Review: Angelfire

Title: Angelfire
Author: Courtney Allison Moulton
Release Date: February 15th, 2011
Series: Angelfire #1
Number of Pages: 453
Publisher: HarperCollins
Source: Bought
This debut, the first novel in a trilogy, is achingly romantic, terrifying, and filled with blistering action.
When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul.
A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once.
While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

I had heard many great reviews about this book, so I really had to pick it up and read it. I was really happy about finally reading it. It was really good. I wasn’t disappointed.

The story was good. I just couldn’t put the book down once I started. I just found it so entertaining. It was funny and I just loved it. The ending was really good, and made me really excited for the sequel. I just can’t wait to read what will happen next.

The characters were really good. Ellie is just really believable to me. She doesn’t just accept whatever she is told about her power and her destiny like some characters seem to do. She is a really normal teenager. Well, except for all the rich thingy. That’s the only thing that annoyed me. Still, I adore Ellie. Then, there’s Will! I completely adore Will. He is just such a nice guy, and OMG I can’t believe that he is that into protecting Ellie. It is kind of cute, kind of creepy, but I loved it anyway.

I really can’t wait to read more from Courtney. It is a really good Debut, and she is an amazing author that I will happily read again and again.

I would give this book a good 4.5/5. If you haven’t read it yet, you should!

Review: Queen of all the Earth

Title: Queens of all the Earth
Author: Hannah Sternberg
Release Date: June 15th, 2011
Series: No
Number of Pages: 160
Publisher: Bancroft Press
Source: NetGalley
As her freshman classmates move into dorms at Cornell University, Olivia Somerset suffers a nervous breakdown. When months of coaxing and analyzing fail to rouse Olivia from her stupor, big sister Miranda decides the sisters should fly off to Barcelona for some "vacation therapy."
When a mistake at their Barcelona hostel leaves the Somersets in a large co-ed dorm room, Olivia and Miranda are saved by kindly Mr. Brown and his son Greg, who happily volunteer to surrender their private room. But while Olivia feels an instant connection with brooding Greg Brown, Miranda sides with fellow guest and cocky American travel writer Lenny:
The Browns are just plain weird, and must be avoided at all costs.

In the midst of urbane Peruvian priests-in-training and Scottish soccer fans, from the shops of La Rambla to the waters of the Mediterranean to the soaring heights of Montjuic, Miranda works to protect her still-fragile sister while Olivia struggles to understand her burgeoning adulthood, her feelings for Greg, and the fear that makes the next step in her life so impossible to take.
Inspired by E. M. Forster's classic novel A Room with a View, debut author Hannah Sternberg's Queens of All the Earth is a poetic journey of young love and self-awakening set against the beauty of Catalonia. Teenagers and adults alike will be riveted and moved by this coming-of-age novel about the conflicting hearts and minds of two very different sisters.

It was quite difficult for me to write this review. I was unsure what to write.

First of all, I must say that the plot disappointed me. I just thought wasn’t that much happening. There was nothing that really held my attention, nothing that captivated me. I just felt like I was reading about someone’s trip to Barcelona, a normal trip. The ending was okay, a happy ending for the characters. It fitted well with the story, but it didn’t blow me away.

The characters were okay. I could see them being real, I could imagine myself meeting them, but I feel like she could have given us more about them. I felt like something was missing. Olivia was a great girl, Greg a nice boy, but nothing else really stood out from the characters. (Except, of course, the annoying side of Lenny.)

The writing was probably the best thing about this story. I love how she writes, I love the descriptions. It is really one of the main reasons I could go through that book like I did.

Overall, it is a short book, nicely written. Yet, I still feel like there was something missing from it, some action perhaps. I wish she could have written something longer; to make it seems more complete.

ABEA: Introduction

Here's a little introduction, for those of you who don't know who I am!

Twitter: @emdelorme

Who am I? I’m a 19 years old student, who’s turning 20 soon! I’m in love with books, music and arts. I can’t live without coffee, that’s for sure. I’m starting university in the fall… What else would you like to know? I'm from Montreal, and I mostly speak French at home. That's why my English in far from perfect. 

Book love: Of course, I’m a YA lover, as you can see on my blog, but I also enjoy Philip Kerr’s novel, Charlaine Harris and many other adult novels. I simply prefer YA. I don’t usually give up on books, but I may take a break from it if I’m in a book funk.

Most anticipated books of 2011? Supernaturally by Kiersten White or Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare.

Reading. Where? I read everywhere, and I'll probably chck the ABEA everywhere. I just got myself an Iphone (a great gift from me to me with love for surviving college.) which will help me stay connected everywhere. Yet, my favorite place is certainly in my bed. There is no better place to enjoy a great book. With a good cup of coffee? That's what I call paradise!

That’s me! If you want to know more, there’s the About Me page that can help you, or you can simply ask me questions, I will gladly answer them!

In My Mailbox 11

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi from  the Story Siren

Here is what I got this week!

I only got two books because I bought four from the Book Depository that have not received yet. So her what I got:

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

I would also like to take the time to apologize for not posting a lot in the last few days. I have been sick, working and trying to get everything done now that school is over. Now I’m back! I have one week left of work, then I’ll be on vacation for two weeks. Not that I’m going anywhere. I’ll simply be enjoying the freedom of being able to do whatever I want, without having to take in consideration my job.

Now, what did you get this week?

Review: Mercy

Title: Mercy
Author: Rebecca Lim
Release Date: May 17th, 2011
Series: Mercy #1
Number of Pages: 288
Publisher: Hyperion Book
Source: NetGalley
Mercy in an exile from heaven with shattered memories of who she used to be. She's doomed to "wake" repeatedly on earth in a new body, each time assuming a new life. During the day she survives in the human world on instinct and at night her dreams are haunted by her lost love, who pleads with her to find him. 

But this time is different. When Mercy wakes up she meets Ryan, an eighteen-year-old reeling from the loss of his twin sister, Lauren, who was kidnapped two years ago. Only Mercy and Ryan believe his sister is still alive. For the first time since she can remember, Mercy has a purpose: she can help. So she doesn't understand why the man in her dreams cautions her not to interfere. But as Ryan and Mercy come closer to solving the mystery of Lauren's disappearance, danger looms just one step behind. 

Will Mercy be able to harness her extraordinary power in time?

The first in a dazzling new series, Mercy masterfully weaves romance, mystery and the supernatural into a spell-binding tale that readers will devour.
I had heard little about this book, before picking it up and reading it. I was nicely surprised about this book, even thought it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting.

The plot is interesting, but it has a slow pace. It wasn’t a bad thing. I enjoy taking the time to really get into the story, and by doing do, I was able to understand more of the character. The story may be about a heaven cast out, yet you can relate to her. After all, aren’t we as teenagers looking for who we really are? Mercy is seeking the truth about her identity, and she is tempted while doing so by the “dark side” (if you want to call it that).  The ending was beautiful and sad, but I loved it. I’m really excited about the sequel.

I loved Mercy. She really is my favorite character in this book. She is trying to do the best she can to help someone she doesn’t really know, even if the one “person” she knows and love tells her not to do so. She is looking for who she is, yet she isn’t tempted by the easy way out of everything. She is reading to fight for what she thing is right. I like that in a character. What I loved most about her is that she isn’t perfect. A perfect character really annoys me. She makes mistakes like everyone. Ryan is an amazing brother. He doesn’t want to give up on his sister, even if everyone has. If I had a brother, I wish he could be half as devoted to his sister as Ryan was.

Rebecca Lim has found in me a new fan of her books. I really can’t wait to get my hand on the sequel.

A perfect book if you’re looking for a beautiful and slow book. Sometime it is nice to enjoy a good story instead of just rushing through it to know the end.

Review: Dead Reckoning

Title: Dead Reckoning                       
Author: Charlaine Harris
Release Date: May 3rd, 2011
Series: Sookie Stackhouse #11
Number of Pages: 325
Publisher: Ace Book
Source: Bought
With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board . ..

I really like the Sookie Stackhouse. It’s a series that has everything I could like, love, action, humor, and more! I just can’t not enjoy.

The story is a nice continuation of the series. There is always something going on. I’m always laughing when I read these books. Still, I must say that it is not as good as the first ones. I kind of enjoy the TV series a little more now than the book (Shame on me, I know, but good what can I say. Vampire Eric makes the show for me!) The ending is good, like always. It makes me want to read the next one so badly. This series is simply addicting to me. If you enjoyed the series, you will like this one, because it is like the rest of the books: Funny, captivating and enjoyable.

What can I say about the characters… I want a vampire like vampire Eric? God, I’m completely Team Eric, especially if you look at the character in the TV show. Alexander Skarsgård anyone? I just can’t resist. Yes, he can be an ass sometimes, but come on, can you really resist him? Sookie gets on my nerves sometimes, but I still like her as a main character. We also see Alcide a little in the book, and I have to say I was happy to see him back, even if it was only for a couple of pages. Pam is my favorite female character of the book. She makes me laugh so hard! She's so funny, even if she doesn’t want to be funny. I adore her. If I had to have a vampire friend, I would want her. At least with her, I would know that she’s honest…(sometimes too honest, but still, I love her!)

I enjoy Charlaine Harris writing style, but honestly, I really want to read more from her. I want to read new characters from her. Yes, I’ll be sad when the series comes to an end, but I want something new. We have been with Sookie for a while, I’m just curious for more.

Honestly, if you love this series, you’ll enjoy the eleventh book of the series. Still, tell me if you hope that the series will go one forever, or if like me, you kind of want to see the end of it. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the series anymore; I simply want the series to end on a high note. I don’t want to read the last book when I’m completely bored with Sookie.

I would give it a 4/5, because I absolutely love this series, and this book is a nice addition to it.

What do you think?

In My Mailbox 10

Yeah! I'm back! After having forgotten to do my IMM for the last two weeks, I'm back! I'm done with school, so I'm really happy. I got a couple of ooks during the last three weeks, but not so many because I didn't want to spend most of my time reading instead of doing my homeworks.

Here is what I got:

The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter (Review Here)
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (Review Here)
Field Gray by Philip Kerr

Review: Linger

Title: Linger
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Release Date: July 13th, 2010
Series: The Wolves of Mercy Fall #2
Number of Pages: 362
Publisher: Scholastic
Source: Bought
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.  Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack.  And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget.

Ahh Linger. A book I was really excited to read because I had enjoyed Shiver. Yet, I was really disappointed with this one. It just didn’t live up to my expectations.

First, the story was really slow. I couldn’t get into the story. It was painful by moment. At some point, I just wanted to get over with it, so I could start a new book. I just wished the real plot could have started earlier. It took too long before something really happened. The best part of the plot was the ending, which I think was interesting. It made me interested in knowing what would happen next. It’s probably the main reason why I will read Forever.

Some of the characters I really liked, some not so much. I like Sam. He is probably my favorite character of this series. Grace just always acted like she couldn’t live without Sam, which really got on my nerves. She just acted so weak sometime. Isabel can be a hell of a B****. Cole was such an ass. I understand that he wants to forget, but really, does he have to act like he does all the time? Arg. Really didn’t like him. Don’t try to make us feel bad about your life dude.

I think Maggie Stiefvater writes beautifully. Yet, in this book, one thing really annoyed the heck out of me: The Four Points of View. Four is way too much. I was lost every time I picked my book after taking a break of reading. Not fun. I really hope forever doesn’t have that many of them.

Overall, I was disappointed. I’m still hoping Forever will be better. 2.5/5

Review: Wings

Title: Wings
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: May 1st, 2009
Series: : Wings #1
Number of Pages: 290
Publisher: Harper Teen
Source: Bought
Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

I had heard a lot of good comments about this book. I was curious about what the story was about, but I ended up slightly disappointed.

First, the story was kind of slow for me. A flower that comes out of her back? Original, but slightly strange. The beginning was really slow. It took me a while before I could really say that I was in the story. Half way through the book, I start enjoying it. The ending was okay, but I had expected something better again.

The characters were okay. Laurel was annoyed most of the time. I just didn’t like her reactions. She just acted too strangely sometimes. David really got on my nerves. I prefer Tam all the way. There just something about him that is so nice, so strong and so perfect. He wants her, that’s for sure. He knows what she really is, where I felt like David really wanted her because she was different. I’m soo team Tam!

The writing was okay. It was easy to read and to follow. It didn’t really make a big impact on my reading, so I can’t really say much about it.

I was disappointed, but I liked it. I want to read what will happen next. I would give this book a 3/5, but I’m really hoping it will get better in Spells.

Review: The Demon Trapper's Daugther

Title: The Demon Trapper’s Daughter
Author: Jana Oliver
Release Date: February 1st, 2011
Series: The Demon Trappers #1
Number of Pages: 340
Publisher: St. Martin”s Griffin
Source: Bought
Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself – and that’s exactly what the demons are counting on…
Seventeen-year-old Riley, the only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper, Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps.  The good news is, with human society seriously disrupted by economic upheaval and Lucifer increasing the number of demons in all major cities, Atlanta’s local Trappers’ Guild needs all the help they can get – even from a girl. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing crush on fellow apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving distressed citizens from foul-mouthed little devils – Grade One Hellspawn only, of course, per the strict rules of the Guild. Life’s about as normal as can be for the average demon-trapping teen.
But then a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood.  And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, sudden tragedy strikes the Trappers’ Guild, spinning Riley down a more dangerous path than she ever could have imagined. As her whole world crashes down around her, who can Riley trust with her heart – and her life?

I bought this book in February, because I knew it was a debut. I didn’t know much about it, so when I ended reading it a couple of days ago, I way nicely surprised.

The story was good. It was captivating and interesting. It was original, but I found it hard to imagine Atlanta like that only in 8 years. I can’t really imagine that. I would have set it a little later, just to make it easier to believe. Still, it was really good. After a couple of pages, I was hooked. The ending is really great, and it opens a door for more, the sequel coming out in a couple of months.

The characters were really great. Riley was fun and believable. I wish I could be friend with her. Her father seems like a really great father, even if we don’t see him much in the book. I like Simon, but I mush say that I find him annoying with his faith. It just seems strange that he believes that much, but he wants to be a trapper. I absolutely love Beck. He is so awesome! I wish I could have a Beck in my life *Sigh*.

I really like Oliver’s writing. I can’t wait to read more from her. I like the dual perspective. It helps us understand the story more, by seeing both Beck’s and Riley’s point of view.

I really enjoy the story. I’m really excited for the sequel. It was the perfect entertaining book to get me through the end of the semester.

This week, I'm waiting for:

Title: Vanish

Series: Firelight #2

To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone. 

Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love? 

In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.
I really liked Firelight! I can't wait to see where the story goes.

Review: Die For Me

Title: Die For Me
Author: Amy Plum
Release Date: May 10th
Series: Revenants #1
Number of Pages: 259
Publisher: HarperTeen
Source: NetGalley
Kate Mercier’s wonderfully normal teenage life comes crashing down when her parents are killed in a car accident. Suddenly, she and her sister, Georgia, are forced to leave everything they’ve ever known in America and move to Paris to live with their grandparents. For Kate, the only way to survive is by sealing off her heart and escaping into the comforting world of books and beautiful art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. He also happens to be one of an elite race of paranormal beings known as revenants—undead creatures who exist to sacrifice themselves over and over again in place of other humans whose time to die has not yet come.
As Kate’s attraction to Vincent grows, she must choose between the shattered life she was trying to rebuild, and the risks of loving again. But when she learns that her sister has become involved with a group of evil revenants who exist solely to murder and betray those around them, Kate is thrown into the midst of a centuries-old battle which threatens the lives of everyone she loves.

First of all, can I say that that I absolutely love the new cover? Isn’t gorgeous? I want it on my shelf as soon as I can. Not only is it gorgeous, it is also really good!

When I first started reading this book, I was a little skeptical. I just wasn’t sure were it was going. After a couple of pages, I was getting deeper and deeper into the story, to the point where I ended up staying up really late to finish it. (2am is never a good time to go to bed when you have to go to school really early in the morning. Bad idea.) Yet, I don’t regret my really short night, because it was good. The ending makes me curious for more, even thought she doesn’t leave us with a mean cliffhanger. I still want to know what will happen with Kate and Vincent. My only problem with the story honestly was that it was to short. I wanted more! I wish there had been at least 50 more pages, at least to completely satisfy me. I guess I’ll have to wait for the next one instead.

The characters at first didn’t click with me. Yet, the more I read, the more I ended up liking them. Kate is a really great character, yet I wish she had freaked out a little more when she learned what Vincent was. If it had been me, I would have freaked out way more, probably using a few swear to make my point. Vincent is great, but I liked Jules more. I love his flirty side with Kate. He always makes me smile. I didn’t really like Georgia, simply because she seemed a little full of herself at some points.

I really liked Plum’s debut novel. I can’t wait to read more form her, and hopefully, I won’t have to wait that long!

I would give it a 4/5, mainly because I wish it had been longer.

Review: The Magnolia League

Title: The Magnolia League
Author: Katie Crouch
Release Date: May 3rd, 2011
Series: The Magnolia League #1
Number of Pages: 368
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Source: NetGalley
After the death of her free-spirited mother, sixteen-year-old Alex Lee must leave her home in northern California to live with her wealthy grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful, if unwilling, member of the Magnolia League, Savannah's long-standing debutante society. She quickly discovers that the Magnolias have made a pact with a legendary hoodoo family, the Buzzards. The Magnolias enjoy youth, beauty and power. But at what price?

As in her popular adult novels, Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this seductively atmospheric story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.

I was really hoping to enjoy this book. I was really intrigued by the story and the cover, but I just couldn’t get into the book at first. After a while, I ended liking it, but I was disappointed that I didn’t love it.

The story was slow to start, and I just felt like something wasn’t for me. Yet, I can’t really say what exactly. I just couldn’t believe the story. There was simply something that didn’t work for me. Yet I really want to know what will happen next, because the ending left me wondering about what will happen next. The ending was okay, but it didn’t blow me away. There are still a lot of things left unsaid. I can’t wait to discover them.

The characters were too cliché at first, but after a while, I learn to like them. Alex just annoyed me at first. There was something about her that made me cringe. Maybe it is the way she changed her belief quite fast. She is all about the environment and helping the other, but she becomes one of the superficial girl really soon. After a while, you get used to who she is, and I was able to enjoy her story a little. Hayes and Madison were fun characters for me. I liked Hayes, but I find her sometimes just too nice. I felt like she was fake. Madison was simply amazing. She felt real. She was a bitch most of the time, but I liked that she didn’t try to play the friend to Alex imply because she was supposed to. She doesn’t like her at first, and she won’t pretend.

I enjoy Crouch’s writing. It was fun, and I like how she tells the story. I can’t wait to read more books from her.

I would give it a 3/5, because there was something that annoyed me. I felt like it took me a while to really get into the story.

Title: Shattered Souls
Author: Mary Lindsey
Release Date: December 8th, 2011

Lenzi hears voices. She also sees visions--gravestones, floods, a gorgeous guy with steel gray eyes. She knows she must be going crazy, just like her dad did. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't do anything to help, and the voices just keep getting louder, the visions more intense. But when Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, everything makes sense. 

Sort of. 

He tells Lenzi that she's a reincarnated Speaker--someone who can talk to lost souls and help them move on--and that he has been her Protector for centuries. But instead of embracing her abilities, Lenzi struggles between her life as the girlfriend of a sexy musician and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. Yet time is running out; a malevolent spirit has been trying to destroy Lenzi for ages, and he will surely kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon. 

Her choices are clear: Destiny or normalcy. Alden or Zak. Life or death.

It sounds good! I love the cover.

Review: The Reckoning

Wow, I haven't posted in a while. Sorry for that. I only have one week left of school, and a lot of stuff to do. I probably won't post a lot until the 11th, but don't worry, I'll be back. Remember to enter my giveaway here too!

Series: The Darkest Powers #3

Only two weeks ago, life was all too predictable. But that was before I saw my first ghost. Now along with my supernatural friends Tori, Derek, and Simon, I'm on the run from the Edison Group, which genetically altered us as part of their sinister experiment. We're hiding in a safe house that might not be as safe as it seems. We'll be gone soon anyway, back to rescue those we'd left behind and take out the Edison Group . . . or so we hope.

I find it hard to write a review for a sequel. If you haven’t read this series yet, you can read my review for the first one HERE and for the second one HERE.

I’m going to be completely honest… I liked it! This series gets better with every book. I love the story, it keeps me addicted and begging for more. The characters are just so great. I love Chloe. I adore Derek. Simon makes me laugh. Tori is less annoying. I love how the romantic aspect is included, without making it seems fake.

Yet, there is one problem…. WHAT KIND OF ENDING IS THAT? I just don’t think it is the best end she could have given us, simply because it doesn’t seem to tie the loose ends. I was just hoping for a little more closure.

Still, I adore you, Kelley Armstrong. She is an amazing writer, for both Young Adult and Adult. You should definitely check her out.

4/5. Why? Because the ending is missing something. There are too many unanswered questions to really satisfy me.
