I've waiting so long for this book!

I'm not real sure how I feel about this book. It ended the way it should have. Period. But the path to get there was heart breaking.

I actually didn't like the last couple of chapters. I think that I'd have liked it better if she had ended it with Xander's last chapter (he has a profound statement about love at the end of it). The last two chapters could have been summed up in an epilogue, I think.
