Upon reading the first chapter of the book, I found it to be very depressing and to be honest I didn't even want to continue reading it. There was nothing in this book that was the least bit happy or hopeful. It was just one bad circumstance after another. I found it hard to relate to any of the characters or to sympathize with them. It was a very dark and sad story. I am used to reading some "darker" type of books, but this went too far for me.
The Dark Monk-
This book started almost exactly the same as the first book... depressing and violent. It was very sad and dark and I didn't want to continue reading it. It wasn't pleasant to read.
