This book starts out with a girl who moves to a new town, finds herself in life threatening situations but is miraculously saved each time by a gorgeous boy who moves impossibly fast, who has a very noticeably different body temperature, knows her name without her telling him, and he wont tell her who/what he is because they can't be together and he's trying to protect her. Oh, did you think I was reviewing Twilight? That's funny because several times I thought I was reading a very bad version of Twilight. I thought it was such a shame that so much of this book felt "borrowed", because the actual plot is interesting and had the potential to be great, but it was never really able to take off. The dialogue was painful, there were tons of loose ends and unexplained terms, and most of the characters were pretty flat and unrealistic. If I ever have the time and opportunity to read the next book in this series without wasting any money, I will, but if the opportunity never presents its self, I certainly won't lose any sleep, which says a lot because I almost never walk away from a series before it is done.
