If I could give this book zero stars I probably would. What a terrible ending to a moderately entertaining series. The plot seemed to not be well thought out, nor did the storyline seem to comport with the first book at all. Also? So lusty. I thought I was going to barf. I know that its young adult and you have to throw some lust in there to keep the kids interested, but truely, it was the worst written love story of all time. Ky and Cassia. Cassia and Xander. Xander and Lay. Ky and Indie. I couldn't keep up with all the lust.

I also hated how the narrators skipped around. To make matters worse I listend to it via audiobook and they had THREE DIFFERENT READERS. But, instead of using Cassia to say all Cassia lines, they would have Xander read his whole chapter and then use falsetto to read Cassia's lines in his chapter. It was horrible. Also, all the readers read the book in a sexy voice- EVEN THOUGH THE BOOK ISN'T SEXY! I mean seriously, you would think I was listening to a porno book if you weren't paying attention to the words.

Did I mention I didn't like this book? Yea. I didn't like this book AT ALL.
