“Your Majesty,” he whispers, breathless. A note of amusement creeps into his voice. “You’ll ruin me.”


My sword, my strength. I take one step after another. The cloud looms closer, closer still. I take another step, and then I am inside it, consumed whole.

I don’t know if it’s just me but lately I’ve been finding ending of series like The Midnight Star a bit predictable, but nevertheless FULL. OF. FEELS. Why are these characters so stubborn?

  1. We do see a lot of the same tropes and twists over and over again in genre fiction. I find a lot of them predictable as well.

    Mine this week is from Stephanie Meyer’s new release: https://wp.me/p3Nz8P-1a4

  2. Yep, some are predictable. But it’s still fun to reach the end of a series:)

  3. This series is on my TBR but I haven’t started reading any of them yet. I don’t mind if a book gets predictable as long as it keeps me interested so hopefully that’s how this is working!

  4. I like the cover and the teaser but I’m not sure I want to read another trilogy. When I turn the last page, I don’t want a cliff hanger, you know? I just read book 2 of what I didn’t realize was a trilogy until I turned that last page. My own fault, not researching before buying, but . . . does sound interesting. Here’s my link for this week’s teaser/intro: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1ra

  5. Even the predictable books can be fun…sometimes they qualify as “comfort reads.”

    Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “FAULTLINES”

  6. I read a lot of romance, so I know the ending is going to be “happily ever after” or “happy for now.” But the fun comes in finding out how the characters get there! I hope you’re enjoying this story.
    My Tuesday post features Letters From Paris.

  7. SO many feels! I remember reading the first quote you shared and shivering a little. I loved this book! A villain/antihero for a protagonist is always so intriguing. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book, Jackie! =)

  8. I agree with Sandra. We are so similar in romance reading. The fun IS how the characters get there! I am starting a new series this year, and despite the beautiful cover and interesting tease, and considering my challenges – I have to pass.
