Honestly Richelle Mead's works have been some of my favorite. I'm a little disappointed by this spin off though. It 's like she stretches everything out so they are long books but not too much every really happened this time. I mean I understand the whole suspense thing but if I can put the book down for a couple days or weeks then something is wrong. I still love the characters and that Sydney is finally coming into her own being. I'm sure glade shes getting stronger or i would be getting bored. The end of the book did kind of make me wanna smack my head. Probably because all the potential problems but I'm afraid part of it is that now how is any fun gonna happy? Is any or is it just going to drag on?
