Review - Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney

em quinta-feira, 20 de julho de 2017 |
Hey guys! How are you?? 
I'm planning a lot of fun activities, I just hope I get the time to do them!
Do I sound lame? I feel like I sound lame. I'm 19 and it's my holidays so what do I have to do but read and write? 

I'm a very important person guys! I absolutely need to stare at my computer screen for hours and hours just to get 100 words down on my novel.
That's my life.
But hey, you're here to talk about books so let's get down to business ~ pun intended.


The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.
Some things are better left in the shadows.

I had so high expectations for this book!!!!! ~ I’d like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book.

My head is kind of a tangle of thoughts because on one hand, I really like the concept of the book, on the other hand, it was so short!!

This book is 184 pages long. It should be 300! Because the story got so tiny that the characters didn’t evolve!!!

Okay, angriness aside. This could really use more words and more developing to make the story believable. I don’t want to say that it looks more like a draft then the original... It ends ups being more like a fanfiction (I mean this with the kindest regard to fanfiction writers, I, myself, started by writing fanfiction) than a book. You’ve all read fanfiction, don’t lie! And you know how they usually focus on the dialogue and jumping around to the most important moments? That’s this book in a nutshell.


I don’t think I’ve ever been so disappointed about not liking this book. I honestly feel like smacking my brain until I like it.
The story itself is so good and the execution falls so short…
I really liked the characters but I don’t like how they were developed – they weren’t you were just told they were.

>>> authors: remember, show don’t tell.

That’s it. I’m hoping that will be able to see the characters grow in the next book and maybe understand a bit more what happened in this one (I’m seriously so confused guys).
Unfortunately, this time, it was not a good book.

Rating: 2/5
