Where to start? I really struggled to read this story - but I did eventually finish it. So I could not have hated it. Problem is that I did not like it near as much as I wanted to. I had always thought that saying that you really wanted to like a book but just couldn't was just a platitude. Now I know better. For me - this was that book! The author has potential and imagination to be sure - but this whole thing seems amatuerishly done. Too many mistakes and typos, frequent usage of the wrong pronoun, formatting issues - you name it!
While I did like the basic premise of this story, I thought some of the names for characters in this fantasy world setting were ridiculous ("Bianca" for example). There was an unhealthy mix of modern "our world" language and speech combined with rigid and archaic language and speech coming out of the mouths of the same characters. I didn't find the characters believable for the most part. And a big battle in Hell at the end of the story where the "good guys" suffer no casualties because they can simply bring all their slain back to life at the end? Seriously - what was even the point then? I guess the author does not believe in consequences and just wanted to give us some BS fairy tale ending.
All of the above being said - I most likely will continue with this series as all the ebooks in the series are free thus far and I do still have just a tad of interest in this author's work. I may need a break to read something else before i do that, though. I struggled with it enough that it must have taken me 2 or 3 weeks to finish reading this book - and it is not even a very long book! It's on the shorter side for a novel.
