Really, I should have given this book 3 or 3 1/2 stars, not 4, but I just enjoyed it too much!

I would give it 3 stars for the writing itself - it's not bad, just very dull and flat, and a bit melodramatic at times. It's filled with modern no-no's, like abundant telling instead of showing, "head-hopping" with the point of view within a scene or even a paragraph, and very little character development.
