OKAY SO MUCH HAPPENED IN THESE FEW CHAPTERS!!!
First off, I know many of you have been feeling confused at the beginning but trust me it gets clearer as it goes. It's already making more sense isn't it? <33
My favourite thing in these chapters were getting to know more about Alex's and Darlington's past. Little bits but makes so much more sense. And let me just say, I feel SO sorry for Alex. She's right. Where were the Lethe when she was suffering and going mad? When she turned to alcohol and drugs to keep herself sane? When a FREAKING GHOST tried to rape her? She has every right to rage against the Lethe. *hugs Alex*
I absolutely wanted to hug Darlington too when he like understood Alex and let her break things. Someone please do that for me when I'm mad. Take notes.
The party scene. It left me dizzy. All that magic and craziness and ugh Alex and Darlington! I don't like ship them (I'm not as attached to the characters yet) but they had chemistry in those scenes and Bardugo writes beautifully. And that sort of dream Alex has with Darlington in bed, his fingers ending in claws thing? INTRIGUED.
And ahh he's such a gentleman that when he realized what happened, he's all like "Ugh Alex report me anmd feel free to leave" and I'm like dude you were literally drugged. Alex forgives you. Now shut up.
Also super intrigued regarding Darlington's disappearance. What exactly happened?
The scene with the gluma OMG I was on the edge of my seat. The action scenes rock.
Also can we just appreciate how freaking badass Alex is. I mean all that happened and then she smiles and goes "Now i get to try to kill them"
Turner is intriguing too. Like he's annoying. Keeps getting on Alex's nerves but I can't really blame him either. It is his case and she keeps interfering. But I wish he'd work with her rather than going nose to nose with her.
Also I love Dawes. She's like that introvert friend who is thrown into a crazy world by her extrovert friends. She's the mum friend who grumbles as she helps you then goes back to her quiet work.
