I just couldn't get into Astrid's story. Some situations seemed extremely contrived and I found that bothering me more and more. Plus, with this version (ARC), there were some glaring errors that I hope were picked up in the finished copy.
Astrid leaves the Cloisters originally to bodyguard Cory. Cory has somehow lost her powers to fight unicorns. However, a tip from Neil (Cory's uncle), Astrid takes a side trip to France to try to catch up with Seth Gavriel. They person who stole the innocence from Phillipa, Astrid's beloved cousin. Who is also the Donna of the Cloisters.
Astrid finds not Seth, but Brandt, her ex-boyfriend who set all of this unicorn hunter stuff in motion. And from there, Astrid goes to Gordian (oh no, not them again!) to meet with Martyn Jaeger's estranged wife. Of course, Isabeau has a job for Astrid keeping the Einhorns on the property well-mannered.
Yes, and now we are up to where I stopped reading. I just found it insufferable. Perhaps I'll read the finished version. Hopefully they picked up on the continuity errors.
