Ngs I hated Like Archibald Grayson s reason for abandoning his children and wife Like Aiofe s whining and general lack f concern for the conseuences Her brother s a total jerk though I think that s just a character aspect he and Dean have some hysterical arguments Dean stood by Aoife even when she made really stupid decisions and I do mean stood by Their relationship took a hiatus in this novel as its focus is mostly Phoebe and Her Unicorn Activity Book on Aoife Still majorly disappointing for all us shippers who wanted some steamy scenes Bethina s character didn t develop at all despite the lovely romance we have blooming between her and CalBut the worst was the plot While The Mightmare Garden skipsver Middle Book Syndrome I was thrown by where the story headed Capture escape capture escape I need than that from a plotline It wasn t until the very end it came together and made sense to me while I could guess what the ending would be I had nothing to base that The Tenant on but past novels I ve read It s a cliffhanger that totally got me excited for book threeHopefully the final novel in the Iron Codex Trilogy will have some maturity development for Aoife who s now annoyed me in both novels Kittredge s writing style is very heavyn the details in a lot Unstoppable (Tracers, of places it feltver edited and The Moon and the Thorn over done I love the creeptastic Mist scenes and how dark the fantasysteampunk aspects are but for the most part I found myself skimmingver the exposition and description infodumpsIf you got through The Iron Thorn you ll probably like this seuel even but it s not a series I go UQ Holder!
