I say almost because I liked so much about this book, but I didn't love, love it. I still gave it mostly four stars because I enjoyed the read. I was just very underwhelmed by the female lead. Evie is great in so many ways, but there is something about her that just misses the mark for me. She could be stronger. She could be A LOT smarter. She could be a great example to youg readers. She could be, and has the potential to be, so many great things...but she just isn't. I find myself reading this series because of the main male leads, and the extreme creativity of the world Cole has created. (It's refreshingly fantastic! And another reason I gave it four stars.) But, I don't want to read a YA book for the secondary characters and the undoubtedly creative, refreshing world. Those are a great bonus, but I want to read a YA book because the main female is dynamic, strong, and a great example for readers to be inspired by. In the end, I liked this series, in spite of Evie.
