Review by: ChookenNoodleSoup on Oct. 25, 2012 :
I just couldn't get into it. I enjoyed the prequel that had me desperately wanting to read the full book, but once I began Dark Splendor I found the writing just seemed to stagnate. I thought the concept was great but I just couldn't lose myself in the way it was written. I felt no emotion towards any of the characters and I found myself skimming over quite a lot of the overly long descriptions of the clothes, castle, etc. Like I said, I really did like the concept though.

Absolutely loved this book. After reading Dark Prelude I immediately bought Dark Splendor because I was hooked. I liked how it keeps you guessing and all the different twists which made the book entertaining and captivating. The downside for me was the abrupt ending and i was expecting the story to finish with a bigger bang. Otherwise great read.

The prequel short leading into this was a perfect hook. It got me to read the preview and then purchase the full novel all on it's own.

The Novel is a nice little romance. A light easy read with enjoyable characters and an interesting plot. The ending felt a little flat to me, after all the build up I was expecting a little more twist.

Over all, worth a few dollars and a few hours of your time.
