Not because the works of Lovecraft are upheld and honored. Far from it. But because it was so hilariously bad. I was laughing a lot simply because it was so over the top at times. Furthermore, I can honestly say that, for the most part, Andi Slate is a much better main character than Bella Swan, and this version of the Cthulhu mythos is...Unique to say the least.
If this is your first introduction to Cthulhu, then I suggest looking elsewhere. But if you want a Young Adult Paranormal Romance that plays it straight, even when it could've gone to insane levels of parody, then this is the book for you.
In many ways, it is a typical teenage paranormal romance. Girl in high school meets mysterious boy at school, falls in love with him, bad guys attack, and third wheel gets jealous, same stuff, different title. The author though did forget to add in the scene where the boy saves her from the moving vehicle.
One thing I have noticed was that the author did not seem to care for her main protagonist. At times, I got the feeling that she wrote this story just to torture the main character. Her name is Andromeda. They call her Andi for short. She whines about how boring her life is. She likes to use the word “obey” a lot. She seems to personify the concept of “life beginning at man” even more than the typical Bella Swan or Anastasia Steele.
If you are looking for a different take on paranormal romance, this book may be up your alley. I think Twilight haters may be more interested in this story than the fans though. My final word of warning would be to not take this story too seriously.
