NOTE: I was provided with an e-ARC of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Balzer + Bray for letting me read this!

I had to DNF this one, you guys. I tried. I really did. But it just has too much going on. I spent almost all of the time I was reading confused, and that does not make for a good book for me. Before I wrote this full review, I posted this GIF on Goodreads in an attempt to sum up my feelings and it still stands true.

What is going on gif

There is so much going on right away – you’re just thrown into this world of vampires and mechanical human parts and all kinds of stuff – but you don’t really know why the world’s like this. It’s just a weird and unsettling world that doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. And most of those things don’t seem to add much to the story, if I’m honest.

I do want to point out that I know A LOT of people really loved this book, and I’m mostly in the minority here. I do think there are people who will love this story (and the premise was really cool), but in the end, it just wasn’t for me.

  1. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t care for this one! I honestly had no idea there were even vampires in there. I really dislike when an entire book is just flat out confusing…it makes me not want to read it. I think I’ll skip this for now.

  2. Aw, it always sucks when your friends DNF/dislike a book you love! I really enjoyed this one and the mash of all genres and THINGS, but I understand how it might not work for everyone. 🙂
