“Names have power. Titles are a show of power.”
This is a generous 2 stars (probably closer to 1.5 stars) because I didn’t really enjoy anything with this story. After reading the first book, I thought I had a clue where the story was going but if possible there was even less world building, which I didn’t know was possible with the new setting and schemes Emilia get up to. But I was so utterly and deathly bored through this entire story and found many of the romance scenes lacking and jarring (especially one scene – and I guarantee if you’ve read the book you know what I’m taking about).
I love the idea of the princes of hell representing different sins, and their ruling through vices and excess. But the execution just didn’t work. The focus on the romance was so strong that everything else was unimportant. I was hoping this book would get me back into a fantasy mood, don’t think I’ll continue with the series.
