it was ok

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series...I thought it was a good story and I was totally invested in the characters. However, I had a hard time finishing this book and was very puzzled by the time I had finished...


I don't want to read a series if the ending comes out all wrong! Rarely do I read a book and think, that is so not right...but this one I did...If Lucas was just going to be turned in to a vamp anyway, why not have Bianca be the one to change him??? It was kind of chintzy that they made love in a hotel room for the first time, and even chintzier that as Bianca is dying, and supposedly they love each other so much that neither one of them is willing to save her! So she's a wraith now, which is a terrible plot for the next book in my opinion! There were so many loose ends that needed to be tied up, and they just seem very unattainable now that the romance the author was building up is null and void...The characters were strong and interesting, but the plot line failed to meet the expectations of Evernight and Stargazer!

At least on the bright side, Gray will be bringing out a series about Balthazar who was an awesome character!
