Oh my... wow. I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did (considering I was kind of moot on the first book). That was such a fantastic book! Not to mention, Ms. Verday's writing seemed to improve tenfold; it flowed in all the right ways. I LOVED this book. The characters, the plot, everything. It was all I could think about, and when I read it I literally had to pull myself away to sleep and do homework. The ending though- ugh. Such a cliffhanger!! I cannot wait till the next book.
