In short: Girl wants to die because life sucks. Demon-guy-human-thing saves her and they make a shady deal. And REVENGE, but sort of kinda not.
First line: “I was supposed to die at 5:57 am.”
On Blackbriar Academy:
If she was bullied for being ugly, weird, or different why didn’t she transfer to another school instead of going to an expensive private school where she was treated like this? No one should feel like killing themselves because of other people, especially when you don’t seem to bother letting the parents at least know something about what’s going on. She wasn’t even going to leave a note to let them know anything (because she didn’t want them to feel guilty, which a parent will, anyway).
On the super hot new bod:
Also another thing, I know that when girls get some sort of makeover or something as simple as a haircut, we feel better about ourselves/gain some confidence. But with Edie, I think she got a total personality change, which I don’t know what to think about that. You would still be you, even if with a transformation like that.
I took a break reading Mortal Danger before I even got halfway through and read 3+ other books because I honestly didn’t care. The whole thing just reeked of shallowness and I hated how quickly this chick started falling for Kian. Like, hello, you don’t know if you can even trust this guy you’ve only known for a little while.
Anyway, I thought this book would be more about revenge instead of, you know, her relationship and everything with Kian. She didn’t really have to do much of anything, other than think about Kian. I guess I just expected something more on the lines of the Kuroshitsuji type of thing. The whole story fell flat, even though the beginning actually seemed kind of promising. I’m sorry to have to give this book under three stars, but it just wasn’t entertaining. I usually can read a book in a day, but I avoided this one for a week or more.
