#ReviewShare #PNR City of the Fallen (Dark Tides, #1) by Diana Bocco

City of the Fallen (Dark Tides, #1)City of the Fallen by Diana Bocco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? In general, Diana Bocco’s writing is good and the plot pulled me in but some parts of the story seemed forced to me. The sex scenes seemed hurriedly thrown in as a way of rewarding the reader so I didn’t find these too appealing.

How realistic was the characterisation? Most of the time, the characters were plausible. But again, the convenient sex scenes seemed unreal. The pacing wasn’t rushed so you could take your time to get to know the characters and I especially liked the inner turmoil of the main characters.

Did you feel you were experiencing the time and place in which the book was set? The scene building in this story deserves an applause. It was like a 3D movie. By the time you are finished with how Diana Bocco describes a certain scene, you can smell, breath and touch the background she has created.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
