I was not a fan of this book.
It is a combination of the writing being much too young for me (I'm only 26...but I feel like this is written more for 11-15 year old's, even though the main characters are 17/18.)and the excitement level was just not high enough to keep me interested.

“I can’t do it, Caer,” Eref said. “I can’t say goodbye to you, too.”
Caer’s smile grew as she came even closer. “I’m going with you,” she whispered, “so you don’t have to say goodbye.”
They kissed. Her lips felt soft and cool, and her mouth was unbelievably sweet. Caer’s hand brushed his cheek and brought him closer. He reached up and took her
hand in his. He didn’t want to ever let go.”
