I received this book from the author in return of an honest review…
Before I Begin…A Huge Happy Birthday to my Mama Bear, I love you so much and am so grateful for you. You’re so supportive and I drive you absolutely insane but I couldn’t ask for a better mama to deal with my RBF and drama. You da bestest!!!
Okay! On To The Review!
I’m so terribly sad about the conclusion I’ve come to. I came into this with high hopes because the description sounded so intriguing and it has such great reviews, but within the first few chapters my expectations were dropped. Here’s why…
1. It’s very confusing. I usually can follow complex books easily but this was difficult for me. I can’t keep up with all the immediate information being thrown out.
2. Too many characters were introduced right off the bat. The amount of characters escalated so fast and I couldn’t remember who was who.
3. The language was so hard for me to understand. Words I couldn’t comprehend were written and I’m not even sure they’re real words, some of the times.
The cover is GORGEOUS. Aside from that, this book just isn’t for me. I don’t typically read Science Fiction a whole lot, but this one caught my eye. I was super interested to read it in the beginning and as I started it, it was taking me all day to read only a few pages. I didn’t have any interest in it because of the plot being so confusing. Quite a few characters were introduced very early on and I kept forgetting the relation with the others.
Too much was happening too fast. I keep trying to push myself to read more but it’s not holding my attention. I so very badly, want to give it a full chance and just read it until the end but it doesn’t hold my mind for that long. I am interested in Davyne DeSye’s other books though, I’m hoping to explore other genres she’s written. I didn’t like the roles the ‘aliens’ played in this at all. If you’re an extensive Science Fiction reader, than this might be something you’d be interested in.
I plan on gradually trying to finish it, it just may take a really long time. Maybe I will feel differently after it’s finished, and I will update my review if that is the case. As of right now it’s a DNF for me.
I greatly appreciate you sending me this, and I hope to read some of your other works. I like your style, but I didn’t like the speed at which things occurred, and the confusing aspect of the SciFi. I think if I read your historical romance books, I might enjoy them better.
