It took me a while to get into this book. I mean it took me about the 225 page mark to really get into it. Once I got into it, I could not put it down. The story was just way too interesting and I’m glad that at least kept me going past my 100 page test. 🙂

 The reason I docked it a star was because of the overload of information. There were times that my eyes were just glazing over. Too much. One of the biggest problems is that her flashbacks came with no warning. Something would be happening and then all the sudden the next thought is the past and it would be confusing. I’m not against having a lot of background information on characters but I would have preferred it right away. As in, when she’s introducing them, she could have easily done this. Having it happen during big moments in the plot was jarring and really stopped the flow of the story. For me anyways, I’m probably in the minority with this. 

What I did like were the actual characters. There are a lot of main characters in this book-6. It might be what made it feel like too much information at times. I loved them all though. They are all complicated and have checkered pasts but grow so much by the end of this book. They really are fantastic. 

I really can’t wait to get my hands on the second book.

  1. Me too! There was even time when I honestly did not think I would finish it as I kept on putting it on hold.. I really liked the second half of this book as it was more action based and things picked up.
