Long story short it's a typical 'girl moves to new town after mysterious incident' story except the characters, like her friend Kayla or her cousin Alex, weren't really that well developed as I'd've liked them to be and John(the love interest and death diety) isn't really explained at all. Like we don't know why he's a death diety, he and Pierce never seriously talk unless it's arguing and the most we learn about him is from a freaky cemetery groundskeeper! The story seemed to catch up to itself pretty quickly at the end, like one minute it's pretty ordinary(like most of the rest of the book) but not boring and the next minute in like the last 15 pages all is revealed out of the blue.
On a more positive note Pierce was a great main character because she was pretty realistic, the storyline was unexpected and we don't get all the facts at once but they're sort of spread out throughout.
It wasn't what I expected and I don't know if that was a good thing or not.
Liked the idea
Good set-up for next book at end
