I had read "The Sweetest Dark" and was glad to see where the story went in this book. I will be glad to finish the series just to see how it all wraps up.
Armand is lovely and I hated all the back and forth, but am glad for the way the book ended.
This book was never... explicit and yet sometimes it felt that way. I feel so frustrated by this. It is set in a time period where even a kiss would be scandalous and exciting. Why add so much sexual tension and overtones?
The story was good. There was danger and intrigue in the last half of the book and a whole lot of (sometimes dull) social intrigue in the beginning.
I don't feel like I wasted my time. I enjoyed the book and I don't feel dirty having read it, but there were definitely parts that made me uncomfortable and I was always on edge as to whether or not I'd have to skip a few pages. I never did, thankfully, but there was a lot of "toeing the line" going on.
