Just finished the novel, and I must say....wow. Wow in a good way. I liked the point-of-view changes between the three friends. It went 3rd person for rebellious Janna and the shy Sione. Then it went 1st person for logical, sporty Keri back and forth. I found it an interesting mystery mixed with the paranormal (kinda like a YA version of The Wicker Man). I liked how all the characters developed and grew over the story and moved past their self-doubts and pain for their losses. I also found it interesting that the characters weren't flat-out good or evil. Even the worst (antagonistic) character had reasons for the actions in the story, and let overzealousness take over. The characters had a mission, but they knew the consequences and weighed them out.
