My True Love Gave To Me - Mini Review

The Girl who woke the Dreamer by Laini Taylor


This story is the biggest disappointment of the book. But only because I had the highest expectations and was really looking forward to reading this one. I love Taylor’s “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” and was pushing my expectations higher and higher while reading “My True Love Gave To Me”. The idea of the story was not even bad per se. I just did not care for the characters at all. I could not get into the story until I finally started skimming the pages. Taylor’s writing was beautiful as ever but I just did not feel this story.
