The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.
While I still like Isis as a character, in this book, she frustrated me a little in what I would consider to be the stupid choices she made, but now, I think I can attribute her age to that to some degree. I think she was sincere, but as a reader, I found myself shaking my head. And Eros? In the most diplomatic way I can think to say it, he's a monumental manipulative jerk, and I wanted to slap him numerous times just for the principle of it all. Galilea, on the other hand, was a character I liked immediately. Throughout everything that's going on, from the moment she was introduced, she came across as the voice of reason and sanity, something I thought was very much needed. I really hope she's in the third book.
I know I definitely want to read the next book in this series, and I'll give Fruit of Misfortune a 5/5 platypire rating.
