So this is tough- I'm not going to finish reading this book. This has only happened a few times in my life. Once I start a book, no matter how bad, I'm committed. I mean I made myself finish Breaking Dawn (and not beat up the author), I even completed that crap book about the unlikable cow who makes etch-a-sketch art, you know, wossname, I can't remember- it was from Oprah's book club.
I don't want anyone to think that this was a bad book. Nothing Shana Abé writes could ever be bad. It's not possible. She is a splendid story teller. I fell in love with The Last Mermaid and read it over and over. I loved the first two drakon books. BUT THIS BOOK IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE FIRST TWO. OMG, like really could you maybe NOT tell the same story over again only changing the name of the characters? While Abé's writing is almost musical and poetic at times- it's the same song on repeat.
So anyway, read about 2/3 of it and I'm giving it three stars just because I know that if you read it on it's own and not following the first two books, you'd love her too.
