I adore the person who recommended this book to me, but I did not adore this book. The write writes exactly how I fear I write. She seems in love with her turns of phrase and you can tell she thinks she is terribly clever when, in reality what she offers is a bag of cliches and unsurprising plot twists. This book has a companion and, much as I love series, I can't read it. I have not been this disappointed in a book since I read The Golden Compass. The best thing that I can say about this book is that it flew by quickly.
