This book was a nice refresher after the Twilight series (which I wasn't completely satisfied with). The writers style was great, and you truly feel like you're in her shoes throughout the book. Though it does take a while for the story to start giving you the pieces to start putting the big-picture puzzle together and find out exactly WHAT is going on, it goes along with you truly feeling as left out as Luce is and eager to figure out what's going on. I actually had to stop 10 pages before the end because I was so frustrated I had just gotten a grasp of the events and why they were happening, and I knew there was NO WAY they could wrap it up in that short amount of time. Then I found out there's a book two coming out, and I was happy again! Overall, a good book and a great read.
