After Mari’s attempt to help Trystan goes horribly wrong they are both forced to deal with the consequences.
3.5 stars — Well that synopsis is horribly short. After such a major cliffhanger, I didn’t realize that I never went on to find out what happened next (probably b/c this book wasn’t out yet), so this was my first read through! I find that while I’m still really interested in Mari and Trystan, I’m not sure if this style of serial novella series is for me. It feels like not enough happens in each book, and I don’t know if it’s just me, but these books definitely feel shorter than the 200 pages they claim to be. It takes me less than 2 hours to read them. So it doesn’t feel really satisfying.
I will say that I was kind of disappointed in the predictability of the story — totally saw what was going to happen with Brie. Totally called Trystan briefly trying to push Mari away. Sometimes I don’t mind a predictable storyline, but I might not be in the right frame of mind for it right now, kwim? But I’m invested at this point, so I will finish this, I just doubt I will bother getting involved in any more of these kinds of series by this author. It’s just not to my *personal* taste.
