Miss goody-shoes Zoey Redbird , can do no wrong and is hailed as the chosen one, next only to a Goddess. As Aphrodite puts , Zoey and her ‘Herd of Nerds’ must save the day by stopping nefarious Neferet.
It is sickening to read about Neferet’s ‘supplicants’ and her slithering babies of Darkness; the word ‘worship’ has been repeated so many times that it almost lost all meaning in my head. Neferet is amateurish when it comes to being a Goddess. I didn’t enjoy it.
I find that by just using exorbitant words, you can’t make the characters funny. P.C.Cast should know that by now, for instance
“Kalona and humans, especially little humans, equals apocalyptic train wreck…”
is. Not. Funny.
Zoey Redbird must save the world. Again. ALL responsibility is hers and we have endless pages of her remorse in being the chosen one. The side-kicks, although they are kickass awesome, are only given less-than-what’s-their-due of attention.
I expected more of Light vs Darkness, each personified as Magnificent Bulls[refer picture above] This was an intriguing new concept that was introduced in the previous books. But I was let down. Even the usual teenage romance was missing the ‘zing’, if you know what I mean.
I would very much like to read spin-off stories. The four novellas were way better than the 12 long reads. The novellas had better depth of characterization in them.
