I'll start off with what I like about this book. It has a cool cover. I have the kindle version, so the cover doesn't matter, but I still like it.

Now on to the bad:

The writing is very juvenile and the editing is awful. There are so many awkward sentences and misspelled words (rouge instead of rogue, heard instead of herd, etc). One line that is used way too many times throughout these books is "I pulled a face." I don't even know what that means!

I read this book and the third book back to back, and now when I am trying to think of particulars from Tremble I can't because the two books are basically the same. There's no originality between them to make either one unique. I apologize in advance if I mix up some things that happened in the two books.

I'm not sure why I bought the entire series and keep reading. I think it's partially because the underlying story/world is actually interesting despite the author butchering it to pieces. It's also like that train wreck you just can't stop looking at no matter how hard you try. I really think that there is potential here, but the author is churning these books out every two months. I wonder how much better they would be if she slowed down a little, streamlined the plot and worked on creating really good scenes instead of dozens and dozens of choppy, short, awkward scenes.

Hope Walker I couldn't agree more! I said basically the same thing. STOP writing and START editing!
