CI love this book. I couldn't put it down. I loved the relationship between Sonny and Kelley, though I don't much like Kelly (I adore Sonny, though).
Character development was pretty good, but not the best, and many of the minor characters were too minor, if that makes sense. I would have liked to have gotten more of a sense of their characters, especially Sonny's friend.
One thing that bothered me was how Kelley seemed to notice no one but herself. She is way too self absorbed, which made it hard for me to like her character.
The plot itself wasn't that amazing, but the emotional turmoil was entertaining enough, and the ending, though there is another book coming out, was cute and satisfying, even thought it kind of leaves you hanging a bit....more

I have some major issues with it, though. 1. Donia suddenly has a complete personality change. Her stabbing Aislinn seemed out of character. I mean, sure Aislinn's the Summer Queen with Keenan, the guy she loves, but really?? That made me not like her anymore, even though I don't exactly like Aislinn. 2. Seth. I don't like him. He's annoying, boring, and complains a lot. Him becoming a faerie...?? Where's that going to go? 3. Keenan...HE HAS NO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. He stays the same throughout the series. Will he never improve? Or at least change in SOME way?? 4. Niall. Whoa. Talk about ANOTHER personality change. Suddenly Nial is evil? WHAT? Sure, he's the king of the Dark Court now. So? Suddenly he's a different person? And why is he so obsessed with Seth? I find that weird. Is Niall bi-sexual or something? Does he LIKE Seth? I never understood that. I don't have anything against gay characters, but when I have no idea if they're gay or not because it isn't clear..?? Nope. Was Irial in love with Niall? Never got that either. Niall AND Irial loved Leslie, right? But didn't they also love each other? The book makes no sense. 5. Sorcha. Why? I found her to be boring and annoying. Her only purpose was to turn Seth into a faerie--the whole thing about her being his mother was also quite odd. 6. I don't like a single one of the characters, and wouldn't care if they all died horrible deaths. Which is not good, shockingly.
It was a fast read, and enjoyable in a way...sort of like fast food. But I wouldn't read it again, or think about it when I wasn't reading it....more
Definitely the best book in the series. The characters are great, well developed, and all have their own unique personalities. When reading this, I waDefinitely the best book in the series. The characters are great, well developed, and all have their own unique personalities. When reading this, I was really drawn into the story with Rose, and totally felt her pain. There are definitely some shocking moments in this one, and it'll keep you guessing up until the end. It's got tons of action, but not so much that you lose out on the emotions of the characters.
I thought it was great how Rose got partnered with Christian instead of Lissa (I love Christian). It really made for some funny moments. Plus, it got me away from Lissa, whom (sorry, but it's true) I hate. She is such a selfish, sel-centered character...yuck. And we also get more of Adrian, who intrigues me, because I don't know what to think of him yet, despite how genuine he seems in this book.
Richelle Mead doesn't stray away from grit or, to be blunt, heartbreak. There aren't always happy endings or middles with her.
There were quite a few different plot lines going on, far different from the first two, but it wasn't confusing or messy in any way. You really can't go wrong with this series, and this one just sets the bar even higher. ...more
