I loved every second of reading this book.
It felt like Roux was trying to throw every possible crazy thing at you in order to make the readers scared when it just made the story confusing.
Are we crazy? Or is this stuff really happening? I felt myself losing it towards the end. That's when you know you have a good horror ghost story.
I read this book and I go on an adventure. I feel every heartbeat and every swing of Percy's sword.
It is very obvious that this world is heavily inspired by Lord of the Rings. It has the humans, elves, dwarves, and orcs.
She's such a special snowflake that both of these worlds want to recruit her and would do anything to get her. And of course, they both send super, super HAWT guys after her because women obviously only make decisions according to their lady boners.
TAKE NOTE AUTHORS! THIS IS HOW YOU WRITE A CHARACTER!
While you see her putting up with all of this bullying, you also see her break down and by the end of the book, she almost kills herself. But she stops because she doesn't want to take the easy way out.
Where are the morals? Where is the self-esteem? You want me to care about these characters? Really Sara Shepard? Because you are making it really hard.
*Sigh* I swear, I've read some Mary Sue's before, but this character may be the Mary Sue-est Mary Sue to ever Mary Sue.
