Read from November 30 to December 03, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 2

UPDATE: Reread the newest version, and there were a lot less editing issues, phew. I'm still sticking to my 4 star rating. Parts of this just sucked me in and had the magic that is in all Ms. Higginson's works. Seriously, she writes characters that are complex and interesting, situations that make my heart break and burst, and emotions that leap off the page. I'm sticking with not being uber happy with the love triangle. I can honestly say I don't know where it's going, and I don't like that. I don't even have a side. I switch sides as often as Stella. And it leaves me not feeling like I know Stella or the boys enough. She isn't quite as strong as say Eden was. I want to see a bit more of her as she is. I'm HUGELY excited for the next book though. THere is just so much to this story and I cannot wait to see where it goes!!

PREVIOUS REVIEW: Hmmmm...didn't get into it quite as well as Reckless Magic. Ms. Higginson has an amazing imagination though...I just found it harder to get behind the Stella/Tristan/Seth almost triangle. In the Star Crossed series, you got to get behind Kiran in the first book before being totally bowled over with another possibility... So I'm not sure what I want for Stella...or for that matter what I want for Seth. Tristan didn't get under my skin as much as I was expecting. Maybe it was just not the right time for me to read this? I don't know, but it wasn't as awesome as I was anticipating. I think one of the things that really drove me crazy were the obvious editing issues...I don't know if I somehow got an unedited version, but I checked amazon for an updated copy and didn't have one. There were major POV issues (in the same sentence it would say "I" and then later "her")....normally I can tolerate them all right, but these were enough to jar me out of the world, kwim??

So after all that writing, you're probably like "but you still gave it 4 stars???".... Well, I did thoroughly enjoy it, this was more just an explanation of why it wasn't my fan girl 5 stars... Will be interesting to see where the series goes though....
