This one was definitely better than the first and I think I give that credit to Jacob - who is by far the best character to come out of this series so far. I like how the author kept him very secretive literally up until the last minute. I don't think there was really one thing I didn't like about him.

Now, as for everyone else...I like PJ, he's entertaining and always good for a laugh. Amber, I really just don't get. Chad - no comment. Drea - hmph...bitch and worst friend ever (I don't think my opinion of her is ever going to change).

The story line of this book felt a little more suspensful than the first book and I think because it had to deal with Stacey directly and her possible death. I still wish Stacey would grow a backbone though and actually stand up for herself.

Moving onto #3...

Noelle Oh Jacob, be still my heart!

Love him.


Selene Oh my, Jacob. You're right, he really did save this book. And Drea is a bitch, why Stacey is still her friend is a source of constant mystery to me

I agree, Selene. One of my major problems with this series is the fact that Drea is such an unredeemable character


motherofboys247 Amber is just too cliched a character to be believable at all.

I got that as well, but then again, her cliched-ness also made her a little fun to read. Ok I lie, I only put up with her because of her nails. And maybe her guy jokes.

I haven't read past the 2nd book, does she still stay push-off-a-cliff annoying?

Pretty much. Not a lot of the characters actually change or grow in this series. It was rather frustrating.

Well that's disappointing. Only going to keep reading it because I misguidedly bought up to book 4...
