TSTL is a kind way to describe the heroine of this book. Ciel is whiny, childish, and rarely thinks any single thing through. Add to that a ridiculous love triangle and a nearly incomprehensible plot and this book was nearly a DNF. The small glimmers of humor and a hope that the story might end up somewhere close to coherent kept me in it until the end but I doubt I'll be continuing on with this series. I don't need all my fantasy to be dark and gritty, but I do need them to make sense and to have likable characters. This had neither.
