Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed the storyline in this one, but I just felt like, after reading so many of Richelle Mead's VA and Bloodlines books, that this series is less polished in its execution.
The whole ghost/murder mystery background story felt unnecessary, a lot of things felt repetitive (oh, look, I am spending more time in the Otherworld now... over and over and over)...
And the back and forth between Dorian and Kiyo is giving me whiplash. He's bad, I want that one. No, wait, that one is bad, I want this one. Oh, no, I was right before, I want the first one, the second one is bad....
And, sorry, Eugenie, sweetie, your justifications for your actions don't fly with me.
Overall, I still enjoyed the book and am enjoying the series. I'm just disappointed to see that not all her work is as awesome as prior reads.
