3.5 stars. I'm getting really attached to the characters in this series. They're all so.. loveable. Although I love the characters, the plot seemed to be lacking a bit. I'm used to sitting on the edge of my seat when reading Mead's writing, but this series just doesn't do that for me. I'm not saying that the plot is bad, but it could use some more excitement. I do like this series enough to read them all, though. Now onto the next book (although I'm not sure how I'll like it... seeing as it got spoiled >.>).
