So I have offically finished the book. Now to say that I loved this book and could not put it down would be a huge lie. The book was ok. Imagine me saying this with a shoulder shrug. It didn't really captivate me. That is not to say I dislike the author. I like some of her work, and after talking to Darla D, I came to the conclusion that I don't like this series. I think this character is horrible. I find her to be more dim than an old light buld, constantly failing to learn her lessons.
One such example would be in the finale of the first book she pays off her debts, but in the begining of the second book [pictured left] she's in debt again and can't understand why the bill collectors are after her. Could it be possible to have this series then without her needing to be so mindlessly stupid? I will finish this series out, I believe I have three more books and then never EVER re-read these. I love re-reading books but this series will not be one of them.
But on the good side I get to read IRON KISSED. I am so excited and can't wait. It will be a refreshing piece of work to read for a change. A main character who is smart, strong willed, and doesn't buy mindless stuff.
