I'll mention that I really love this cover. I know you're not supposed
to judge a book by it's cover but I will admit that was what originally
drew me to this book. The next thing that drew me to the book was
reading the premise, where it states the main character Daire, is being
haunted by disturbing visions. Woohoo! I can never turn down a book with
insane characters in it.
And that's pretty much how the book
starts out, with a little bit of insanity, and it was a perfect way to
get me instantly sucked into this book. However I'd say the beginning
was probably the best of the book in my opinion, but I'm very confident
the majority of readers will not feel the same way. Don't get me wrong
though, I still found the entire book to be quite enjoyable.
liked that this book incorporated hispanic origins and cultures into it,
that was a unique change of pace which I think is almost necessary in a
good paranormal romance, considering just how many YA books are popular
in this genre these days.
I did find Daire to be a little
annoying and childish at times, but on the other hand when I think about
it, if I was in her situation I probably would have reacted in a
similar manner. Also, I felt like it took forever to get to the point of
just what the plot was supposed to be. I found myself asking 'what's
really going on?' for quite a large part of reading this.
ending didn't leave me with that feeling of NEEDING the next book right
now because I have to find out what happens, even though there was one
specific thing mentioned towards the end that had me asking questions,
and wanting to figure out what it means. Because of that and my overall
liking of this book, I do plan on reading the next one in the series
once it comes out.
