So the book starts off, with Ethan wondering what the hell went wrong with him and Lena. Lena doesn't know what to do, Macon has died and she is lost. So she hooks up with Ridley, a Dark Caster, and John Breed, an Incubus/Mortal/Caster whatchamathingy (we don't know exactly. He's a cross breed). Ethan wants to get Lena back, but every time he sees her, she runs away, or Liv's with him, and Lena is just plain jealous of Liv.
Okay, I'll admit it. Lena was not good throughout this book. I wanted to scream at her "What is going through your mind? Would you stop treating Ethan like garbage? What is with your attitude/change of heart?" The rest of them weren't bad, except maybe for those parts where I felt like yelling at Ethan for letting Lena treat him like dirt on her shoe, and then always obsessing/going after her when she made it very hard for him, basically dumped him, and made it pretty darn clear she was going Dark. But I guess that's love for you.
I liked Ridley and Link more than Ethan and Lena, to be honest. Link was funny and lighthearted, which is just what you need when all the forces of Darkness are coming after you, and Ridley was an enigma. First she was bad, then she was good, and I just liked her because she was actually better than Lena, I think. Anyway. You'd understand if you read the book. I mean, probably. I dunno if you'd follow my train of thought.
I liked the ending. It made me quite interested to read the next book, not for Ethan and Lena, because it was a bit obvious that they were just going to be another couple, obsessing over each other, but because of Link and Ridley, two completely different people than what they were at the start of the book (Literally). It was an interesting twist.
So, to sum it up, this wasn't a bad book that made me want to throw up/throw the book in the trash/hide it behind a shelf in the library so no one could read it, but I wasn't that impressed either. It was just a bit slow, which was a problem I found in the last book as well. I will get the next book, because the part at the end made me interested to see what would happen next.
