I read the third book in this trilogy and thought I was perfectly fine not going back and reading the first two. Then a friend of mine started reading them and I found myself paying more than I should to download it on audio so I could listen to it right away. Having read the finale first this seemed a bit lacking in adventure and suspense. So I had to step back and take into consideration that this is the intro to Gemma Doyle and therefore there's a good amount of character and plot development going on. Even knowing the ending to it all going in I caught myself getting wrapped up in the story that was budding. There's something spunky about Gemma that I just love. I'm itching now to get the second book downloaded and even re-read the third one (cause I'm bound to have forgotten stuff over the past year).
