A dark and flirty read
on October 28, 2014
Logan, Triss's love interest, brings much needed flirtatiousness and comic relief to the story. He also definitely has a hot, swoon worthy look, a bad boy vibe that flirts with darkness, and a charming way of protecting Triss from danger.
The knowledge of herbs, flowers, their healing properties and uses as protective elements was both accurate and informative.
The mysterious disappearance of Triss's mother was intriguing and suggestive, making the reader hunger for the secrets she's surely hiding.
Triss is extremely annoyingly self-righteous to the point where her character was aggravating.
The love story was too simple, too easy, and really cheesy with big speeches about how love made one discovery one's self and feel all sorts of crazy emotions. Generally, that wouldn't be such a bad thing but it was excessive, so it lost some of its meaning.
The enemy is not scary, sort of boring, and anticlimactic.
The lonely souls were mentioned briefly, showed up a couple of times, but didn't cause much damage. More emphasis should have been placed on these beings if the book it titled after them.
The Witch Avenue coven was barely significant.
