Why Kimberly, why? Why is this book about RafeRafeRafe? Why couldn’t you have started another series if you wanted to tell his story, instead of just making him pretty much the leading character of The Last Echo, when it should have been all about Violet?? WHYYY? This was one of my favorite series! And now it’s ruined, ruined, ruined!! Damn you “Third Book In A Series Curse”, damn you!!! I never thought that a The Body Finder novel could ever bore me to tears, but whenever Rafe was in the scene my eyes would begin to roll uncontrollably and I just wanted it to be over soon, because I REALLY COULDN’T CARE LESS about this infuriating, meddlesome, oppressive jerk, and it made me sick every time Violet started blushing because he was near. Really? Really, Violet? This isn’t you, and I still feel ashamed by your actions and thoughts! The only thing that I actually enjoyed in the book was the Collector -- and his chapters. They were creepy, they were scary, they were believable, they were awesome. But EVERYTHING ELSE: RUINED! Where are the cute, perfect, heart melting Violet and Jay moments? Where are the funny Chelsea, Jules & Claire scenes? Where is everything that used to make this series stand out from all the other YA crap? I just feel like crying, because THIS BOOK IS LIKE A SLAP IN MY FACE!
Oh, and I will NOT be reading the next one! Just thinking about it makes me sick! SICK! >___>

Turns out the secret wasn’t *that* big of a deal, but I enjoyed this book nonetheless. I really liked the hero, Arthur Kipps, and in the end my heart ached for him. I’ll probably read something else by this author one day, because I enjoyed her writing style, and the way she managed to keep the mystery going throughout the whole 200 pages. Can’t wait to see the movie! ;D
