ARC Review: A Bargain of Blood and Gold by Kristin Jacques

A Bargain of Blood & Gold

Rating: 1 out of 5.

This one looked interesting and at first the story moved at a decent clip. I didn’t much like the writing style, but I thought I could ignore that in favor of a good story. It seemed like a light romance with a backdrop of murder.

And then it got…. weird. The characters became strange and the plot took a dive toward horror. It was uncomfortable to read. Once Stebbins and his off-putting and strange behavior got introduced it felt like a bit of a caricature of cobbled-together symptoms of a mental illness. That’s a major nope for me and it was the last straw that had me putting this down.

*Thanks to NetGalley and City Owl Press for providing an e-arc for review.
