When I first heard about this book I was a bit hesitant about buying and reading it only because it was about werewolves! I mean I loved the whole idea of a werewolf who changes it's form depending on the temperature, but I was really tired of all the talk about vampires and werewolves. Eventually my curiosity got the best of me and I gave in! I really wanted to like this book, so when I wasn't hooked halfway in, I kept reading and telling myself it was gonna get better! But it was so slow paced that it felt like a drag just reading it! I am ashamed to say I couldn't even finish the book; it was horrible.. And I always finish every book I read even if it doesn't hold my attention! Never again will I have exceptions for books that include vampires or werewolves! Besides The Mortal Instruments of course!
