Review: I’m going to be completely honest here, I read this book because of the cover. I love it and if it wasn’t for the awesome cover, I probably wouldn’t have read it. I’m not the biggest fae fan and I only like steampunk, I don’t love it. So I was surprised that I actually enjoyed Innocent Darkness.
Obviously, since I only like it, I thought it had its problems. There was even a point when I was reminded of Twilight. I rarely compare things to Twilight but V was acting like Edward. He just pissed me off. I also didn’t like the love triangle. Usually they don’t bother me but it did this time. I can’t put my finger on why.
Other than that, the book was very enjoyable, and I’m glad I read it. I will probably read the next book, Charmed Vengeance, at some point.
