The Sweet and Sour (Mixed Review)
This series has a lot of potential. The plot itself and characters are truly unique and well thought out. Once the story gets going its a page turner and leaves the reader wanting more.
However for the story to really hit its stride it takes over half of the book. The first half of the story is at time confusing and gets a bit convoluted in my opinion. As a reader I was waiting for the ball to drop and at times thought okay yes this is it only for the story to get more tangled and slowed down.
Again I really enjoyed the second half of the book as it drew me in and left me craving more. I think I will really enjoy the second book seeing that the first half of the book seems to be setting up the world.
I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a paranormal read with a good cliff hanger ending
