Where I received the book: I received this book in exchange for an honest review through the author.
Summary: Adriana once again finds herself on the verge of another coronation, but this time as Sebastian Dalman’s demon queen. Disguised as her protector for five years, he had guarded her closely as the head of her guard while keeping his identity hidden from everyone, including her. Now, Sebastian has claimed back what was rightfully his, the demon scepter and his betrothed—Adriana. But in a land of demons, secrets dwell deep and they have a nasty habit of revealing themselves.
i don’t even know where to begin with this review. i was so excited to read this book, especially because i loved the first two books. this book started bad, right up till the point i decided not to go any further. (i read past half way btw.)
my biggest problem with this book is how unreasonable the main character was. like this dude steals her kingdom (as in becomes king), kidnaps her dad, then tries to forcefully marry her because they were ‘engaged since they were children’. all the while, adriana shouldn’t trust this guy but happily does everything she can to save him. she doesn’t love him, she loves the other guy and they’re both trying to kill each other. she knows how bad the first dude was but she continues to try save him, even when her dad returns and tries to kill him (rightfully). idk nothing she was doing made any sense compared to the first two books.
and all adriana seems to be able to do is cry. i swear to god, there’s nothing more than a pathetic crybaby when she’s the ONLY female in the bloody book. ‘i can’t do this, i can’t do that. i’ll let the boys save me’ ugH why?
not to mention that everything was so predictable. the book is relatively short, i should’ve finished it with no problem, but it pissed me off at how easily i could guess what was going to happen. also, i want to point out /SPOILER/ when the floor caved in and everyone fell through, they saw dead people at the bottom except all the main characters survived??? adriana survived the fall because of that guy with the dragon. another guy had a phoenix, but what about the other three or however many? shouldn’t they have died too??????? doesn’t even make sense.
Anyway, i rated this book 2 stars when it was probably only worth one. i don’t recommend this book unless you’re a sjm fan and thought the ooc characterisations in queen of shadows was okay. sorry i probably shouldn’t have said that. but anyway, don’t read this book.
