Rate & take
Heat Index 1 ☼ (Would have been higher if scenes weren't so repetitive)
I had the books already so I felt compelled to read to the conclusion of the series. It was a strange ride. This was the first series where instead of the writing improving with each book (or at the very least staying the same) I think the writing actually got a bit worse with each book. (See my review for book one of the series in the post below this one).
I had difficulty with how some of the bigger challenges the characters faced seemed too easily resolved, and the characters personalities were never explored too deeply. (I find it nice when you find out so much about a character that you feel in a way that you know them and can even sometimes antipate how they might react in certain situations, that did not happen here, there was very little understanding of the characters motivations). There was also a great need for a proof reading, for simple words like 'main' instead of 'mail' or 'our' instead of 'out', etc. I am not sure if these books were self published but that would explain it if they were.
Now what I did like...the author put in more plot twists than I usually see in a story and that is what kept me reading along, I wanted to feel that high when the next unexpected event popped up. I'm not sorry I read the series and I do think with the right editor this series could be so much more.
