it was ok
Read in April, 2009

OK. My friend Mandy and I picked this up on a whim. "Cool cover" we said to each other. Little did we know it is a series that has been out since 2003 and seems to have been published by a small publishing company. The two books in the store are really the first 4 books. The final book comes out in September. Apparently there was some publishing house issues. I am telling you all of this because. I feel so sorry for the people who read this book in 2003 and had to wait until 2009 for the conclusion. Each book ends with a cliff hanger. I have read A LOT of YA this year. I have fought demons and vampires and witches oh my. I have struggled through the adolescencs agnst of some twisted love stories. This story makes those stories feel like a cool breeze on a spring day. I have never felt some much frustration and sadness. It is fight after fight, denied love after denied love. And I-being the glutton for punishment-keep coming back for more. My heart fell when I realized we would not get the conclusion until July 7, 2009! Then I thought, I could be one of those waiting for 6 years. It is a good story. In order to hang in there with it you need to have your LOST or Damages cap on. There is a lot of time flipping and people being possessed. The point of view changes a lot--for each main character and there are several. The fact that they can weave the many POV together and tell essential two stories is amazing. It is an adventure reading about an family feud (witches against warlocks) that gives forbidden love at a new meaning.

Abby Awesome review. I agree about the pov switching

Kirsten I've had the set for months. I'm just now reading the first book. I don't like the constant POV changing in one chapter. So far it is a good read.
