I was excited to read another book by Melissa Marr, as I loved her "Wicked Lovely" series. However, I was quite disappointed with "Carnival of Souls." There were a lot of great themes and ideas that weren't fully developed.
I could not get into this book really. I read most of it and skimmed the end and ...eh. Mallory is just not strong enough to be interesting, really. Kaleb is good, but this book feels really unbalanced. Too bad because I thought the premise of Aya not wanting to marry and "breed" and being willing to kill to avoid it was really interesting. Oh well. I have gotten her Wicked Lovely, book 1 and am willing to give her another try.
Welcome to The City in the realm of the daimons. At the heart of The City is the Carnival of Souls where both murder and pleasure are for sale. The Carnival is also the site of a deadly competition where, once each generation, daimons can fight to the death for a chance to join the ruling class. Melissa Marr’s new book, Carnival of Souls, will draw you into a dark, violent world where daimons and witches are mortal enemies and the main characters are swept up in a deadly struggle for power.
