Rosemary and Rue - Seanan McGuire On one hand, I was immediately pulled in by the premise. On the other hand, there seemed to be no progression. Yes, there was plenty of action, but the storyline fell flat for me. I don't even know how I got to the end, but all of a sudden after a whole lot of things happening that seemed to have no connection, BAM - story's over. The culprit reveal was a doozy, though, I'll give it that. I will say that the series had potential and so I was intrigued to read book 2 - here’s how that went. There were a lot of interesting aspects in this story and in the world the author has built, if she'd just weed out the unecessary. Why do we need to know the name of every kind of fae imaginable when 90% of them don't actually play a part in the story? That's silly and just manages to take away from your storyline. Lot’s of meh.I loved the interaction between Tybalt and Toby and had hope for much more of this in future books.For more of my reviews, visit my blog:
