Blood of the Wicked - Karina Cooper Probably more like 3.5 stars.I'm not big into witch storylines, but this one caught my attention and held it, probably because it was so dark and grim. Cooper is amazing at that, and showing just how hopeless this world the characters live in is. I think that extreme darkness has to be considered. At first glimpse, many of the characters are unlikable, unsympathetic...from the viewpoint of a person in OUR world, not theirs.After I shifted my perspective on how to read the characters, I was able to deal with how much I didn't like characters a lot better. Were there things I didn't really like, or wished were a lot different? Hell yes. But will I read the next book? Of course.Besides, Karina Cooper is an awesome woman. :)
