I bought this book because Steve Spielberg's production company sold it to the CW describing it as "being in the vein of Buffy and The Vampire Diaries..Show More »." It's not. It's really boring, the character is unlikable and the world is uninteresting. It's been a long time since I've struggled to finish listening to a book, but I just couldn't bring myself to care about what happened. Definitely won't be reading the next installment.
Hummm I have been listening to some young adult books lately and they have been great. This one is a good story, but I think it is not one that cross..Show More »es over to adults as well as some. With that said....the heroine of this story was so freakin annoying! LOL It might be because a lot of teenagers are annoying, and she is an annoying teenager. So even though the narrator is great and the author has created a nice world, I will probably not purchase the 2nd book, mainly because you should probably not want to just shake the *&%@ out of the heroine throughout the book! She had so much impassioned, overwrought, impetuous and dramatic turmoil! :) (can you picture me swooning with my wrist braced against my forehead?) This is a great book for young adults, very young adults.
