Actually, the first one was not one of my best reads (despite it being good!) because I found the characters empty and a little boring, and the only reason I bought this book is because I was enchanted by the king himself who seemed sassy and just great. I was not disappointed. The story in itself is not AMAZING, but the relationship between the two is really cute and it makes a great read.
Very much enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed romance and sexy elves!
I just wanted to add that the reason why I gave it a 4 star is because I just wish that there was more of a cat and mouse chase between these two.. I also wanted to learn more of Talions past and how he felt about it..
Maggie holds herself back from their relationship due to events in her past, which is completely reasonable at first. But her constant fighting and some quite childish temper tantrums made it unbelievable that anyone would want to stick by her, bond or not. It was difficult to believe she was supposed to be in her 20s and not a teenager. She's so self-absorbed she doesn't even stop to question how her actions affect Talion. Simply talking to him about so many things would've alleviated half the darn book! Heaven forbid her character actually act like a mature woman instead of jumping to anger and conclusions. While I can't fault only her, as Talion's own closed lips didn't help, she was by far the worst offender. Even when she managed to draw similarities between their reasons for secrets she always justified her actions with weak excuses; making her seem unable to account for her own faults.
Right along with her stubbornness is her constant ignoring of danger to herself. She doesn't seem to concern herself with the possibility of danger hanging over her head despite being a victim of an attack early on. She just goes along her merry way without second thoughts to political plots or unsavory characters, which is ridiculous. You'd think one would have a better sense of self-preservation during times of turmoil. Instead she acts oblivious and like it's a hindrance to her independence the entire time, focusing all her thoughts on how she's so resistant to her new situation. Rather than maturely figuring out how to work things to her advantage she pouts, whines and storms off to no avail. A lot of that is done in her internal dialogue and really wore me down as a reader. As a character, she really made me dislike her and wonder what the author was thinking. Some of Maggie's traits may have been fine in smaller doses and with maturity mixed in, but with how inundated each page was with her immature nature any likeability was lost.
Despite looking forward to this book I found myself checking my progress more often than not, wondering how much longer I'd have to put up with Maggie. The book felt abnormally long and I came extremely close to just throwing in the towel a few times, but I made it through in the hope of some type of redeeming scene for her, making this book worth the effort. I didn't fully find that at the end unfortunately, but there was enough to close out their story. Hopefully her next book in this series won't feature such childish and non-developing characters.
