liked the book a lot! Do have some gripes though... one major gripe, one middlin gripe and one weasley little gripe.
First, though, I'd say this author really has a talent & I got very involved in the world as presented. Especially the idea that an empath would rather avoid people than be lovey-dovey & understanding.
Major gripe -- the story just stops! Right in the middle of everything it just STOPS! This is not nice. I've read many, many serials, trilogies, etc. and this is just not the same thing. I was left feeling kind of ripped off emotionally. Why not clearly label a work as a
cliff-hanger" if that's what it is?
Second, middlin' gripe: All of a sudden the heroine jumps into the back of the truck belonging to this crazy, dangerous, torturing bad-guy -- even though all the previous story was built on how scared (with good reason) she was of him. Duh? very psychologically unlikely!
Tiney little gripe... in one passage the heroine realizes something and this is portrayed as having "donned" on her. Mispelling is rampant on the internet & I do a lot myself when it just seems too much trouble to correct it... This, though looks like a major flaw in understanding. the term is "dawned" -- as in the morning sun rising to illuminate something that was previously dark & hard to see.
I am left wondering wth is don, and why is he interested in "donning" on people.
I really did like the story, but I don't think I will read another by this author. I very much disliked the way it simply quit... no closure, no nothing...
