I’ll be completely honest I didn’t know how to rate this one in the beginning. There were things that didn’t really sit well with me.
So, I love dark romance in all it’s form. I don’t agree with what goes one but it’s fantasy right? Anyways. I am going to say that this one didn’t sit well because of the connection. I didn’t feel it between the two of these characters.
Kat a librarian, tired of her life. She feels broken and wrong and needed something to change. Her best friend dared her. She couldn’t back down, it started with a kiss and ended in obsession. She met the man on the elevator and took his mouth. She felt a connection one he didn’t feel back. She was rejected in the end but couldn’t stop thinking abut that kiss.
Gav, he was wrong. He needed their pain, their blood to keep himself straight. He was kissed and forgotten the girl on the elevator. Gav was more interested in death, their death. The bad men in the world. He was supposed to be a healer, to know what it was like to put people together but all he did was take them apart. Until the girl came to give him back a piece of paper that meant nothing.
“A monster for a monster. Something to feed the shadow. The fear of death was a powerful emotion. It dropped away everything else and cleansed people of their sins. Nobody, not even the cruelest man, can hold onto their cruelty in the face of death. It takes away their power, makes them humble. It was a blessing to them, I thought, that they died in such purity.”
It was dark, there just wasn’t a real connection between the two people. I enjoyed it; I rounded my 3.5 to a four because there were parts that were believable others not so much but again fantasy.
