The same scene plays out over and over and over again - Tessa, Jem & Will. Whoa is me. Whos is Jem. Whoa is Will. We are all 17 pretending to be great romantics, great wordsmiths and great martyrs. I started rooting for the Magister.
With constant quotes and references to "classic literature", the author tries to ride piggy back on Dickens' and Bronte works but falls completely flat. This is a case of not knowing (or caring) who your real audience is. If I had to guess, I'd say the author was given more creative freedom with this series because of the success of other series. Turn back!
