Book Review: Chalice Of Roses
This is a collection of short stories, total 4.
1) There is no room for character development. Seeing that there is a limited amount of pages, it is almost certain that the stories do not dive into the characters, their background etc. It makes sure that the characters are flat, there is no 'dimension' about them.
2) It's too fast. Almost all the stories proceed for about 2-5 days. And in one story, the hero and heroine just fell in love/ wanted to get married after meeting each other ONCE in real life! (One has to discount the "dreams" they had of each other)
3) It starts with the hero/heroine searching for the Holy Grail in every story, since that seems to be the theme. I find it ridiculous that they (hero and heroine) would want to get the Holy Grail for (something like) saving their country. It is just pushing the boundaries i set for Paranormal Romances (not in a good way). Plus the stories aren't told nicely, it was too fast, hence I didn't like this book.
In conclusion, seeing that i have no good things to say about this book, i'll give this 2.5/5. Not one i would want to re-read it.
