Common Knowledge



I liked this enough just as with the previous books the pace is very slow, by this point I had really hoped it picked up some but unfortunately no. I love the overall story, this curse that Lucinda and Danielle must end, call me a hopeless romantic or tortured soul and I enjoyed it. I was able to take my time reading and soak up the story and their journey. I will say this it definitely is a hard read because of the slow pace but it is a fairly great love story. The series could probably have been condensed into 3 books but hey I'm not a writer or publisher so who knows the reasoning behind the extended books.

✔️ Slow pace
✔️ Romantic Journey
✔️ Fallen Angel saga
✔️ Character Driven

I recommend if you are a patient reader, you just enjoy a story unfolding without dissecting every little thing that could have been better.

The rating is generous.

Though not necessary to read in any specific order or at all for that matter, this was a cute soft break from the full on Story of Danielle and Luce.

Finally, The discovery of the beginning of this curse. I won't spoil it for anyone. This has been so far my least favorite, even though we finally got somewhere with the storyline. I just felt some got a bit repetitive, and it will pull me out of the story. But 3 stars for me isn't bad, I still like the book enough and still had fun reading it.
