To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Usually I want to re read everything by Renée Ahdieh the second I finish it but this series I am struggling with. I do love Celine and Bastian, and adored a lot of the aspects of the first book, but felt like the ending was partially great and predictable, and partially just a huge info dump that didn't make any sense. Before this sequel came out, I assumed that it would explain and contextualize that info dump, but it only did that like 30%... and then it added so much more that again made me feel like the book was getting so far away from its' original storyline and allure.
I do love Bastian and Celine, as well as the other amazing immortal members of the Coeur des Lions, so will def read the rest of the series as it comes out- and do hope that things are a bit more tightened up and pared down in some places!
