“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.” ― Oscar Wilde
I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it. I don't know why this sounds like a miracle in my own head but there it is.
The King has a lot of misgivings and issues, that is certainly true. What I really liked about it is that reading it wasn't a chore. It wasn't exactly the urgent i-need-to-know-NOW I've experienced with previous books but it was levels above the total disinterest I was expecting to feel.
Apart from Beth in the beginning
, too little Qhuinn and Blay (barely any) and Assail and Sola's storyline (boring), I liked it. Well, I didn't enjoy the ton of labels and pop culture references thrown in. Not sure if there were fewer of them in the past or I just failed to notice them.
Me and this book: we're okay. Passing aquaintances, might not see each other again, but part ways in good spirits.
Me and Ward's next books: We're okay, I guess. I didn't read Possession but I'm curious about the enging of the Fallen Angels series so I'll give Immortal a try. I'm interested in the Shadows too so I'll probably be reading that too. Further than that, who knows. Depends if she can hook me with a Saxton story line.
Me and Ward's BS: So done. As with Abigail Roux, I'll be keeping my distance.
