I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Note: Possible spoilers ahead!
4 out of 5 Stars
What did I like?
The heroine was a strong, courageous badass. Her background was heartbreaking and she stayed strong. I don't think she could have been the salvation of the Huntsmen without the heartbreak strengthening her first.
What did I not like?
I love the hero but he is too willing to sacrifice his love for the world. "The road to hell is paved with good intentions" seems to be the catchphrase of this book. The heroine is unable to see one life cut short in return for saving others, but she is all ready to try and shoulder a curse meant for many others on her own. The naivete there just astounds me. Especially once she figures out (after the fact) that she is not strong enough to bear it, when it is too late to stop.
Recommendation: This book was a rollercoaster of intrigue and romance, the blending was perfect. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next one (I'm hoping it is Tegan and Ian's...hint, hint).
