Series: Master of Crows #1
Yet another book that does not live up to the hype. I’ve heard people rave about Grace Draven’s books. This is the second one I’ve read, and they’re underwhelming. Master of Crows wasn’t bad but wasn’t engaging either. At about a third of the way in I didn’t really want to read it anymore because I was insanely bored.
Martise was sent to spy on Silhara. You know the drill: they both think poorly of each other and can’t stand each other. After spending time with each other their feelings changed.
It was very predictable and followed the standard PNR formulas. The characters were so drab. I didn’t care about them at all. They lacked originality too. The supposedly plain looking woman with weak powers was beautiful and extremely powerful. The dangerous bad boy was just misunderstood. In romances, some tension and passion is good, but this didn’t have any. I would not recommend this if you want to read something original or different.
