It took me a really long time to get into this book. Quite honestly I didn't start enjoying myself until halfway through....when the action started. Up until then it was character building, which is fine, but I just didn't find that the writing pulled me in like I hoped it would.If I could, I would give this book 3.5 stars. I decided to round up bc the last half of the book more then made up for the snooze fest that was the first half.I see that this isn't classified as a series yet, but I seriously hope that the author writes a second book. It didn't necessarily leave off at a cliffhanger, but several of the storylines were left open. I can't wait to see where she goes with them.
