My full review is here on my personal website. I'll post a few excerpts here, though:

2.5 out of 5.0 stars

The very worst thing about this book is the constant swapping of first person points of view. It’s distracting and, to someone like me who hardly pays attention to the beginning and end of a chapter, it’s downright confusing! The point of view swaps from Ky to Cassia every chapter. I can understand why it was done, but that doesn’t make it easily readable. Personally, I would prefer this book in the third person. Then you can switch back and forth between the two characters all you want. Also, I feel Xander wasn’t in this book nearly enough, but based on the ending, I’m guessing he’ll pretty much star in the last book.

The very best thing about this book is that it does somewhat keep the story going… And the cover is amazing! I love the cover. This book is not a difficult read, and that’s part of what keeps me from marking it any lower than I did, but it didn’t live up to my already low expectations. :-(
