    Very Unique

    The Cupid War is a very unique novel with a quirky cast of characters and an unusual plot. While it wasn't everything I was hoping for, it was still a fun read.

    The novel starts off in a very dark place with Fallon wanting to kill himself. After his accidental death, Fallon is thrown into the life of a Cupid, someone who must help people fall in love, a task he's not all to happy with. He soon discovers that without Cupids in the world, dark entities called Suicides would destroy the world of love. Part of his job is to make sure that doesn't happen.

    At times Fallon can be quite unlikable, I think this has more to do with his circumstance then attitude but at times I felt he was too much of a smart mouth. Since the novel jumps ahead several times, it really feels as though Fallon masters his cupid training very fast and I actually would have preferred to see more of how he developed those skills.

    I really enjoyed the character of Trina. I like how she has a bit of an attitude like Fallon but isn't as abrasive. My favorite parts of the novel were her and Fallon's interactions. The fact that she can hear him and the others Cupids allows for some really funny banter between the two.

    Although I felt the plot was a bit too obvious, I still found it fun to read. I think the subject matter might turn some people off but I give the author a lot of credit for trying to tackle an issue which is quite sensitive to a lot of people. I think its lovely to think of a world where depression can be cause/explained by a supernatural creature.

    The ending to the novel was surprisingly sweet and I'm glad the author tied up all the loose ends. The Cupid War is a quick, easy read for anyone looking for something a little bit funny, a little bit dark and a little bit different.
