Well, at first this did get to me. But towards the end, it became less of an epic fantasy and more of a romance. Which still doesn’t make much sense when it is more portal fantasy, but never explains why is it only the human world and Asper.
Milla is alright, she has motivations, she has goals. And when her father died, I still understood her. When I began to completely misunderstand her, it was after she met Parker. Such as how his ex-girlfriend could mistake that simple kindness as love.
And the romance was nothing more than perhaps an attraction but the ex-girlfriend said that they were in love. And well, you can guess how ridiculous it was. And how the story split between the human world and Apser with zero explanation as to why Asper and the human world are even linked together.
As for the scenes with her mother, there is nothing complex about it. Milla is simply hating her, and well the woman isn’t trying hard enough to be her mother. Or even trying to show or win her over. And well, if she is cruel, where are all the cruel things she has done. Show, not tell please.
And that is why I simply gave up on the book realising how illogical many things were. And realising that Milla is plain stupid, and doesn’t really try to get to her father’s killer or anything. She never takes any chances to help herself or to break out or even anything. And you can say this is why I dropped it.
