really liked it
Read from May 22 to 23, 2012

I really enjoyed this book. It was refreshing to read something paranormal that did not have vampires or shape-shifters in it. The plot was generally good although I thought it dragged a teensy bit in a couple of places. I was getting frustrated at one point that there were so many questions and no answers being given. I suppose that's how it was meant to be - to parallel Ethan's frustration. There were also a couple of scenes that were somewhat cliche and predictable (the school dance in particular)and one scene ((view spoiler)) that seemed particularly ridiculous.

I love love loved entire cast of characters - starring and supporting both. Many of them were really funny. The only character I didn't like was the villain (view spoiler). She was evil but her character wasn't really developed enough to be satisfying to me.

I still have unanswered questions
(view spoiler) but I'm guessing those will be answered as the series continues.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will definitely check out the next in the series.
