Tatum is a strong female lead, but far from perfect--something I appreciate. Her traumatic past leaves her with a darker side that keeps the reader unsure of whether she is indeed the "good guy" or not. Likewise, the minor characters are colorful and likable, though I did long for more from Emmerick. On the one hand, I am so grateful that this novel doesn't fall into the predictable romance trope that is so common with YA and NA today. While there is some light chemistry between Tatum and Emmerick, this dynamic is secondary to the story itself. On the other hand, given what we learn about Emmerick and who he actually is (which is an awesome twist in of itself!), I found myself craving a deeper connection with him and wanting to know more about him.
Overall Krystal Jane Ruin nailed her debut novel and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!
I did like Tatum, though. She suffered through a horrible past, but she didn’t let it stop her. She was strong, fierce, and while not fond of her abilities at the start, she confronted her demons and learned to embrace her powers. I also liked the mysteries surrounding the past, and was eager to figure out what happened. My favorite parts were the parts set in the underground market, where Tatum sells curses. I thought that was an original and clever thought, and I wouldn’t have minded to spend some more time down there, exploring the different booths and who had what to sell.
But what troubled me a little was how many characters there were. Everything seemed to be going on all at once, and all the characters seemed busy doing so many things, it was difficult to keep track of who was doing what and what everyone was up to. The storyline also had a lot of coincidences – a few I can take, but this was just a little too coincidental for my liking.
I also didn’t like Emmerick. I felt the relationship between himand Tatum was forced, and he was just too perfect. He didn’t have any flaws, or very little flaws, and I couldn’t relate to him.
The writing was pretty engaging overall, but felt a little sloppy at parts. Overall, it’s an enjoyable, entertaining book fans of paranormal fantasy with a hint of romance will enjoy. It’s also the author’s debut book, and it’s a pretty solid debut. I look forward to what the author has in store next.
