WAY too much man hate in the second half. I seriously get a little bit of it, but the extent of it in this book becomes off putting. We get it. You hate men. Stop forcing it down our damn throats.

The first half was good enough to keep my interest, with a few pretty good spooky parts I didn't expect. Then the man hate started and the book just goes downhill, not necessarily because of that, but it didn't help. For some reason, the characters just end up not really doing what makes sense (if someone kills your loved one and then fully admits they were of sound mind and not being controlled by a demon like you thought, would you not just forgive them but also fall in love with them? Yeah, me neither...). Even a lot of the dialogue got stupid. Good premise, just not well executed, at least not enough to be anything other than a mediocre book. I struggled to finish this one.

I love the author's own comment on Goodreads: "This is a book about girls--girls loving girls, girls kissing girls, girls being friends with girls, girls helping girls. Girls who hunger, girls who rage. Girls who fight, girls who make mistakes, girls who dream and pine. It's also about magic and monsters, family secrets and soul-friends, moths and wild horses and the churning wild sea, and trampling the patriarchy." SIGN ME UP.
