My Thoughts:
Another few chapters in a bigger book. For another 173 pages (print ed) is a short and sweet read with a whooping cliffhanger ending. At this point we can already see the publishing pattern that this author is going to pursue with this series. Release every 200 pages or less of the book every few months or so at full length book price each time. The story telling quality and the urban fantasy world are really good, but I am not sure I like being squeezed every last drop of money like that. Because that is how it feels. But then again, I guess this kind of publishing technique is making the author a lot of money, I can understand that. I just do not like it. And maybe one of these days I'll get annoyed enough to stop reading. However, I got a weakness for impressive black dragons...

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 4.5
Character development = 4
Story itself = 4
Writing Style = 4.5
Ending = 2
World building = 5
Cover art = 3
Pace = 4.5
Plot = 1.5

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries

About Cali Mann:
I devoured my mother’s Gothic romance collection when I was a teen, so you can say that dark romance and I go way back. Give me a cozy chair, a snuggily feline, and a book any day.

I’ve been dreaming up my own magical worlds since I was small, and I’m so excited to share them with you.
