Ok so it’s official. I now have actual textual reasons to hate Lucian, Seth, and the dude whose name I can’t remember who is the head of the council and whose name ultimately doesn’t matter.

I am glad that the “love triangle” has finally been cleared up (I’ve been loathe to mention it because of how much I hate them). Oh and look, so far every bit of the prophecies she’s been told have come true. -_- But of course our protag doesn’t possess critical thinking skills and practically forgets everything until AFTER the fact. Sometimes not until WAY after the fact.

Lucian (which btw, does anyone else notice that people named Lucian/Luscious are always this way?) is shown to be the power hungry ego maniacal asshole that I and the protag have suspected him being from the start. And manipulative as shit to boot.

Seth has turned into a power hungry ego maniacal asshole who doesn’t give a shit about our protag. And doesn’t give a shit if he completely drains her because he gets ALL THE POWER.

And we had to have Artemis come and tell her that power can flow both ways. Because she can’t figure that out on her own.

I’m really only reading at this point in hopes that everyone gets annihilated by the gods. I really want that to happen and will be disappointed if/when it doesn’t happen.

The cover is still pretty but at this point I don’t really care any more.
