The female lead (Summer) is so annoying to me as a character it’s honestly hard for me to want to finish this book. She is overly dramatic thinking she can’t fall in love because she’s too ~intensely and unpredictably powerful~, and she’s supposedly extremely close to her sisters but keeps secrets from them for dumb ridiculous reasons, doesn’t listen to other people or common sense and honestly isn’t adventurous or exciting at all.
I loved the first book and I’m shocked at how this one is turning out. She lives her entire life not understanding her powers and when Dilas comes in and explains what she is and what it means she doesn’t believe him, doesn’t check into it, doesn’t consider his words or reconsider her own diagnosis (“my powers are so weird I mean literally everyone around me has different magical powers and can do insane shit but hmmm I’m probably just going crazy and I should prob kill my self”). Fuck off Summer, that’s all I have to say.
Also the writing is so long winded I had to speed up the narration just so I can finish this before I die. All this being said, I will probably read the next installment just because the other two sisters seem to have much more life and intelligence than Summer. Please let that be the case at least.
As always, Wilson delivered another excellent story with wonderful world building, an exciting plot line, and sizzling romance. This is perhaps my favorite book of hers yet. The heroine struggles with the very contemporary theme of maintaining an outward facade of the calm, smiling female, and later must overcome a great trauma. It made for a protagonist with more depth than the average swooning, naive maiden in the romance drama. The performance was also excellent. A good listen for Sarah J Maas fans. Looking forward to the next installment!
