it was ok
bookshelves: mystery

Really kind of boring and forgettable. I disliked Adriana, who was stark, cool, warm, loving, apathetic, and worried all at the same time. She was perfect, unbelievable and... boring to read about, actually. Gage was really boring too. I'm being redundant here, but I just cannot think of another way to describe these characters and this book. The only thing that vaguely interested me was the backstory about Adriana and the other baby. I feel like Burton was trying to make all this backstory to give her characters depth, but it totally fell flat. I neither feel sorry for them nor care enough to want to read more. The ending was good, but predictable, although Burton did throw a lot of red herrings in. Again, she seemed really desperate to make it serious and mysterious (ditto for the characters), but it remained superficial. Bottom line: Give it a miss.
