I'm not gonna lie- I wanted this book because of the amazing cover. The 52nd by Dela caught my eye on Instagram and I thought to myself: "That book would look great on my shelf!" So as soon as my Book Buy funds became available, I added it to my collection. Am I happy I did...?
There are many times I can begin a book and know immediately if I am going to like it or not. It's happened many times. When I know I'm going to love it, I fly through the book in a few days. When I know it's gonna suck... I find myself in mortal pain and agony and I flip from page to page- praying for a speedy demise.
As soon as I got to the second chapter, I knew this book was not going to work for me. I immediately thought of Twilight- EVERYONE is amazingly perfect and like, total babes! Their hair and eyes are flawless and- I don't know if it happened or not, but I don't think Mayans and Aztecs of the past had blue eyes. I'm just saying- I'm no scientist so don't quote me on this! Even the author said it was rare!
Okay, so I won't go into SPOILERS with this book; I refuse to give the story away. But when you have perfect characters- immortals for that matter, who can glamour and move über-fast with ultra clear hearing (the only thing they didn't do was sparkle in sunlight), I began to wonder who wrote this book for real! I was so upset by the characters, I'm not even going to begin talking about the on and off, just to be back on again relationship between Zara and Lucas. It was annoying, to say the least.
It wasn't a bad book, but the story just didn't win me over. Sometimes YA novels regurgitate storylines, living me overly unimpressed. This time, my judgment of the cover played me on the book. On to the next read! 📚
