Urban fantasy in its finest (On-Going Review)
WARNING: This review could be considered mildly spoiler-y.
This story hooked me from the very first chapter. All the mystery around the nightlife in the city and the brief mentions of vampires on the third paragraph (I love those creatures, an obsession I have never been able to get rid of) peaked my interest irremediably and immediately. A strong, fascinating start.
The characters are all very likeable and I specially liked the main character, Margo, though she broke my poor heart! (I love Edgar Allan Poe. I love him with a burning passion). Lyon proved to be equally interesting and it was pleasing to find all the characters to be complex and multi-dimensional. Nothing's better in a story than the complexity of us humans represented among the story. The way the characters interacted was easy-going and light, specially the flirtation and the good-hearted jokes, which is something I always look for when reading YA novels.
And then we get to the fantasy aspect of this story. Urban fantasy will always be irrevocably fascinating to me and this story was no exception. The combination of the city, the youth of the characters, the appeal of the night and the dangers of it mixed with grace and I just cannot wait for more chapters.
The narrative and the way the story progresses are not perfect but I think perfection is overrated. Despite the flaws, the story hooks and demands attention. Easy, sexy; it's not difficult are all to get involved in this world the author presents to us. The existent flaws are something that can be perfectly fixed with editing and the plot is so interesting that light mistakes are easily forgiven.
A must read for fantasy lovers. A story I'll definitely be keeping my eyes on.
Very interesting read
This story presents us a classical plot in a different, fresh way : the maiden princess and the fearsome dragon that feasts on human flesh but with an outcome that to me is unconventional and that I think it was well-achieved. The story progresses smoothly to end up wrapped up nicely with characters well-presented in such a short length. The writing style is easy to follow and pleasing through the reading; though I found it rather ordinary and common. Either way, it's nicely written and well-developed.Read the story now
