Ok so it took me a while to finish this book, not entirely because of my interest level, but somehow my life got really busy and almost out of control this week. But I’m back 🙂 So, Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr, the book currently in question. Well… how do I start? I’ve been asked in the past why is it that I like ALL the books I read… well… I’ll admit that I really struggled with this one. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I enjoyed both Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange. I’ve been trying to figure out why and I think it’s because there was just too much faery! Oh I don’t want to say it but I got tired of reading about Aislinn’s refusal to move on. It was just too much for me. The whining and crying – over the top for me.
After reviewing my thoughts on the first two books, in each of those books, there was a link between the story and today’s teens. But I didn’t really see it this time. So – would I recommend this book? Yup I would… I read it because there was a nagging in me – how does this book relate to the first two? Now there is a fourth in the series, Radiant Shadows, and the reviews I’ve read say this is best so far. But – again – I’m not sure… Fragile Eternity didn’t really have an ending and then I find out that Radiant Shadows is about Ani, Gabriel’s daughter and not Seth and Aislinn – so I’m really not sure how it’ll fit in for me.
