dark mysterious medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix

  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated

‘There is nothing more dangerous than a woman who owns who she is and apologizes to no one.’

Mixed feelings about this one. I understand people’s woes about Emilia being like a different character in this book in comparison to KotW, but she’s in hell, she’s unfiltered, keeping personified sins as company and she’s been through a lot. So I kinda feel a bit defensive of her, I’m here for feminine rage. Do I feel it went from 0-100? Yes. I get that maybe Kerri wanted to go in a different direction, more NA than YA but maybe a little build up on that would’ve been better. I did guess the secret but the plot? Nooooooo bloody clue whats going on there pal.

But I finally what period this series is set in, HUZZAH.
