I just gotta warn you, I'm gonna sound super pissed off in this review. But I didn't dislike this book! I was just extremely disappointed, and was so caught off guard by it that it made me annoyed.
First of all, the romance between Walt and Sadie. (And Carter and Zia, but I'll discuss that in a minute). What's with the romance in this book? It's so irritating because it distracts from the plot AND its instalove. No. Just no. And then there's a semi-love triangle between Anubis and Sadie and Walt. NO. Fuck off, love triangle. As much as I hate it, I'll take instalove over that any day.
So, let's talk about Ra.(show spoiler)
thought the first book was pretty funny. But this one kinda fell flat. There's a few good comedic moments here and there but most times I was unimpressed.
That's a lot of negative, and I'm sorry for being a debbie-downer. So, here's what I did like: . There's a lot of action so it's never boring, and that's good. And as I said above, there's a few good comedic moments here. And I don't know why, but I like Set. Sadie and Carter think he's a villain, but I saw him as merely mischievous.
Tl;dr version- Although I'm extremely disappointed by this, I didn't completely hate it. I will still read the sequel. Let's hope it redeems the series.
