Book Review – Autumn of the Grimoire By J.L. Vamp – 2.5 stars

Warning: May contain minor spoilers, but opening comments are spoiler-free. Check out my Reading Ranting page for more.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I was a bit disappointed with this book since it looked so good, but ultimately I just didn’t get into it. I read it all because I wanted to know the ending, but if it had been longer, I might have DNFed it. I’m actually relieved to have given a book a low rating this year since I was beginning to think I was being too nice maybe. But I’m just lucky apart from this book.

What I liked…

Once the romance got going, I quite liked it. 

It was a genuinely interesting story.

What I didn’t like…

The writing was good, but not very exciting most of the time. It was just… ok.

There were a few things that I just didn’t get at the beginning that I felt needed more explanation for me to understand the story.

Transitions felt rushed and often skipped completely to the point it felt jarring.

The romance jumped some key moments too and just didn’t feel natural.

Final thoughts…

I don’t know if I want to read the rest of the series but I might try them if they’re on Kindle Unlimited.
