Book Review: Counting Shadows By Olivia Rivers

Book Description:
Two hearts, one kiss...
...Nothing left.

Faye’s soul-mate is everything she should hate—an Angel, an outcast, an enemy. Ashe is just one more imperfection in her life that somehow makes everything… perfect.

Until he’s murdered.

With the only person she loves ripped away, Faye sets out to avenge Ashe’s death. The task seems impossible, until she finds Lor—an Angel who looks nearly identical to Ashe’s killer. Arrogant and hot-headed, Lor is everything Ashe wasn’t. But Lor is connected to her soul-mate’s past, and Faye needs him to find the killer—even if Lor is potentially deadly.

But when Faye discovers that Ashe’s past isn’t as black and white as she thought, she faces an impossible choice: Give up the hunt, and risk the lives of others. Or continue pursuing Ashe’s murderer, and forfeit the lives of everyone in her family—including herself.

My Thoughts:
This book I got from Netgalley and it sounded cool and interesting so I thought I'd give it a try!

Prolog was interesting, caught my attention then it got a little off and I couldn't stay focused on the book. The writing wasn't enough to keep me in the characters seemed lame and nothing exciting but I kept at it.

It wasn't until I was half way through that it got interesting. So needless to say I finished it but it just wasn't something...AMAZING that I would want to yell to everyone! HEY COME READ THIS BOOK! you know?

We don't really get beyond Faye's bedroom and into the outside world and that seemed off to me but whatever, I think I kept waiting for Ashe to pop back in somewhere but he doesn't. And Faye trying to be angry and seek revenge didn't really fit her (I thought) I don't know the whole thing just seemed off. It's not that it was horrible just wasn't the most exciting thing out there! so I give it about a 3/5 stars because I finished it, it got me interesting even though it took me half of the book to get there.

Overall it was ok if you want an easy quick read.

Language: mild
Sexual Content: mild
