Tania's heart belongs to Orlando. Nothing can rip them apart. Until the seduction begins in a flurry of glamour and magic, music and parties all orchestrated by the mysterious and mesmerising Zoran, an iconic rock star who has retired to a remote ranch in the nearby mountains. And there Tania meets the dark side. Can she resist temptation?
In my opinion this is certainly not as good as her other series, the beautiful dead series, as it seemed to be a lot more indepth but not in a im going to captivate you and keep you within the grasp of my pages sort of way. It was more of a, I have nothing to do so Im going to ramble on a little to try and draw the story out as much as possible and possibly add some character and definition to the book. I just felt like there was a whole bunch of nothing within the novel in that there were rthings added within it that just didnt need to be there. In some places it actually felt like we were just going round and round in circles. The same thing with the same characters were happening over and over again which actually left me wanting to shout at the book and at the author as if she could hear me and tell her to stop repeating herself because it just wasnt needed. I do think that perhaps her over series built up this whole aspect of image for eden maguire, in that you knew she had talent and that she was the sort of author that wrote with care when it came to her books. But after reading this one your kind of left wondering what the point of the whole thing even was.
It was obvious from the moment of the party, or well even before that, that something big dark and bad was about to go down. A celebrity, even if they are a retired one, is not going to throw a big huge party just because they feel like doing so. They are actually more likely to throw a come back concert in the hopes of raising some more money or even to just get back in the spotlight of everything again. so yeah there was a very unbelieavble factor within those pages that seemed to make you figure out the plot right from te beginning. The annoying thing for me was that all these ideas were thrown about but no conclusion was actually come of them, such as why oliver died, or why they lost there memories of what actually occured, or even why the dark ones felt the need to fall in love or make others fall in love with them? It was just like a book where nothing but ideas were thrown about and that was all.
It was a disappointing novel therefore and I am struggling to find the overall advantages to it, or well the positives in this case. I do think that perhaps the series could get better as it goes on but its going to take a mind of stubborness to carry on reading the remainder of the series. good job then that thats me all ove really. I like eden maguire and so I am a little disppaointed by the series. I also know that others will have liked it but we are all entitled to our own views and opinion on this one so I hope mine are respected. I do think that the characters have a lot of room for growth and development and so I therefore hope that by the end of the series we begin to understand and relate to them more.
Therefore because of everything mentioned within this review I am going to award it a one star rating. its very rare that Ill do such a thing but I am finding it hard to even say that I liked the novel when all I can think is what pile of poop did I actually just sit and read and why did I waste my time on it? I will continued to read the series and I hope to good that I will begin to enjoy it more as it goes on but for me, this book was a big no no and does not raise the hopes or spirits of a good series to come.
