Cuốn sách này chắc chắn là một cổ điển. Nhưng tôi không bao giờ có thể vượt qua văn xuôi cổ xưa của Muir. Những gì anh ấy mô tả là khá đẹp, nhưng thật dài dòng đối với tôi tại lần đầu tiên tôi đọc nó mà tôi chưa bao giờ quay lại để đọc qua cuốn sách. Tôi viết nó lên để đọc cuốn sách không đúng lúc trong đời. Tôi còn quá trẻ với những ý tưởng đặc biệt về tính ưu việt của tính cộng hưởng phụ của ngôn ngữ hiện đại. (Rõ ràng là tôi không sống theo tiêu chuẩn của riêng mình.) Một ngày nào đó tôi sẽ trở lại với điều này và tận hưởng nó. Mặt khác, tôi đã tìm thấy nó là một nguồn trích dẫn mô tả tuyệt vời về phong cảnh núi non.
Rất mắc cười!!!
I liked the premise of this story, and the adventure that Peter has in London. There is a character introduced at the beginning of the story who seems to be important but becomes less and less important as the story goes along. That kind of bugged me, but other than that I enjoyed this sequel. I loved the idea of a shadow thief. Very clever!
Mac has now learned a bit more about the world that took her sister from her and is now threatening the rest of humanity. As overwhelming as it might seem, Mac is one of a small conglomeration of people (if you can call them people) who can fight the evil Fae from opening up this world to their kind and obliterating all of mankind and anything that is good in the process. Now Mac realizes that this isn't just about the sister she lost, but is much, much bigger. Once again, book two is not a stand alone type of a novel. Book one was very much a set up to learning the rules and procedures of this magical world, and we have continued to learn so much more in book two. As a Sidhe Seer, Mac can sense the evil Sinsar Dubh book, which is one of the reasons that manly man Jericho Barrons has kept a close rein on Mac. Together they have sought out ancient relics that contain magic, and according to Barrons, will help them get closer to the magic book. Why do we not believe him though? Barrons is all that a complicated mystery man should be; he's handsome, rugged, and even a bit sadistic. You know that he cares enough about Mac to keep protecting her and giving her information about some of the magical world, but not enough to really lay it all on the line. We aren't even sure what he even is at this point! Why can't the shades touch him? What's the deal with that? Is he just playing her and going to end up being the bad guy, or is he some "wounded" soul and really a good guy at heart? We don't know. By the end of this second installment, I now feel completely invested in what will happen to Mac. She has pushed the boundaries of her powers and learned how to protect herself, without Barrons help. Mac is gutsy and vulnerable, which make her a great heroine for this series. So far, I've really gotten into the series and now feel much more eager to finish the series. Once you get the gist of this magical world, the action and mystery really suck you in! Honestly, it's not like any other paranormal series I've ever read.
