Just One More Chapter

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.

Red Glove - Holly Black

"I’d thought that being with her would, through some power of alchemy, transmute me into being a normal guy with normal problems. When she looks at me, I see the reflection of a different self in her eyes. Someone I long to be."

 

 

This book suffered from The Curse of the Dreaded Sequel to an AWESOME First Book of a series. I don't know exactly what went wrong, maybe it was all of the extraneous subplots that clogged up the storyline, but this book was a chore to get into and rather sluggish to finish. It got the rating it did because this male protagonist MC is one of my favorites and the writing along with the character development were great though the story was in no way comparable to White Cat. I'm seriously on the fence with regards to continuing on to book #3 which is really sad because White Cat was one amazingly underappreciated though awesomely executed literary gem. Oh Cassel how I love you so but I wish I could say the same about your latest escapades. To read on or not to read on, that is the question I now face
