This book fell into a trap. The trap of predictability! I thought a non YA book would save me. I thought wrong. Foiled.
Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it. What can I say, I've grown attached to some of the characters. But everytime some earth shattering event was about to take place, I knew what it was and was left feeling disappointed that I could so easily tell. Plus I'm starting to get confused as to why so many men want to throw themselves at Eugenie (outside of the prophecy I mean). Kiyo and Dorian are both suckers. Man up!
I don't want to spoil anything, but lets be honest. As tawdry as this book gets at times, some of these "shocking" events shouldn't be that shocking.
Oh well, onward toward the next book!
