Anyway, back to Iron Crowned. I was completely exasperated by Eugenie's actions throughout this entire book.
It got to the point where, truly, I think I hate her. Every single thing she said or thought made my blood boil. And she does something early on in this book that greatly added to that dislike. I hate reading about cheaters. I especially hate reading about cheaters who don't even torment themselves over the cheating.
Who have no guilt, who actually justify their actions to themselves. How old are you? How in the world could an author write a main character who behaves that way and then expect the readers to actually still like that character?
She is immature. She is impulsive. She is a whiner. She goes on and on about how broken up she is about the war, how much it pains her that people are dying because of her.
Then she gets in a tricky situation and is so damn impulsive that she's ready to destroy a huge group of people, just to ensure she gets away. She acts like she doesn't want power, that she never asked for this and just wants her normal, human life back. Then in the next breath she's bragging about how much more powerful she is than everyone else.
She's all "Do you know who I AM? And don't get me started on her love life. And I use the word "love" very loosely. But Eugenie doesn't. No, she throws the word "love" around everywhere, but it is all telling me--never showing.
And no, sex does not equal love. I think someone needs to tell Eugenie that. And Richelle Mead. It just baffles my mind that an author would write a main character that is so unlikeable. But then I get to the end, only to discover that the thing Eugenie did that aggravated me so, the thing that made me decide I probably hated her And a very obvious one, at that.
Mead writes like a damn paint-by-numbers. I'm done.
I read a review yesterday :waving to Thenia: on Magic Bleeds and it couldn't have been more timely for me. And I think it's comical that the part of her review I liked the most--and totally agree with when it comes to Magic Bleeds and all the Kate Daniels books--is also what made me hate this book. This entire book was just one big plot device. This book felt like a filler book. It is the book where I decided that I despise Kiyo more than any other character.
I am still curious as to where the next book will go. There is still a prophecy to worry about, so I guess I will read the next book in the series. View all 63 comments. This was so worth the wait. Mead does not disappoint!!! I'm reeling over this book, it might take me a while to get to sleep, so I thought I'd put a few random thought on here.
Eugenie and Dorian have teamed up in a war waged in the Otherworld by the Rowan Queen, after her son Leith was killed by Dorian for the kidnap Fantastic!!!! Eugenie and Dorian have teamed up in a war waged in the Otherworld by the Rowan Queen, after her son Leith was killed by Dorian for the kidnap and repeated rape of Eugenie.
Eugenie wants this war to end with as little bloodshed as possible. So Dorian brilliantly deceives Eugenie into going on a quest to find the iron crown, which would make her feared and respected among the other rulers of the Otherworld. And Dorian decides it's a good idea for Kiyo to help her, and thus Kiyo goes on this quest with her, bad idea!
However Dorian doesn't disclose all he knows about the iron crown, and the real powers it possesses, and when Eugenie finds out she feels all betrayed. Well she really overreacts in a way that has really changed my feelings for her. I still feel that Dorian has genuine feelings for Eugenie, but he has his own a agendas too, but still Dorian doesn't hide this.
I'm not sure what his feelings ever were or are, it always seems he's keeping an eye on her for Maiwenn, and sex is an added perk. I can't go any farther without spoilers for this book. It was great, and if you're a fan of the series, don't miss this one!! Mead is fantastic!! View all 20 comments.
This might have been a little more than a 3 star book, but Eugenie is such an obtuse character that I had to issue a demerit. The war sparked by events of the last book rages on in Iron Crowned. It makes for an interesting backdrop - or rather, it would have if Mead had given a glimpse of the various battles as opposed to mere tactical updates.
Am I supposed to cheer Eugenie on? Think her fabulous? Or This might have been a little more than a 3 star book, but Eugenie is such an obtuse character that I had to issue a demerit.
Or is Mead content with me hating her protagonists? I ask because Eugenie sparked in me the same frustrated disapproval Rose Hathaway inspires. Georgina Kincaid, too , now that I think on it. Ah, Dorian. Delightfully, he makes plenty of appearances throughout the book.
Unlike Eugenie, I can accept him for what he is: Sure, he can be manipulative, but he never strips Eugenie of her control. Instead, he seems hell-bent on making sure she has as much power as possible, even if that means putting himself at risk. She annoyed me far more in this installment, as she allowed her emotions to spin out of control countless times. She is one of the least wily characters I have ever come across. Eugenie only understands brute force, blunt words, indignance and outrage.
She lacks any of the finer nuances needed to adequately rule particularly where the fae are concerned. Time and again, Eugenie refuses to consider advice.
She makes decisions wholly founded on her need to rebel. Too bad that her acknowledgement is always too late. The plot?
Somewhat aimless. With a war being fought in the background, why are we focusing on all this crap? Oh, right. Because Eugenie is a horrid leader who fulfills only the bare requirements of duty.
I question the inclusion of a random ghost - the information she provided could have been gleaned some other way. The war with Katrice and its results are predictable once the action gets going. The Big Dramatic Reveal…I saw that coming only pages in. But will I keep reading? Yes, I will. And of course, more than anything, I am desperate to spend more time with Dorian. For now, at least.
UF fans, Fae lovers, Richelle Mead fans. First things first, I hate UF narrative. I usually find it too simple with too much inner dialogue. This book blew my mind! There was one thing about this book that bothered me and it was Eugenie. There are times when I want to beat her into submission because of her ego. I understand that Eugenie was hurt that Dorian left out an important fact about the Iron Crown, but I thought Eugenie reacted like a child. Her wounded pride made her blind to all the war politics while Dorian did what needed to be done during the war.
She pushed all her queenly duties onto Rurik and Shaya. She could have handled it better. What also pissed me off what the fact that in the midst of her anger towards Dorian, she fucked Kiyo.
But after my issue with Eugenie, I was almost going to put this down. Cue rant. The bastard! What Kiyo did, or rather fail to do with Leith and what Dorian failed to mention about the Iron Crown is no match. Kiyo screwed up big time in the last book and he did it again tenfold in this one. Once again, Dorian wins! View all 88 comments.
Loved parts of it, so frustrated by others. Dump the fox and keep the fairy king, woman! I enjoyed the storyline in this one, but I just felt like, after reading so many of Richelle Mead's VA and Bloodlines books, that this series is less polished in its execution. And the back and forth between Dorian and Kiyo is giving me whiplash. He's bad, I want that one.
No, wait, that one is bad, I want this one. Oh, no, I was right before, I want the first one, the second one is bad And, sorry, Eugenie, sweetie, your justifications for your actions don't fly with me. Overall, I still enjoyed the book and am enjoying the series. I'm just disappointed to see that not all her work is as awesome as prior reads. View 2 comments.
Nov 21, Jade rated it it was amazing. This book deserves more than 5 stars!!! The words that came to mind while I was reading were: I absolutely L. All I should write in order for you to believe the depth of excellency of this book should be to point out and that IT IS a Richelle Mead book. Not only a Richele Mead book, but a 3rd book in the series book.
If you've read at least one of her 3 series you know that she has this thing that on the 3rd book she pulls the carpet under your feet, shreddi This book deserves more than 5 stars!!! If you've read at least one of her 3 series you know that she has this thing that on the 3rd book she pulls the carpet under your feet, shredding your heart, doubt your like and dislikes for the main characters, shocks you senseless with the unexpected and leaves with a WTHMFG???!!!
This was no exception. I have to admit I am biased. Richelle Mead is my favoritest modern author: She has gained that tittle by writing 3 series of which I've read every book of and have loved each and every one of them.
No other author has that effect on me. If you haven't read the first two books 1. Where have you been?? You should not start here. You will only get lost. This books starts not long after book 2 left off. Dorian and Eugeine are at war with the Rowan Land. Euginie does not want the death and war this war is bringing and is given the option of looking for the Iron Crown. This crown is said to be so feared that it would stop the war by its mere sight. Eugine goes in seach for it and what happens next is a great, great ride that had me, smiling, laughing, crying and blowing my mind with excitement.
Have you ever been to that California Adventure Hunted Hotel ride? That is kind of what reading this felt like. Interesting at first, kinky even, mellow and then, BAM you're in a free fall you can't help but enjoy. I cannot wait for the next book,each day I wait will be torture.
Good thing is that there are other Richelle Mead releases this year to ease some of the suffering. Drop everything and get this one. You'll only wonder why you had not done that sooner. View all 3 comments. No way! Kill Kiyo! Kill him! I'll start a petition: I love Richelle Mead. I love her stories. Unfortunately, Eugenie is killing me!
But I cannot because of her. I love Dorian more and more with every book. She does not deserve him. And why is she still surprise that he has his own agenda? Is the crown just a trinket?
How could she believe it? I did not think that she was really stupid. Other than liking Kiyo which is really stupid. She goes from Dorian to Kiyo again and again! She knows what an idiot Kiyo is! And then she is surprised that he's trying to kill her! How come that she did not see it coming? Everyone else did I'm still loving the narrator for this series. Jennifer Van Dyck really gives a great voice to not only Eugenie, but all of the Otherworld characters.
I especially love her portrayal of Dorian. I don't much care for Kiyo, but I don't know if that's the writing, the voice, or his actions period. Iron Crowned went where I never expected it to. There were so many twists and turns and though I didn't really like much of what happened in the story, it still held my interest.
I'm not as thrilled with t I'm still loving the narrator for this series. I'm not as thrilled with this series as Vampire Academy, but I do like how Richelle Mead isn't afraid to take chances with her characters. She puts them through hell! But I also like that the MC's are strong, butt-kicking females who persevere through it all.
On to Shadow Heir Eugenie Markham is quite the kick-butt heroine! She is queen of the Thorn Land, half-human, half-fae and she is in the middle of a huge war with The Rowan Land.
This book starts off with a great start. And she still Eugenie Markham is quite the kick-butt heroine! And she still has to manage her Earthly job, banishing and dealing with unwanted visitors. Bills must be paid after all! I do not think I could handle the dual life. It's no wonder her judgement slips some in this book. Yes, it slips. In a few areas of life. Kiyo the kitsune, father Queen Maiwenn's daughter, sexy and very anti-war.
After basically abandoning her in the past book, she goes to him in an an insta-switch moment after she feels Dorian tricked her. Now I can deal with the love triangles where they like each other but don't act much on it. But I hate when one can't decide and ping-pongs her affections the way Eugenie is! Outside of the romantic aspects of this book, Eugenie is trying to one up Katrice of Rowan Land and the rumored Iron Crown might be the answer.
Jasmine really starts to come around in this book and I am starting to actually like her. And the famous animosity between Tim and Lara come to a surprise and unrealistic head when they finally meat! There is also a bit of story for a ghost named Deanna who wants Eugenie's help. While a small bit role. Some major turns in this book! While I did enjoy it overall, Eugenie's behavior and the relationship bounces did put me off a bit.
The story I love and Richelle Mead's writing style continues to impress. Few authors have drawn me into their worlds the was she has done so far. Mar 01, Katie rated it liked it. Kiyo needs to go I don't know why Eugenie can't see how wonderful Dorian is? This is a two star book; only getting an extra star for the final two chapters.
There wasn't a good flow to the plot. Eugenie spent awkward scenes in transition to this world and the next She wasn't even doing any banishing really; and the PI never really came into play. That made for a dull filler waiting for the view Kiyo needs to go That made for a dull filler waiting for the view spoiler [kidnapping and land transfer hide spoiler ] to take place, and then some more filler before the cliffhanger bomb was dropped Then the sex thing afterwards was weird.
Dating again lead to avoiding the otherworld, so Eugenie was away on a sexcapade, allowing view spoiler [her sister to be taken hide spoiler ] was a little too perfect and rushed. Whatever happened to funny gentry babyshowers, and helping her people find water. I don't know if I am disappointed in this book because it didn't turn out like I thought or what?
If you are a Kiyo lover you will most certainly enjoy it. This Bud's for you! Otherwise, if Dorian is close to your heart like mine ; then this story will break your heart. The very first few scenes where Dorian and Eugenie were a couple, and he was 'admiring' Eugenie's dress stolen from AH's comments I hope Dorian kills Kiyo - just like Leith! View all 5 comments. She must maintain her responsibilities in the Otherworld as Queen while also paying her bills and keeping her house as a part-time shaman in the real world.
War is raging between her land and the land of Rowan. At this point in a series we expect a character to really grow, but in Iron Crowned she does several things that truly had me disappointed in her.
She turns her back on newly acquired responsibilities, taking full steps backwards instead of forwards. She starts off in the novel as this kickass Queen, and then halfway through the book she ends up an Anita Blake cliche. Dorian continues to be the strongest and most enjoyable character to follow.
He is what he is. Although he does manipulate Eugenie at times in to doing something, he makes it clear to me! Even if it just happens to directly effects his best interest as well.
The few heart-touching moments in this one completely revolve around Dorian. At this point, HE makes the series for me. I want him to prevail, and to be happy! Without giving away too much, when you reach the last page, you will want to throw the book as it ends quite abruptly. I still have faith that with the events in this one that Eugenie will truly rise to her potential and be the Queen the Otherworld needs her to be!
Dark Swan is set to be a 4 book series, so the next book will be the end. And we only have… 10 months to find out what happens next. View all 40 comments. Really, I would LOVE nothing more then to post all the spoilers for all to see and save you from the trauma of this disaster of a book.
THis book will have to be chalked up to her one tragic mistake Surely dealing with another woman is better then being tricked. He must be the better choice.
Dorian is suddenly irresistable again and Kiyo's dog food. She gets pissed. So of course what else would she do??? By Who?
And lets not forget that she ONLY got that way because she had revenge sex with him. How nice!!! Wait for it OH Yeah! AND wants to calm her kids too?? Oh yeah But does she trust him.. Wanna take bets that she goes back to him in the next book???
Yeah I am ranting. I'm sorry. Only to SHOW it. I believe that was all he wanted. Now did he? Eugenie does NOT act like an adult with a brain in her head. She is reckless, irresponsible and completely childish.
The first two book, I could overlook the love triangle. Aug 24, Emma rated it liked it. This had a few surprises in it and was also quite irritating. I thought that I was annoyed with the author and the book but I'm annoyed with the characters, which should mean the author has done a good job..
Nov 13, Elena R a. Lunies R by: What were my thoughts on this book? Let me think for a second Back to my thoughts! It was a remarkable,suspenseful ongoing joy ride read for me! I literally, no LIES,jumped in my seat with anticipation from beginning till end,along with hundreds of profanity words that I just could not help expressing while reading.
So what's my point? Here goes,I don't normally get all riled up and crazed about a book; but for some bizarre reason all of Richelle Mead's series tend to What were my thoughts on this book? Here goes,I don't normally get all riled up and crazed about a book; but for some bizarre reason all of Richelle Mead's series tend to make me Angry,Happy,Sad,blissful.
Point blank,it makes me into one crazy Byotch! My emotions falter so quickly, I can never make up my mind whether I'm enjoying myself or not,but then I realized if I can express myself this way by reading just this one book.
She did a phenomenal job and understood her importance of taking care of her two kingdoms. The only thing that shoved my feelings aside a few times for her was,she didn't couldn't make up her mind between the two men she loved but couldn't make sense of "why" she loved one but then loved the other as well.
In My Opinion,she needed to learn to trust one of them and should have seen from day one Kiyo the shape-shifting bastard was not the right guy for her,although he came in handy for one thing in this novel,but it could have been avoided. On the other hand if she would have gave in and seen the the whole situation from Dorian the Oak King's Pov,she would have saved herself so much despair and heartache! She was such a dumb broad! Other than her mistakes,which I know she wrongfully regrets. She was an awesome Heroine in this series,and I wouldn't ask for less or more of who and what she is.
The whole plot of the story was quite remarkable. What fascinated me the most,was Eugenie going on the Hunt for the Iron Crown. I swear whenever the subject was up I shivered with goosebumps! It was written so perfectly,I felt like I was the heroine in the book and I was receiving this news. The First time Masthera explains to Eugenie what the Iron crown is,it pulled me into the story more than I already had.
Here's an example: One warn by the greatest,most powerful leaders in the 'shining ones' history. Leaders feared by all,who ruled many kingdoms" Just hearing the word Powerful Leader makes me ansty!
So when the unexpected happens and she does her thang! I fell in love with this series,and don't regret anything that T'd me off! Once again I loved it! IMO if you're someone who loves to read UF then pick this series up and start it or finish it!
The first book was meh,but only because the author introduces us to all the main characters and their powers etc. Get'em and read them A. My Review can also be viewed on: My thanks goes out to Rhonda W. For this rec, To be honest,I would have not picked up this series at all if it weren't for her. You're the Best Rhonda! View all 19 comments. Aug 25, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed the first two installments of the Dark Swan series but I found myself getting really frustrated as I was reading Iron Crowned.
Eugenie makes some seriously bad decisions and there were times I was about ready to strangle her! I'm getting really annoyed that she refuses to accept her role as queen of the Thorn Land, her people are suffering because she won't step up to her responsibilities and it's about time she grew up and did the right thing.
I've also had enough of the love tr I really enjoyed the first two installments of the Dark Swan series but I found myself getting really frustrated as I was reading Iron Crowned. I've also had enough of the love triangle and starting to wonder just how many times Eugenie will jump back and forth between Dorian and Kiyo. Dorian behaves badly in Iron Crowned and while I don't blame her for being angry I didn't like the fact that she goes running straight back to Kiyo before even talking to him to get his side of the story.
I've gone from really loving Kiyo in the first book to completely despising him now, his actions in Iron Crowned made me want to punch him! I don't think Dorian is much better though so at the moment I'm not routing for either one of them. I'd rather see Eugenie on her own and learning to become a decent queen. I am curious to see if Eugenie can redeem herself in the next installment though and although I saw the twist at the end coming it should make things interesting as the series progresses.
Unfortunately this wasn't my favourite book in the series but I'm hoping things will improve again from here onwards. View all 4 comments. I wanted to like Iron Crowned more than I did, but it left me with mixed feelings overall. The storyline from the previous books progressed a respectable amount, but there wasn't as much in character development. There was one relationship that I won't go into so I don't spoil it-it has no great bearing on anything else in the book.
The other rel I wanted to like Iron Crowned more than I did, but it left me with mixed feelings overall. The other relationships in the book are what left me with mixed feelings. Somebody tell me, does Eugenie have all the maturity of a 12 year old, or what? Snap reverse decisions, no coherent thought processes, selfish and petulant foot stomping revenge impulses. That was in relationships, but her actions elsewhere in the book seem as shallow.
Forgetting to get healed before a major AND dangerous mission? I'm not one to really care about the sex in a book, but every sex scene seemed to be a list to me.
Since I'm not one to care, I'll leave further comment to others. Ultimately, Eugenie's actions and demeanor in this book made the whole thing fall flat for me. I wanted to give it a three because it's not a bad book. It's well written and the story advances. Unfortunately, the main character is flatter than the other characters, which ruined it for me. May 11, Jamie rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the continuation of the journey of Eugenie Markham, the Thorn Queen of the Otherworld and a shaman-for-hire in the human world.
When we last saw Eugenie, she was proudly wearing a new crown to legitimize her standing as the Thorn Queen. As this book opens, she is practically living with the Oak King, my beloved Dorian, and waging a war with Dorian against the Rowan Queen, Katrice can't even remember if this is her name, but it's close.
This war was set into action by the behavior of th This is the continuation of the journey of Eugenie Markham, the Thorn Queen of the Otherworld and a shaman-for-hire in the human world.
This war was set into action by the behavior of the Rowan Queen's son, Leith, in the previous book. Eugenie and Dorian by this point are madly in love. They take turns showing up on the battle field, and although they appear to be winning the war, it is with a great cost of gentry life.
One day, a seer tells Eugenie about a mystical object, the Iron Crown. When Eugenie asks Dorian about it, he immediately tells her that it is too dangerous to go after. As the war continues, they discuss this crown in more depth and Eugenie appears to talk Dorian into getting it. Dorian believes that the crown is a way to end the war - the other monarchs would be so terrified of the owner of this crown that it would end the war and make Eugenie the most feared Monarch in the Otherworld.
Of course, the path to the Iron Crown is laced with iron, very harmful, if not deadly, to most gentry. Eugenie offers to take her sister, Jasmine with her, which Dorian shoots down. Dorian suggests she takes Kiyo barf because he is most capable of protecting her. So, Kiyo and Eugenie meet up, and things are rocky at first. They eventually warm up to one another and complete the task, although Eugenie must prove herself time and time again.
This is the real reason it is so powerful. Eugenie immediately goes ape shit over Dorian not telling her this. She feels that this is a grand betrayal and as she says so many times in this book, she "mentally" breaks up with him before she can tell him face-to-face. That's just a way of allowing herself to behave in any way she wants to.
It's a cop out and this is the point where I really start disliking Eugenie. On the way home to the Thorn land, Eugenie is feeling used, angry and heartbroken about Dorian's half-truths. She's so flipping mad that she view spoiler [has sex with Kiyo, the jerk that wouldn't avenge her previously.
Now, this is mostly to get back at Dorian, but are you kidding me Eugenie? She questions her actions before, during and after her sweaty sex time with Kiyo, but still finds a way to rationalize her behavior.
So, Eugenie and Kiyo make their way back to Dorian's castle where Eugenie lets loose her anger on Dorian. She does not allow him an explanation, she does not allow him to speak, she just rolls over him with her anger. She tells him they are over, and Dorian takes it all in stride. It's not until view spoiler [stupid fox face touches Eugenie's arm that he thinks Eugenie cheated on him, which she did.
Dorian immediately revokes hospitality and throws her out on her ass, which is better than she deserves. What kills me is that she continually tries to rationalize her actions - like - How can Dorian accuse me of betrayal when he lied to me; or, I had already broken up with him in my mind She acted rashly and on emotions with no thought of the consequences.
And really, Eugenie, is it appropriate to jump back and forth between Kiyo and Dorian's bed when you're mad at one of them? Dorian pretty much calls Eugenie a whore to her face, and I have to confess I was rooting him on at this point. At no point did she need to have sex with Kiyo to get back at Dorian. She just cheapened herself. When word comes that the Thorn land needs her, and that the truce talks are stalling, Eugenie returns to her castle in the Otherworld.
Dorian makes another appearance and tells her to get her shit together, which is the responsible thing to do. Soon, view spoiler [Jasmine is kidnapped by the Rowan Queen and Eugenie must go and rescue her. Why is that? In order to save lives and end the war, which is exactly what Dorian was proposing, she forcefully takes the Rowan land and bonds with it, effectively throwing Katrice out on her butt and taking over the land. Um, excuse me? Isn't this the reason why you threw down with Dorian?
Eugenie is torn about this. She doesn't want kids, but she doesn't want to kill them, either. Of course, this is where it all goes to hell in a handbasket. Kiyo is very forceful in telling her to abort her babies. We find out that Kiyo is still very much loyal to Maiwann, who is so terrified of the prophecy that she wants Eugenie killed if she won't abort her unborn babies.
Are you freaking kidding me? So after all this time, after Eugenie breaks Dorian's heart time after time, she finds out that the fox-faced jerk she trusted is way more loyal to his ex. And he's willing to kill her. So, in order to save herself, Eugenie must throw herself view spoiler [ at the mercy of Dorian. Does Dorian kick her out? Does Dorian yell at her? Dorian takes her in and offers to adopt her unborn babies and care for them forever. Of course Eugenie questions his underlying motives.
But at least at this point, Eugenie is safe. Sorry that my rant review is so harsh. I think this book was excellent in terms of character development, plot, cohesiveness and twists and turns, but I can't stand that person Eugenie is becoming.
I think her problem is that she's more upset with herself and her situation than she is with Dorian. From the beginning of this series, she has continually questioned Dorian and refused to give him the benefit of the doubt.
At every turn, Kiyo has let her down, yet she continues to trust him blindly. At this point, I hate to say it, but Eugenie is getting exactly what she deserves. View all comments. Nov 28, Ferdy rated it it was ok Shelves: Spoilers -I did find this entertaining, I was hooked from the beginning until the end but I couldn't rate this higher because I hated the heroine with a burning passion — not because she turned out to be a cheater, not because she was dumb but because she let people treat her rubbish - Kiyo, Roland, her mum, that freeloader Tim and everyone in between.
Seriously, Eugenie has the worst parents ever — what kind of father wouldn Spoilers -I did find this entertaining, I was hooked from the beginning until the end but I couldn't rate this higher because I hated the heroine with a burning passion — not because she turned out to be a cheater, not because she was dumb but because she let people treat her rubbish - Kiyo, Roland, her mum, that freeloader Tim and everyone in between.
Seriously, Eugenie has the worst parents ever — what kind of father wouldn't want to kill the guy that repeatedly raped their daughter? I think if Eugenie was his real daughter he wouldn't have hesitated killing her rapist.
I can't believe her mum and Roland ignored Eugenine and treated her like shit after she was kidnapped and raped for weeks - Where was the unconditional love and support? What pissed me off more was Eugenie didn't call them out on their behaviour or act like they were being dicks — no, she thought it was ok for her parents to treat her so atrociously, when she so desperately needed looking after. Sure, she didn't tell Roland about what she was in the Otherworld, but what did he expect when she knew how he would react.
And so what if she hid the truth, any other parent would put that aside to make sure their daughter was ok after her rape, they wouldn't tell her to fuck off and act like she was the anti christ..
WTF sort of parents were they? All the way through I was waiting for Eugenie to give them a verbal smack down about abandoning her when she needed them most — but no, she was the one who was groveling and begging for forgiveness.. Her parents attitude pissed me off more than anything else in this book. I don't know why she was so shocked by what he did. I don't have any sympathy for Dorian, he knew Eugenie would be pissed with him and possibly dump him — but he did it anyway because he wanted power more than he wanted Eugenie.
