‘The Prophecy’ by Jennifer L. Armentrout was boring.
This is going to be a short review, mainly because I’m so drained from the book itself that I don’t have the capacity to talk about it as well. I have to confess, I didn’t realise this was the fourth in a series when I requested this from the publisher and I berated myself silly once I found out. With my TBR schedule at the very limit, I didn’t have the time to read the first three books, so I went into this completely blind.
I didn’t understand a few things but I was determined to get through it. Like most books in a series, the majority of it was explained in snippets and I wasn’t too out of the loop. But, because I was still an outsider to it all, I couldn’t find it in myself to care about the characters or the story. Not only that, the writing was sloppy and there were so many typos and glaring mistakes to the book that I found it a massive drag. I couldn’t wait to finish it so I didn’t have to read anymore. I had a headache from rolling my eyes so much at the language used to describe people. Even the dialogue was awful! I understand that the greek gods are in modern times but I seriously doubt they would say ‘yep’ in conversation.
My honest thoughts on the book? I think I would have been more invested in it if I had read the series from the beginning. That is my fault and I don’t hold that issue against the author. However, if this book is any indication of how the first book is, I doubt I would ever have made it to The Prophecy because the writing is just not for me.
