Shona Husk - Book Review

Trapped for centuries in the bleak Shadowlands, Dai clings to his humanity with a thirst for knowledge. But now he's free of the goblin curse, and some would say he knows too much—he can make nature bend to his will, influence the minds of others, and command magic. Yet love eludes him. Then he meets Amanda, a single mother with a sick daughter whom he feels compelled to protect. But could she possibly place her trust in the kiss of a goblin prince? My review:
Unfortunately, I must say that I did not enjoy this book. It's a romance but had very little romance in it. Much of the book is written from The Hero's perspective. Normally, I love to read a story from the Hero's point of view. But sadly, I found my self very bored with the story and that I was not at all enjoying my "time away."
The story's main focus was on Dai adjusting to his new life and to his new world. This could have been very interesting if it were done right. But, for me it was just very boring and very drawn out. I found myself yawning a LOT and my reading time became very short. Usually, I'm looking for an excuse to stop and read, no matter what I'm doing or where I may be. But with this book, I would literally dread picking up my Kindle. I will not be continuing with this series.

Where to find Shona Husk:

Wow, I'm really surprised. I've read other reviews that said they didn't like it as much as the first book but it really sounds like you couldn't stand it.

I was heartsick to leave this review. I am not a negative person and I appreciate and respect authors and all the hard work they put into a book. And I usually can find something positive to write about along with the things that I didn't like. But, if I'm being completely honest, I just could not find one redeeming quality anywhere in this story. I think I've been very fortunate that most of the books I've read and reviewed have been books that I've loved. Unfortunately, I just can't recommend this book. Thanks so much for your comment Victoria! I always love to see what our readers think of our reviews :)
