This is the 12th book in the Jane Yellowrock series. This one was a DNF for me. In full disclosure I have struggled with the last couple books in this series; they have been a bit bizarre and felt really long to me.

I am not sure why I was struggling with this book so much; it just wasn't going anywhere fast for me. There were a few spots where Hunter spent a couple pages describing how Jane dressed for the day...this was just boring. I tried to sit down to read this multiple times and just found myself reading the same pages over and over because I just couldn't stay focused on this story. I feel like the last few books have just been boring. Lots of new characters and lots of politics...not really my thing.

I am honestly not sure if it is me or the series that has changed but I struggled and struggled to get through this one and found myself constantly finding other things to do rather than read this book. Maybe I just don't have the patience I once did.

I am still enjoying Hunter's Soulwood series so I will continue on that one...but I am done with Jane and her peeps. I love them and this series will always hold a special place in my heart but it should have ended 3 or 4 books ago.

Overall this one was a DNF for me, it just could not hold my attention. I really loved the earlier books in this series but the last few I have really struggled with. There are just too many characters, too much politics, and the books feel really long. I am done with this series.
