Thank god dark water is released this year! In fact if my facts are correct July 10th - *squeals* I CANNOT WAIT!

I wasn't disappointed - in fact I like this book better than the first and I had more 'OH MY GOD THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN' reactions WHICH I LOVE IN A BOOK! I also found the reactions in this book were a lot more realistic - I could feel the emotions so much more and I did tear up at some points.

Where was Simon though =( and WHAT WAS WITH THAT ENDING! SIMON! WHAT THE HELL! Poor Vanessa - although I do think a lot of what happened was necessary for Vanessa to move forward and become stronger...speaking of which I love the development of Vanessa in this book and she became a much how can I word character.

There so many more complex emotions in this book but what annoyed me slightly is the fact theres like this whole relationship break down and another guy - WHY IS THERE ALWAYS THESE ELEMENTS IN SEQUELS. No scrap that I know why and I get they're necessary but...bah...I just think Simons great OKAY =( but then I kind of fell for Parker aswell...(HOWEVER, I kind of liked Parker more...partly because Simons character was..different in this book. He lost his quirkiness....)

I predicted what would happen and who certain mysterious characters were but the way my predictions came true blew me away. Tricia Rayburn is a brilliant writer..speaking of her writing skills I love the way she ends each chapter - we end on a cliffhanger type thing but we dont the direct reaction, the next chapter always goes onto a different scene which...I dont know - I just loved that.

I read this book in one day..practically..i only read 24 pages last night so..yeah, it took me a day to read because I couldn't put it down - even when I was busy EVERY spare moment I need to find out what happens - this was a brilliantly written, well paced amazing book and I just loved it okay!

I'll add to this review when I dont have book eyes IM SO TIRED!

Although this is one of those books where what you think is completely wrong. Same with Siren. AND THERES SO MANY QUESTIONS If I hated this book i'd read it just to get the questions answered - thats why rayburn is brilliant =')"
