You will love this book! A must read...The start to the best series I have read this year.

This book is completely different to anything you have ever read. Be prepared to get the rest of the books in the series because you will not be able to stop, sleep or talk about anything else!! The more you read the deeper you will sink into the so complex and layered ...
This book is completely different to anything you have ever read. Be prepared to get the rest of the books in the series because you will not be able to stop, sleep or talk about anything else!! The more you read the deeper you will sink into the so complex and layered world of Dante.

Just kinda uh. Skip unless it's free.

I know everyone is raving about this book and how intense it is, etc. I have to say, it was one of the most boring and underdeveloped books I've ever read. The main character, Dante, is the exact opposite of endearing. I spent the whole time reading it wishing he'd just figure it out already. In any other book, Dante's character would have been a villain. His bad parts were overplayed and his good parts were barely touched on. We got no understanding of why the plots were happening until the end of the book, and by then, I just didn't really care anymore. I wanted it over with.
The book throws random characters around like playing cards and we don't get to meet half of them.

I just didn't find enough intrigue in the unanswered questions to come back and read the rest of the series.

The only reason I gave this 2 stars instead of 1 is that the female lead, Heather Wallace, was an interesting character.

    Not Bad

    Well, I finished it in one day, so that must say something about how much I enjoyed the book.

    While I thought some things were a bit over explained, like smells and the switching of POV's where a bit much. It wasn't horrible. I will read the next book I'm just not in any hurry.

    Decent Story

    The main characters are well developed. The plot is interesting. I was not totally in love with the book, but I would recommend it. I will probably read the next one. The first book in her other series was way better.
