Can I just say I'm going a little braindead? I've been reading everyday, I only stop when I have to do my tasks and it feels like I can't reason with the books anymore.
And there's so much info, I don't know what I should do with it. Anyway, can I just say Darkfever is really, really baaaaad. Don't read it.
There are good chunks of it that feel like a waste so dumb it is, like when she
takes her clothes off in the middle of the street and NO ONE bloody notices it. Wtf? The author writes some more sexual scenes like it's softporn or something.
It's so embarassing.
