MY RATING: 4.5 Starts
* The author of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect less than that, I will always give my honest opinion, like it or not *
First of all I have to say that I really really enjoyed this book !
As you probably know, I am that kind of person that doesn’t read synopsis, so as you can probably guess I had no idea what this book was about before I started reading it, and when I started reading it I found that this book was about elves, and you have no idea how happy I got because of that… you really have no idea, I almost jumped with happiness because I love elves and it was exactly the subject I was in the mood to read, so good job Melissa, good job !
I rated this book 4.5 Stars and I have an explanation for that, I swear. On Goodreads my rating was 5 Stars because Goodreads doesn’t have half stars, and the thing is, I was really divided if I should give to it 5 straight Stars or “just” 4.5 Stars because I really loved this book, I did, but at the same time I didn’t want to compare it to other books I read before, those same books I rated 5 Stars, those same books I can’t forget… so I just went with 4.5 Stars still 5 on Goodreads and let’s see if the second book will deserve 5 staright Stars ! (stars, stars, stars…)
One thing I never thought I could love in this book (not because I tought the book was bad because I never tought that) was the characters and I actually did ! I really enjoyed the main character, I really liked most part of the characters in this story… normally I have a hard time getting on with the characters, and this time it was pretty cool… I enjoyed the main character since the beginning of book so that’s totally a positive point !
The thing I liked the most in this book, besides the plot of course was THAT GORGEOUS COVER ! Come on, just look at it, it is sooo beautiful, seriously and the color ? Oh lord…
So I am really excited to read the second book, I just can’t wait, I really need it really soon because I want to know what’s going to happen next… I JUST NEED TO KNOW GUYS !
Obviously that I recommend this book to everyone, so just go check it out !
