I am a huge fan of the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. Read them loads of times and can't get enough of them. Which is why I freaked out when I found out about her new book, The Immortal Rules, and was even more excited when I got an e-arc of it.
I've been reading it for a week now and I'm still not even half way through it and not for lack of trying either. I just can't seem to get into it. But Everyone is talking about how fantastic it is.
So here is my question: if you have read it, did you love it from the beginning or did it take you a while to get into it and is the end fantastic and make up for the slow start? Cause I would really hate to give up on a Julie Kagawa book, but I'm just not getting sucked into this. Should I push through it till the end?
