My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I never thought that having a magician or even a gypsy king as your lover would be fun and amazing. I’ve never adored any magician before. Though I love to watch magic show, but fall in love with a magician?? Nay!
It has never occurred to me before.
But this time, a magician, yes, you don’t hear it wrong. A Magician, a gypsy has stolen my heart. He brings me into his world, his magic world. I can’t help but falling in love with Criminy, a ringmaster who owns a circus caravan in Sang, a strange world where cute bunnies can be deadly to a mere human like us.
Criminy Stain, who is he? He’s a bludman. He drinks blood, but he’s not dead, and he’s not a vampire. He’s powerful, hard to kill, wild, untamed, and wicked as they come.
If you don’t know what a combination between a dark, romantic, yet humorous person will look like, just take a look at Criminy. Get to know him. The way he grins… it will melt you in a heartbeat like ice cream in an oven. Honestly, his sense of humour is one of the important things that makes him different from another… vampires?? Oh, not really. I told you he’s not a vampire.
Frankly, the only downside that Criminy has is…. his hand, black scaled hand. Yeah… I wish he didn’t have those black scaled hand. Why… why should a perfect creature like him has those… *trailed off*
When I read this book, it was hard to not to think about Edward and Bella in Twilight (since it’s the only vampire book I read my whole life). Mock me all you want and I’m not ashamed of it.
I’m not saying that this book is another Twilight book. No no. It’s much better than Twilight for me. Hehehe. But let’s see. We can count a lot of similarities here.
First, there is a super handsome yet dangerous blood drinker who appears as hard as stone in front of others but as soft as cheesecake in front of his woman. Hmm who is that *whistling*
Second, their worlds are entirely different, but they can’t help falling in love with each other. It’s like they’re destined to be together. Getting more familiar?
Third, it’s another story of “so the lion fell in love with the lamb”. The man is the predator and the lady is the prey.
I know some of you (me included) are growing tiresome of Vampire books, but there’s no way this book will disappoint you. Delilah did a wonderful job in creating a world where a species called Bludman exists in that world. This book is awesome. I can’t stop thinking about Criminy when I read it.
Err… I supposed to tell you about another aspect of the book in this review, but I can’t explain why I can’t write about another thing in my review besides Criminy. Maybe this is the worst review you guys ever read *cough* Please don’t blame my incapability in writing a good review. I guess part of this is because of Criminy. Deep in my heart, I believe Criminy has thrown a love spell on me. That’s why it turns out this way. Can’t help it guys… *shrug my shoulder*
Maybe I will find an enchanted locket in the future. Maybe another Criminy is waiting for me in another universe right now.
I must be crazy.
