What did I think? The book is very much all about Faythe, her struggle to grow up and the whole choosing between Marc and Jace. I would have preferred slightly more about the secondary characters – mention of secondary characters felt rushed just to wrap things up. There were parts where I was getting a little sick of Faythe, it was just a little bit too much me me me.
The pace of the book was fast and action packed, it starts with a bang and ends with one, with some really emotional scenes in between.
The book obviously ends with Faythe’s choice, who she chooses is pretty obvious to me in the last few chapters which is why I was dreading the end, hoping desperately that somehow she would choose the other guy instead of whats-his-face – which is probably why I didnt like this as much! I am a big Team [x] fan (like I’m gonna give away the ending!)
On the plus side, whilst everything has been wrapped up (the big bad slain, boyfriend chosen…) there seems to be a lot more to tell and I’ve heard that Rachel Vincent is writing more stories in the ‘verse
