The characters are vast and in this book . They are complex and well written. Lilja is a complicated lady she seems so sweet and innocent at first but as you read you find out she is quite kick ass . Another notable character is Skothiam Feltcraft. He is the patriarch of the family that is in charge of keeping the three books safe. He is fighting relentless evils with a team. He is a very strong character but you can see the weight of the world is on his shoulders . He works hard to keep everyone safe . There are so many characters in this book and they all play an important part in keeping the story going
This book has so much going on with so many twists and turns . You sometimes don't know if you are coming or going. The author takes us down some pretty dark pathways especially with the sex trafficking aspect of the book . There is a touch of BDSM also in the book which to me was kind of off putting. I wish the author could of went into more about the books and the lore behind them . Also more into the rivalry of the two families . I found that to be a lot more interesting and sucked me in big time . Also a few times when I was reading I didn't realize what characters were in the chapter until almost the end of the chapter.
Overall I did enjoy this book, the author has a way with words that will leave you breathless and wanting more . He will keep you on the edge of your set and make you want for more . I will say this is the first book in the series so it does have a cliff hanger . So if you want an intense dark urban fantasy that will take you on a rollercoaster ride . Check out DANCE OF THE BUTTERFLY by Scott Carruba
In the beginning I found it hard to keep track of characters. It reminded me a lot of reading a play script. Conversations happened without a hint as to which character was speaking. This was a little off putting, taking several days to get through a handful of chapters.
And then the author sucks you in with his villian..
And then the author sucks you in further with his vigilante...
From the moment you truly get into the "meat" of the story; the vigilante, Skot, and Lilja keep you focused, turning page after page to see what happens to each of them. How they put clues together, the relationship that follows. Skot and Lilja gave me a book hangover; and can't wait to crack open the next chapter in their lives!
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thriller. It truly had it all!
Scott Carruba's style is very descriptive and detailed, and I could easily picture the characters and places in my mind while I was reading.
Overall Dance of the Butterfly is a great book and recommend it to anyone who likes dark urban fantasy horror, or wants to get introduced into that scene. I can't wait for story to continue.
