Synopsis via Goodreads:
Everything seemed to be going right for Cora. She had a wonderful fiance, a great best friend and a fulfilling life. One day, a tragic event caused that life to crumble around her. She turned to her best friend in her time of need. They embarked on a search for answers, delving deeper into a web of magic and destruction. The closer they got to the truth, the more questions they had. To Cora, magic was the stuff of fairy tales. Immersed into a very different kind of world, the real storm was just beginning to take hold.
I went into this novel with high expectations (not good). I just thought the description sounded good. The story was interesting and new but there were moments where it was too cheesy. The pace was very fast, something I like, but it was so fast that it seemed rushed. And in return, some of the things said seemed off in several moments. I felt like I didn't get a chance to connect with the characters, especially Cora.
When everything started happening I got lost in the midst. But before that, I couldn't understand why Cora was acting in such a way when she's on the verge of getting married. Like, her behavior just seemed like that of a 18 year old who was dating a grown man. But that aside, I did feel displeased about what happened to him, its her and Nessa's reaction to the event that I found out of place.
I am a biology nerd who decided it was more fun writing than dissecting. I have written two novels and my third will be out this summer. I live on coffee and read like a robot. My husband and two italian greyhounds usually have to tear me away from the computer...imagine that. :)
