If I was giving stars based on characters, this would be a five star book. I loved Gemma, and really liked the other 3 girls in the inner circle. They were very real to me. When characters are presented as flawed, like real people, it's so much easier to realte to them. I can't wait to findout more about Felicity, Ann and Gemma.
The reason for three stars intead of five, is that no detail was given about the realms. We were given glimpses, but no explanations. WHATSOEVER. I guess I should just be happy there's anext book, and hope for an explanation of sorts there, but I don't think you should have to wait for the next book for the next installment for every glimmer of understanding. All three in the series are already written, so I don't have to wait if I don't want to, but if I had read this when it was first released, I would have been very disapointed. There's a difference between waiting for what's going to happen next, and waiting to understand what's already happened.
