Started this one because I had heard good things, loved the titles of the first and third, etc.
And ... no. Not at all. They are shallow books full of frankly rather horrid characters with little to no morality. Bray can turn a phrase, and nicely too, but these books, with their vague plots and stilted character development, a blind eye toward some very bad things done by characters (with no consequences or repercussions), and fixation on the paranormal and feminist movement, but with no great clarity on either subject, so you feel constantly led in two directions but with no real idea of why, just made me want to stop reading. I'll not be reading the sequels. At all. And I shall not be recommending it either.
That said, I do like quite a number of her individual quotes from her books, these included.
