REVIEW: Bedeviled by Sable GraceSunday, April 15, 2012 1:00
I think that this is one series that I am going to be giving up on. I dislike Kyana even more, and now Ryker looks like an idiot for loving her. The story bored me and I just wanted it to be over.
Kyana hasn’t changed a bit. She is still uncaring, stubborn, and selfish. She is unwilling to give anything more than her body to Ryker, right up until the end, and still then it’s more of a “we’ll see what happens.” He tells her he loves her and he wants more, and she uses sex to distract him. I’m honestly disgusted with him for letting her get away with it. Ryker is a good guy, and he could be a great hero, except his major flaw is loving Kyana. There isn’t a single thing I like about her, which is a problem since she is a main character.
The plot involving Haven being possessed by Cronus could work, if it’s done better and not dragged out. The whole book is Haven and Kyana fight, Kyana loses and Haven gets away or Haven tricks her, takes what she wants, and then gets away. It feels like we are running in a big circle. By the last third of the book, I was tired of it. I feel no emotion at Haven’s ordeal, and I don’t feel any from Kyana either. She tells us she has to save Haven, because they are like sisters, but we aren’t shown how much she cares. Kyana doesn’t appear to care about anything, so I didn’t care about anything.
I have hoped this series would turn into something really good, and I’m sad that I was wrong. It’s just not for me, and there are too many great books out there for me to struggle through the bad.
She has done the unthinkable—turned her best friend into a dark breed: part Vampyre, Lychen and Witch . . .
Kyana thought only to save her friend’s life when she fed Haven her blood; instead, she created a monster. Now the woman she thought of as a sister is under the spell of an ancient, vengeful god, determined to set him free and wreak havoc on the mortal world . . . and only Kyana can stop her.
But time is running out. In just seven days, Kyana’s Vampyre and Lychen abilities will be gone and she’ll be completely transformed into the Goddess of the Hunt—and her blood ties to Haven will be severed. By her side is Ryker—ally, demigod, lover— who will sacrifice everything to keep Kyana safe . . . even the attraction that burns between them. Together they have one chance to save Haven from herself . . . to save humanity from hell on earth.
