Book: Her Dark Curiosity

After finishing The Madman's Daughter I could not wait to get my hands on this book.  Also with such a beautiful cover this book was kinda hard to say no to.
When I first started reading the book I was totally in love with how with it. I liked where the story picked up and what had happened. And as the murders started I got even more into it. 
Sadly as the story started to reach the turning point ( somewhere around the point when Juliet went to Lucy's party) the book lost me. 
Everything I had loved about the first book was gone.  I found that this book was pretty much just Juliet torn between two guys. yes it was like that a little in The Madman's Daughter, but that book had so much else going on and going for it. 
However I kept reading hoping that it would get better. It sadly did not.  What really has me let down about all of this is I know that the author has the power to do something wonderful. She can weave such great stories. Set up great characters, plant little clues and twist and turn it all about until you have a can't miss book. 
This book did none of that.  I found that were in the first book that I liked  Juliet, while in this book she rather got on my nerves at times. 
The two characters I liked most in this book was of course Elizabeth and Lucy. I felt that they made the most sense and did their part to balance the story while adding a little life to it all. 
 Over all the book was good but it was still a let down something I am still trying to get over. 
I'm praying as hard as I can that the next book will be more like The Madman's Daughter and therefore can not wait to get my hands on it.

  1. gosh, this cover is gorgeous! i need to read the first one too. Sorry this one didn't quite live up to the first.

  2. Yeah this cover is amaze. For me it was the opposite, I felt it was slow in the start and hard to get into, could be because it was over a year ago I read the last book. Then things picked up and by the end I just can't wait to read the final book!
