Okay, so Love's Long Shadow! Very quick read and fantastic writing style. That's about it really. It's very difficult to point out what's good about this book. I would almost definitely read more from Author as she has great potential but something definitely went wrong with this Novella. So I'm going to break it into three points.
- Length – It needed to be longer. I felt as if a 350 book had been crammed into 45 pages and so to fit everything in I had a slew of information to keep up with and I couldn't connect with the characters at all. I would have liked to have seen Sammy and Boon's relationship develop more and I had no picture of where Sammy was living at all. I wanted to know what her bedroom looked like and what she does with her day but instead I got short, quick snippets, as if she doesn't exist unless Boon's scene is up.
- Characters – The length didn't help and the stereotyping made it worse. If you're into insta-love, great but I prefer Anna and the French Kiss style relationships so I suppose I really didn't 'get' their relationship at all. Boon is a stereotypical Daniel (Fallen) and Sammy is a stereotypical Luce (also Fallen), except weaker.
- I've Read That Before – Speaking of Fallen parts of this story seemed rather similar, which didn't impress me at all. I want something new and fresh, insta-love and scenes I've read 20 times before don't equal stars I'm afraid.
