Dark Waltz (Praestani, #1) - A.M. Hargrove Got halfway but just never connected with the main character Liasare. The world seemed interesting and Jurek and his crew intrigued me but Liasare came off very immature. Throwing tantrums and acting badass but in reality not knowing what the hell she was doing and needing to be rescued. I don't care how many F-bombs you throw, it doesn't make you tough. Also didn't see what was making all the men crazy over her. No personality but pretty. Guess that's all it takes. Overall, just didn't care enough to continue. Sorry Jurek, I did try,
