    A Darker Shade of Meh

    This was an interesting read. It's not the kind of story that drags you in from the beginning. Instead, it slowly wraps around you and quietly compels you to stay with it until the end. While there was tension at various points, it never seemed to make me feel it as much as the author may have intended. The main male protagonist is a blood-magician by the name of Kel who's job is to be an interdimensional postman. He was decently written and had a touch of the mysterious about him, but I didn't find him to be a very strong or interesting character overall. In fact out of all the named characters we encounter over the course of this book, I found him to be one of the most boring. The most intriguing character, on the other hand, is an ordinary (non-magical) street rat by the name of Delilah Bard or simply Lila. Lila has lived quite the hard life and has had to fight and scrape at every single turn in order to survive and carve a spot for herself in the harsh world that she calls home. At virtually every step of the way she's surrounded by stronger, more powerful, more ruthless individuals and yet somehow she always makes it through. I believe this to be because Lila has one simple focus - to survive. I don't know if I'll read more of this series or leave it alone, but if I do it will be to find out what trouble finds Lila and not necessarily caring about the ongoing pursuits of Kel.

    Multiple London's, compelling story.

    Kell goes between words using his blood magic and meets a pirate who will do anything to get herself a ship and a better life. I loved this story and are really looking forward to where it goes next and the fallout.

    Wow, what a story

    What an amazing book for her first adult writing. Action, magic, suspense and love in a story hard to put down

    Excellent fantasy!

    If you're a fan of the Abhorsen trilogy byGarth Nix, you're certain to enjoy this novel as well. A rich world, lush descriptions, and enaging characters. Looking forward to reading the next installment!
