I actually liked this book, which surprised me. Id read the reviews--many commenting how this was another Gossip Girl, just historical. And how the characters weren't likable. Then I'd read a small excerpt.

I'd give this book a solid Grade B. It worked for me. The characters, the story, the way it was told really worked. It surprised me, becuase I was expecting not to like the characters, but I felt they portrayed and were true to their personalities though the entire story.

It was very similar to the GG style story, but done much better. We know I hate the GG books and that I've been doing a kind of mini-research study on them (including the TV show). I might actually read the sequel when it comes out.

There were a few things style wise that I could pick on, but I find them in most novels so I won't. All in all this wasn't half bad.
