When Mia Turner receives word that brother has been kidnapped while on an expedition in Mexico, she receives explicit directions not try to find him but she does. That was her first mistake her second was seeking out King to help find him because the price he wants to find her brother isn’t money, but Mia herself. She now belongs to King and when he seems to know things that he should never know, she’s questioning what he is as well as how far he will go to make certain that she does as she’s told.
This book does end on a cliffhanger as many of Mimi’s books do but the next book is already out so don’t fret. I’ve already bought book 2 and am in hopes that we find out exactly King is. I don’t believe that he is the Devil as Mia suspects but I do feel that he has to be supernatural in some way. A very intriguing read to say the least that will keep you guessing what will happen next right up the end!
Now, I know the story is a trilogy and this is just the first part, but I really feel like a lot of the inner thoughts clogged up the writing. If a lot of that had been trimmed down, I feel like it could've fit the whole story in one book instead of three. Instead we got a lot of whining, a big old mess, and no real information. As a matter of fact, we got almost nothing as far as the real story is concerned. I understand that King's character is very secretive and isn't about to go rambling off information to Mia easily, but even the small bits of explanation were kind of weak. I vaguely know what King does, vaguely know what the bad guy does, and vaguely know that there's an item of importance and a place where the rich and powerful get together to barter. That's what I got from this book besides Mia panting over King's body and him telling her that she's just not his type even though he is a man and he could make an exception. Be still my beating heart for that budding romance.
I almost liked King as a character, except that he - for all his power and knowledge and whatever - can't control Mia or at least get her to understand the consequences of her actions. Mia was obviously annoying as other reviewers have said. But Mack, well, he was the best one in the whole book. You get more from his short statements, his loyalty, his attitude, than you do either of the main characters. It's too bad the story isn't about him. But even he can't save the story and I won't be reading more.
The basic premise of this book is that Mia's younger brother, Justin goes missing in an archaeology dig. At first Mia tries on her own to find out what happened but when shady things happen she has no choice but to find someone else - King. A mysterious, potentially supernatural being who can find anyone, anywhere...
There's a sharp thin difference between spirited defiant heroines and stupid, sullen and difficult ones. Mia Turner, unfortunately reads like she's more than a few brain cells too short for that light bulb. Must be all that alcohol binging - studies DO show that alcohol abuse from a young age does cause brain cell death. That would explain why Mia is completely insufferable.
1. MANY times, she has admitted that King isn't someone to be crossed. He can kill people with his mind (lol...), he KNOWS things that she's thinking, who she's dated - everything almost without her having to tell him and yet she tries to run away like an idiot. YES because taking a train is SO HARD for King to find when he can find people across countries.
2. A typical conversation Mia is capable of is like that annoying friend you go to to the movies with who keeps asking, "why are they getting on they plane? Why are the robots rebelling? Why is he the one?" WHEN watching the movie will answer all the questions. In addition, 99% of her questions are absolutely a waste of space and words.
King: "You were about to tell your parents the truth."
Mia: "how do you know?"
UM...because in the previous 70% of the book up until now, he's know everything you were about to do AND shown up. I've concluded she's of below average intelligence than the common person. Anyway one else would have asked, "What would telling the truth have done that you stopped me?" It's obvious he has either super human or supernatural or non human abilities. Do you really have to ask EVERY TIME? EVERY TIME without fail?
3. Mia is incapable of making smart or logical choices. She knows some people are out to get her in Mexico - BEST IDEA ever to run away to her brother's apartment ALONE. Could there be thugs out to rape and torture her there? Maybe, but I'm Mia and I'm really dumb. She knows that Vaughn guy is dangerous in London, King killed his people...GREAT IDEA to run away AGAIN and risk being captured.
4. She's constantly angry at King for telling her what to do and disobeys him continually when she's shown absolutely NO capability to deal with anything on her own. In fact, he's been nothing but civil to her considering. If I were him and she constantly asked me completely daft CAPTAIN F-ING obvious questions I'd have choked her to death already. It's like someone asking you where you're going, even though they know and asking you over and over again if you're going there. She acts like a petulant, annoying, below average intelligence child throughout the novel.
5. Her stupidity not only puts herself at risk, but Mack and her brother when King has to waste time chasing her down and "keeping her safe." For me, she's selfish not only stupid. It's her ego that refuses to let her obey King who obviously knows what he's doing.
There are no redeeming qualities to the main character who is the textbook definition of stupid. Stupid does not make a character good to relate to.
Oh and the artifact? I wasn't sure if her brother had the artifact and left it for King, or if something else happened. I love how Mia's brother DECEIVES her, steals something valuable and plays fire with dangerous people and yet she thinks he's an angel and thinks King is the devil when King has shown himself to stay true to his word while her brother lies and steals. I won't be reading any more books - there's no hope, she's too stupid to stand.
