I’d like to thank Enticing Journey for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So this is the 3rd book from the Sinister Fairy Tales Collection, I have loved the other 2 which meant I had very high expectations, they were not met sadly. I was very disappointed by this book we’ll start with what I liked.
The world building was amazing, I loved the world building. That’s the part of this novel that I really enjoyed and it is what actually kept me reading because if not for that I would have given up on this novel.
I could not connect with the characters at all.
It all got a little confusing, I was finding it very hard to keep up with what was happening. Now I know this is part of the series of Ryze according to Goodreads and I feel like the fact it was part of another series led up to me being confused. I felt like some things were missing for people who haven’t read that series. I just felt extremely lost and not lost in a good way. I feel like this has happened because the author knows that characters from the other series so well she may forget that new readers don’t and the little things we do need to know.
It could also be the reason why I didn’t get this novel as much is because my greek mythology knowledge isn’t really there. I remember learning an odd bit at school but other than that nothing.
So I’m really disappointed that I didn’t enjoy this, but I feel like it’s more me than the book maybe? I don’t know I just really got lost and couldn’t connect with the characters and connecting to the characters is always a big thing for me.
