My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The story had an excellent start and I liked that it was told in first person.
Unfortunately, my expectations were a little too high and ended in a DNF.
– I liked that we dive right into the story from the get-go. A lot happens, which is also its ultimate downfall for me.
What didn’t work:
-The timelines move back and forth at warp speed making it confusing. It was like listening to someone with a million thoughts speaking a mile a minute. You had to keep up to follow.
– Because there’s so much going on with alternating timelines, the story doesn’t properly unfold. Before one portion of the story finishes, the next one begins.
The final straw for me was when the story takes place in the mortal world. The narration went from classic fairytale to contemporary YA. It was like I was reading an entirely different story.
There others who enjoyed it, I just wasn’t one of them..sorry..
Thank you Netgalley & Harlequin teen for my ARC.
