Summary (from Goodreads.com)Collapse )

Why I Read It: Kobo was having a Boxing Day sale so I browsed what titles they were discounting and came across this for $1.99 CAN. Since its release in 2009, I've heard a lot of good things about this series (especially this first installment), so I picked it up and read a big chunk before my e-reader went and died on me.

REVIEW: possible spoilersCollapse )

Final Judgment: I feel like this review has just been one long rant, so I want to stress that I did not HATE this book. I just really wanted to love it and I'm kind of bitter because of my disappointment. I did manage to read it until the very end though, so that's gotta mean something, right? At the end of the day though, would I recommend this book? Probably not... not unless you were a hardcore fan of YA paranormal romance. Am I going to read the rest of the series? Maayyybbeeee, though probably not. From reviews that I've read of the second novel in the series, Beautiful Darkness is even slower than this one, and I already found THIS book really slow. So, all in all, it just wasn't for me.

Cover Commentary: I like it, though I wouldn't say it's anything special. I do really like the title font though.
