As is the trend with today's super-popular books, this sorry read with all the unpractised flow of a bad fanfiction. Attempts to make it more florid came across as clunky and obvious. The plot was like a film set, fake and flimsy. I can't call the characters unlikable because that would be to imply that they had enough depth to them for one to have an emotional reaction to them.

Stick her next to the other one hit wonder writers like Stephanie Meyer, EL James, and Cassandra Clare.
