I did not remember Elena being this stupid in the first book! She's practically useless for most of this book. (view spoiler) I won't even mention her insecurity issues with Clay especially.

It's not just her, either. What can I possibly say about Sandra..? (view spoiler)

Finishing this book was painful. There was a whole lot of nothing happening for long intervals and some things had no reason for happening (and not in a good 'this is life, bad things happen' kind of way). The main "bad guy" was like a half-witted hormonal spoiled teenager who was supposedly intelligent but showed no evidence of the fact anywhere in the story and whose sadistic tendencies were out-staged only by those of his employees.

The only redeeming character is Jeremy, who was the voice of logic in the chaos and maybe Adam, who displayed a bit of humor. Xavier might have been an interesting character but we don't get to see all that much of him. Also, the sorcerer's identity was a surprise which is a good thing considering that I'd forgotten all about him and his "importance" up until his appearance.

All in all, I did not enjoy this book and I'm probably not going to read the next in the series.
