I’ve wanted to read this book for a while. As if the description wouldn’t do enough to draw me in, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and I’m a sucker for a pretty book.
I really liked this book. Yovanoff took a story which many people know and made it unique and interesting. She takes a look at good and evil, love, and courage. I loved how the “bad” guys weren’t always bad and the “good” guys weren’t always good. You were rooting for the demon and dreading the angel. It was intriguing to read a book set up like that.
Daphne as a character is left a little clouded and I had to work to put together a picture of her in my head. I liked not being told exactly what she looked like, but instead, given some traits and piecing together a person from my own mind. It connected me to the story in a way that’s rarer for me to find and I loved it.
Truman was yet another wonderful character. He redeems himself from start to end and it’s a testament to Yovanoff’s writing that she was able to make him such a beloved man out of the pieces she started with.
This is a dark book that left me feeling hopeful and happy. The ending felt a little off, but not enough to bother me. I’ll be telling all my friends to pick this book up and give it a read.
