This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Jeg er sytten år og er heks og mit navn erLuna.
Magien bor i mig og min slægt, en kræft skænket os af Månen. Men med magien følger en forbandelse: efter kærlighed kommer død.
Jeg vi lille se en mand miste livet, og den tanke hjælper mig med at bevare kontrollen, at holde mit ispanser på plads.
Eller det gjorde den i det mindste.
Jeg er ikke så forskellig fra andre månekvinder. En mand vil altid forelske sig i os. Men jeg kan ikke længere stå imod .
Right, so the first 200 pages is nothing but information about the main character, which I have a hard time dealing with. I don’t like her at all. She’s boring and the book is boring. I was just plain bored. We get to know a few characters and none of them is interesting. Its 400 pages of pure boredom.
The writing seems rushed and not well thought off. It’s childish and without excitement or emotion. I’ve been hunting this book down for some time, without finding it in stores etcetera. Now I know why; it’s plain and boring.
Now enough of the negative thoughts, onwards to the positive. This book is infuriating because it has such potential but the execution is just poor. The cover is pretty; that and the intro text was what invited me in and like so many other times I’m rather disappointed. I feel like the books that Tellerup – the publishing firm – publish from the Danish authors has seriously lowered the standards overall. When I first started reading, I read nothing but translated Tellerup books and I enjoyed them so much. Lately many Danish authors has started getting their books published though here, and I’m not a fan.
Let me mention the pages, it barely has any text on there to start with, but after a finished chapter there’s a blank page with nothing on it. I feel like I wasted money on buying a book that has 52 black pages and 31 pages with less than 20 words on them.
I got to hand it to the book it was easy to read! So if you’re a beginner looking for something easy to read this is a given. It doesn’t require a lot of concentration to read this and if you easily tire, the chapters aren’t that long.
