I was so happy when I noticed this book exists: I was more than ready to jump into this world and live throug some adventure with familiar characters. I have always loved all kind of mysteries and as a child I watched Scoopy Doo tv-series. I loved this little mystery story and I especially loved how different characters worked as a group.

I liked how realistic characters felt, but to be honest I was more interested in some minor characters' stories than main characters.

I thought this would have been fun and light but suddenly characters were dealing with quite disturbing issues and it took some pleasure away because I had thought I would get a fluffy story.

I was entertained but after all the hype I think I waited to get more.

Thinking about how this is the first in the series characters were pretty okay: I especially loved a medical examiner who was a bit peculiar.

This wasn't really thrilling but a solid crime mystery.

I think this had a good solid ground for the story but execution made this slightly dry: if surrounding & atmosphere, maybe even characters had been a bit more fleshed out this propably would have been amazing.

I liked the characters: there was a really nice variety of them and everyone was somehow interesting.

I loved the atmosphere and that was the best aspect of this book. Dark and mysterious!

I disliked the writing style: it was unnecessary wordy and it was hard to get the idea behind sentences.

This didn't really have a plot. There was a group of people who had random discussions with each other but nothing really happened.

Characters were too two-dimensional and there were so many characters that were almost barely names.

This was a bit slow but sometimes creepy and I liked it. Overall I more liked than disliked the atmosphere.

Story was interesting enough but there were some really unbelievable and/or predictable twists.

I loved dialogies and characters were likable too. My favorit was Fermín, he was awesome!

This was perfect for the season: it rained often and it was so foggy all the time :D This wasn't easy book to read because this made me feel so sad: there were so many dying or being old.

I liked the story, this had a mystery that revealed itself slowly. This was interesting but at some point dragged a bit.

For me there were two secondary characters that were more interesting than the main characters: Hecate and Lexa. Both were friends of Persephone. Hades & Persephone were somehow too perfect to be really interesting.

This didn't feel really much like a mythological story. This was retelling but wordbuilding and mythological “vibe“ were missing.

This was entertaining and easy to read but didn't feel really special.

I really loved characters, this had several secondary characters that were awesome and I liked how we got Helene's POV.

The beginning was a bit slow after the first action-packed chapter but picked up after 50 %. Then we got to see more of those strange creatures and merciless world similar to first book.

This book made me cry several times. This had twists that I didn't see coming.

The beginning of the book was awesome! It was so creepy & scary and I loved it. I liked the darkness in this book and I wanted to continue reading even though this was quite slow.

This was unbelievable predictable and that was a big disappointment. Well there was a tiny turn of events that I hadn't guessed but everything went like I thought in the big picture. I still liked the ending scene.

When this realization hits, you start doing the math. How much time do I have left? How much can I fit into that small space?

I liked Fable and the crew even though they didn't stole my heart. I loved their friendship and how they supported each other.

It seems like I would love pirate stories - I loved the atmosphere, adventure, freedom and how merciless their life was. This really didn't have many big twists or scenes and sometimes felt a bit slow. But overall I would say this went forward all the time and was easy to read.

I think this had potential to make me feel so much but then characters felt a bit flat and that murdered my feelings.

This was quite dark: the war was coming and that was a major threat all the time. There were also lighter moments. This was a bit slow.

This was easier to read now when the world was familiar and there were some really awesome creatures in it.

Carrington was maybe a bit too sweet for me, but I still could feel for her. Our villain was nicely creepy though. I love to hate some characters :D

This was really hard to read because the society was so creepy and this was awful & dark. But I loved how well it was described and how it felt me feel.

Plot was maybe a bit predictable but I still liked it.

This felt slow and it was strange. I thought this would have been more fast-pacing.

I have never before read Winnie-the-Pooh series so I finally thought it would be time to read them through.

This was the third kn the series and includes poems. The two first books were stories.

These poems were nice, some were really brilliant but most of them were just okay in my opinion. I think stories were more “my thing“. Maybe I thought these would be more thought-provoking than they were.

Characters were pretty awesome but not so many of them got many pages. This was mainly a book about Ronan and it was interesting to learn more about his past but I would have loved to see more others as well.

I really loved the atmosphere and writing, this was mysterious and partly a bit creepy. There were also scary moments.

I loved the beginning but at some point this dragged and overall not so much happened.

I couldn't relate to characters, they were boring.

I thought this would be fun so I was a disappointed. I don't read fanfiction either so wasn't really interested in some parts.

I didn't like how there was so much everything: the basic story but also group chats, direct messages, text messages, fanfiction and messages on discussion boards.

I loved how there were many different mystical/creepy creatures.

I loved the world and this started brilliantly: the first chapter had action and captured my interest. I liked mysterious atmosphere.

After 50 % this was more about smut & romance than the mystery this book started with. This started to feel dragged and I lost my interest. There were some good twists at the end but some weren't really surprising.

I read a Finnish fantasy with kings, rebels & love-triangle.

This felt more like historical fiction than fantasy because there were scarcely fantasy elements. Characters were a bit two-dimensional and that made it harder to relate to them. I loved the atmosphere.

I hated how there were suddenly skipped months or years because it always takes some time to get back into the story.

Promising start of the series.

Unpopular opinion

There were too many POVs and characters and there wasn't any kind of recap in the beginning. I hated the beginning for that reason, it was hard to get into this book.

This was plain boring and felt long because almost nothing happened. I think I have been spoiled by better fantasy and in this book battles were underwhelming.

Repetitive and wordy.

I have started to like Asha so I was happy that here we got more of her. It seems that not all characters are that memorable because I had to think if I had read about some of them earlier or not.

Two first stories were really cute and light. It was interesting to see how Maylak started to feel that something was going to happen soon. I think the last story was the one I liked the least.

This was again something light to read.

I was a bit disappointed how Holmes and Watson in this book were exact duplicates of their great-great-great-grandfathers. Romance was unnecessary and unbelievable. We all know what S. Holmes used but it isn't endearing to read about a teenager in modern world using drugs.

Setting was nice but this wasn't really thrilling.

I think this was overall just too unbelievable for me. Okay read but flat.
