I absolutely love that this was in Tark’s POV. I have nothing against Okiku but I just wasn’t impressed with her either. Like I said in my review for the first book, Tark is absolutely hilarious and I loved being in his head a million times more. His emotions were more genuine to me and I had no problem being sympathetic to him. This book is definitely my favorite out of the two! Especially since the setting is in the Suicide Forest which is one of the places I am dying to visit one day!!
This book challenged me a little more than the first and the plot line was more intriguing. New relationships were formed with both new and old characters and I loved seeing the change in them.
Beside liking this one better, there were still things I wasn’t impressed about. It was super predictable and I still lacked that important connection with the characters. The ‘clues’ Rin threw at me were extremely obvious so that made me guess the exact ending ages before it happened.
I was right.
I hate being right.
I love it when a book makes me think one thing but flips a 180 on me. Sadly, this didn’t happen here.
There was a quote in this book that almost made me faint because of how perfect it was so I’ll just end my review with it:
“There is nothing sadder than a book that hasn’t been cared for, a book too broken to read.”
