YES, IT was JUST O..K.. Finally! after eons of laboriously reading this book, I’m done! I’m not even sure I’ll read the next one. Anyway, the story kinda grow out of me, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. lol. No offense to the authors. There are many reasons why I don’t like this: 1. Zoey is kinda selfish, having chosen to stay in the island than face reality..she just faced her fears halfway on the book 2. Stevie rae- can’t even begin to imagine the relationship she had with Rephaim. *shudders*. I know, i know, i’m supposed to learn the outside is not the basis of blah2x..STILL. 3. I grew tired of the corny way it was written..the childish lines..the story was narrated in a way that they wanted you to know everything. NO secrets for the readers. while I appreciate this, but I also want that sense of mystery. not one is left. I can’t even specifically explain why it was corny, it was just. 4. I don’t understand the whole point of everythng. and anyway, the story’s beliefs is against mine, so I won’t read it anymore. I just finished reading this because an online buddy loved some parts of it. And I have to admit, it’s because of Stark. just love him! anyway, also! i dn’t know about the authors (in general, the whole populace), why guys need to be tormented and their soul be controlled by other whatever( spoiler: Stark sharing his whatever with Kalona..I just remembered Jace from TMI, him sharing whatever with Sebastian, and Lilith having controlled him at one point). I can no longer take it! grr.
