If you know you are writing a trilogy, why would you not wrap up your story. Instead we were introduced to new characters, new relationships were introduced, and the majority of them were left hanging. What happens with Miriam and Chris? Who and when will turn Pheobe? Will Diana live forever with her new found powers? What happens with Matthews siblings that they keep mentioning but don't always introduce? How was the first vampire made? If Ashmole was made of creature skin and hair, how did new pages appear when Diana was reading it, and who's skin was it? Did Aunt Sarah hook up with Nathaniel's mom? Will Matthew watch his children grow old and die, continuing his immortal torture of losing those he loves? Will he kill himself after they are all gone? The list goes on and on.
It was a beautifully written story about love and loss. The ending was predictable early on, but I still couldn't put it down. As soon as it was finished, I immediately wanted to start it over again. Matt and Finn are so easy to fall in love with, even with all of their flaws. And finally, a book written about a smart female lead, who actually sounds and acts smart.
The story is just as good as the first book. I love hearing more of Noel's side of things, BUT............
Why would they choose this narrator?!?! The character is supposed to be a 22 year old Rock God, but he sounds like the What-a-Burger commercial guy. I don't want to hear a grandpa talk about their intimate places. EW! I'm very torn on whether or not I can finish the series since he narrates part of book 2. This really gives me the creeps.
Allen Steele shouldn't read for characters younger than 45 years old, at the very least!!!!
