    This book had good potential but in the end it just turned out alright for meLots of unnecessary info dumping lots of self sacrifical behaviour and self righteousness from the main characters lots of eye rolling momentsBut it was an easy read and I did like the plot and the general idea ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    DNF Mon avis en Français My English reviewI had had a good time with another of the author’s novels and I was really curious to discover something else about her I must say that the synopsis and the cover really made me want to discover itCharley is haunted by a tragic event of her youth but today she is a housekeeper and poker addict and she lives a little on the margins of society Yet a magical apocalypse will change all that

    This was my first book by Ms Helen Harper and while I didn't exactly love it I didn't hate it either It simply didn't wow me It had a very interesting beginning a messy very messy middle and an ok ending That messy middle kept losing my interest and I had to force myself to keep reading it instead of the book pulling me in If the book was a

Y Scottish werewolf she might just have landed herself in the middle of a magical apocalypse She might also be the only person who has the ability to bring order to an utterly chaotic new worl I don t know why but the first half of this book reads like Charley is the side character and there s some other book going on where the main characters are fighting to stop the apocalypse and then here s this side character going on about her side characterNPC business while the main characters do their apocalypse stopping main character thing Is there another series that runs parallel to this Like there are some weird crossover episodes when the TV shows Buffy and Angel were running concurrently Because I feel like that would have made sense It got much better in the second half where it felt like Charley was actually finally the main character of her own story I liked Charley for the most part and while I like that she retains her positivity and faith in the essential goodness of man I also think she is incredibly naive for a character who is also at times extremely jaded Still she s bad ass so I ll go with it The world building is fun and the story is fast paced but there s not always a lot of there and the world building and plot don t feel fully fleshed out and cohesive Which is probably why I was left feeling so much like this was the story of a side character and that there much be a main book about the main characters and thus some world building and plot lines that are better fleshed out and that explain out there in the universe somewhere Still Charley isn t sure what the heck is happening most of the time she s just forced to roll with it so I suppose it s just an immersive experience for the reader to also need to roll with it It was still an enjoyable read with some really creative elements I just wish it had been a little cohesive Like this review Check out of my reviews on my blog Elley the Book Otter An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
