This is the character that Siranthia Jax should have been. She was tough on so many admirable levels. She could fight well and didn't depend on a white knight to always swoop in and rescue her-- which is the sort of shit that bothers me about a lot of YA books these days. She also has a strong sense of dignity. She doesn't come emotionally undone in public and doesn't make an ass out of herself when a guy burns her. She basically says eff him and moves on. I loved that. I loved the world and the characters. Things weren't outright predictable and that's one thing that is consistent with Ann's work. I suppose my biggest complaint would be the sex scenes. I have no issue with sex. I'm not a prude and I enjoy a good sex scene. Writing a good sex scene is really not Ann's thing. She almost tried to be tasteful about it by omitting things and that just made it hard to read. I found myself having to guess as to what they were actually doing because Ann almost seemed too afraid to outright say it. Aside from that, I loved the book. Read it in record time and can't wait for the sequel.
