Although I found the concept of the book interesting I had a hard time keeping myself in the book. It was a hard start and I continued to struggle with it well into the middle. But by the end, I found myself a little lost in the story and finished it more quickly then I had started it. Noel continually repeats herself making the reading of this book annoying. I think that is what annoyed me most, and the slowness of the beginning of the book. But, further on I did start to get lost in the story and finding myelf interested in this "Magick" world. There is a lot of werewolf, vampire, angel, and zombie books out right now, so this read was a nice change-up from what I have been reading lately.
BUT, my main issue is with the characters. I don't know how I feel about Daire. I couldn't connect with her even though I think she was a good MC. She is brave, smart, and fearless when needed to be. Still, I am not sure what my issue with her is? There wasn't enough character developement for the supporting cast in here either. Dace, the good twin, was a fleeting character showing up in dreams and coincident run-ins. So although you get them connecting and the repeating's of how all she feels is kindness and overwhelming of love from him, you really don't get to know him in the book. Cade, the evil twin, comes off a bit cartoonish for me. I don't really know why, but I find him more silly then evil.
In the end, I liked the book. It's not something I would probably read again, but it is a series I will continue on with..
