in my head was saying "wow, where have I heard that before?" I often felt that Serena had no sense of self preservation when it came to Hunter. He admits that he fed from her, more than once! And she all thinks after being asleep for days is"yeah, but he's so hot" and" wow what a good kisser". He explains that violence ,sex and feeding are linked in a set cycle for the Arum and that information doesn't seem to influence Serena at all. She still thinks "yeah, but he's so hot". I just couldn't root for her. I was thinking that maybe it would be best for everyone if Hunter just finished her off the next time they made out.
I did enjoy getting the Arum perspective . I loved hearing the other side of the story about the two races and learning about Hunter's siblings.
Reading an adult story in the Lux world was great and I'm so glad I did but it fell below my expectations.
