I enjoyed this book, though it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. There were several moments I expected to be cringe worthy, but surprised me by actually being entertaining. I have only a few criticisms, the first being that literally almost nothing is resolved in this first book, which I found to be a bit galling after spending all that time on it. The other is that I would have preferred to see Mina and Evaline work together, at least in the final confrontation, instead of having everything work out seemingly by accident. I kept looking forward to the moment they realized their flaws and strengths could be used in tandem, but that moment never came.
But, as I said, I did enjoy the book and I will definitely be reading the next one :)
