Not what I expected

That fairly sums up my feelings and I am sad to say that. I loved Kade's Ghost and Goth series. Tight plotting, great characters, etc. I just didn't get that here. It probably isn't fair of me to compare that series to this one, even if it is the same author, because the subject is different, but I did expect to have a plot that would pull me in and this didn't meet my expectations in any way. Mostly, I have to admit, I was bored. Perhaps it takes place too much in Ariane's head, her memory of this or her thought about the Rules and not breaking them.
And the twist . . . for me, personally, that didn't work, because I suspected it all along. Hiding in plain sight? I truly thought that begged my ability to suspend disbelief and stretched it to the limit.
So, those are my objections.
But all of that aside, there is an interesting story here. There is growth from the characters, both Ariane and Zane, more self-awareness of who they are or, perhaps more correctly, of who they want to be.
So, while not completely satisfied, I will sign on for the next book in the series and hope it improves.
