My Rating: 3.75 Stars
I have a hard time rating this book. I don't know whether I should give it a 3.5 or a 4 stars. This book was okay. It had nothing to do with the writing style or the characters, I liked them book. It's mostly how it was told. The beginning was a little dull for me and confusing. Even after reading this, I'm still confused about most things, especially with that ending. The characters did explain it, but I'm probably not that smart enough to understand them.
The Bledray were awesome, I can best describe them as soul-sucking vampires. The way the author writes them, they weren't like ghouls you think about. That was my first time reading ghouls like them, which is refreshing.
Wait, as I write this, I just had a "OMG' moment. Okay. I didn't expect that, I just remember who the stranger is. Okay. I have a goofy smile on my face now. She got me good.
Okay, my two favorite characters were Lael and Gabriella. Like good head badass women, I see you. I didn't care so much for the doctor and the archaeologist, but I see why they were important to the story, I just didn't connect with them. Rick really didn't get on my nerves like I thought he would from reading in his POV in the beginning. The detective was...I don't know how I feel about him to be honest, I like him I guess.
The battle scenes were awesome, I flew right through them, devouring every page.
The ending though. That ending. I didn't expect that at all...like at all. I definitely stared at my Kindle in complete shock for a solid minute. I'm still not over it and I finished this book at 6:30 AM. I don't know what to do with myself.
I would recommend this, it's an enjoyable read, definitely different from my normal reads.
