This was my first read by Richelle Mead. I never got into her Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series, I grew up on Buffy and found the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz WAY more interesting than the premise of Mead’s books. That being said, when I first heard about Soundless I was excited, it actually sounded amazing and let’s not skip over that cover! HELLO diversity!! But that’s about all I was able to enjoy when it comes to Soundless.
HOURS, upon hours of my life I will not get back that were wasted on trying to be interested and enjoy this book. Remember, I was VERY excited to read this! Fei goes on my list of boring, one-dimensional characters that have no depth whatsoever. The writing style? Painful. Boring. Flat. And did I mention boring? I swear I was close to putting tape on my eyes to try to stay awake and keep reading. I kept waiting for the storyline to pick up, for something interesting/intriguing to finally happen to make it worth the continuous torture I went through while reading, but that never happened. Granted, I did DNF this at Chapter 10 (page 133), so maybe something finally happened after that chapter. But there are 19 chapters + the epilogue and to get as far as I did something dramatic and plot twisty should have either have happened to started to brew at that point.
Soundless, you were a complete disappointment and
I kind of, I WISH I never read you.
Until next time bibliophiles,
