** spoiler alert ** This book makes me feel a little conflicted.

What was with Abby's role? It seemed like she should have been more involved somehow, but all she did was accuse Tandie of things for no reason and without any evidence. Why did she implicate Tandie in her attack? I don't get that shit.

Shania was bat shit insane, blaming a six year-old for that shit that happened long ago. How was it Tandie's fault that Chelsea got raped and killed and Shania and Gus got tortured? I guess being a psycho is the reasoning for that. Even if Tandie had still been in the cabin, though, it was the teenagers' faults for locking her in there. That part just threw me. I was wondering how they were going to tie that end scene to what all was going on. Seriously, it almost had no connection. I don't think the reincarnation was necessary. Just the fact that they were descendants would have been enough.

The book was creepy, so that tone was done pretty well. Tandie wasn't bad for a heroine and Eric was a decent hero. Saul's sudden good guyness was frickin' weird, though. I couldn't get with that. I didn't really connect with any of these characters, though. I did want to know wtf was going on, so that's what kept me reading.

I'm not sure yet if I will read the next book. I might. The ending of this one seemed abrupt and kind of rushed to me, though. Eric was a bit too gullible for me. And was the character assassination of Virgil really necessary? In the end, that didn't really matter for shit at all and Abby's character was pretty much not needed.
