Book Review: Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I listened to this on audiobook while packing. I desperately wanted to just love these stories, but apparently I’m going down fighting. The concept is so interesting. I love all the caster and incubus mythology and history. The setting is still fun.

However, for some reason, I can’t seem to connect with these stories. They feel incredibly long to me, and I love huge books. I just can’t seem to get through these gracefully. I’m always forcing it, and I hate that. I want the books to suck me in, so that I have to read them and can’t stand to put them down. I can’t figure out why exactly they don’t, as I still confess to being fascinated by the concept.

I’m not sure if I’ll go on to the next one, because there are so many other stories I desperately want to read. I do have all 4 purchased on my Kindle (there was a sale), so I kind of feel like I should read them. Then again, they’ll always be there if I want to go back to them.

On a separate note, some of my Middle School kids swear by these novels. They keep prodding me along, as I drag my feet. I wish I could get the same feels they are getting from reading these novels, but it isn’t happening for me. Bummer.
