What I thoughtIt's not often that I leave a book unfinished. But since I made it past the halfway mark, I thought I'd share my thoughts on what made this one of the very few books that goes unfinished. First, this was an audiobook. I sampled it and thought I'd take a chance. I liked the reader, which was one of the reasons I stuck it out as long as I did. The performance of the audiobook didn't play into what made me not finish.
I'm not going to lie, the beginning was really interesting and grabbed my attention. But slowly, towards the middle, I started to lose interest. It started to resemble another book, Twilight, and all I could think about was the similarities between the two. I could make a list, but I feel others have separated bits and pieces for comparison much better than I could have done. But what got me was it was almost parallel to Twilight. Change the scenery, change the names, change the species and you have this book.
I didn't care for the plot of this book. The instance lust/mate thing was really off for me. I don't care for the love at first sight (or bite). I'm not sure if it was because it came with that feeling I've read it before (so many similarities), or if I was generally uninterested in the plot. But when it came down to it, I was doing things to put off listening to more and eventually I just gave up finishing it. While I still think the cover is really interesting, I don't recommend looking much further than that.
