If I had to give the first 3/4 of this book a review, I would have given it two stars at the most.

The plot was painfully, agonizingly slow with many, many unnecessary characters and plotlines that just bugged the hell out of me. I found myself skipping large portions of text to get to anything worth reading.

The last quarter of this book however, earned that last two stars. It was intense, amazing, beautiful. I almost cried. I wanted to cry. What happened at the end... on the bridge... well bugger me!

Then at the very end with the note... gah! Be still my beating heart!

The Avery/Lissa side story was complete rubbish. Everyone's casual treatment of Adrian was complete rubbish. The deal with Abe annoys the hell out of me for many reasons that I can't put here unless I spoil things. But the ending... that beautiful ending made up for all of it.

Tatiana I agree with your assessment, this book was my least fave in the series. Way too much filler and Lissa/Avery story line didn't hold my interest not one bit. I couldn't bring myself to give the book more than 3 stars. Hope Spirit Bound is better.

Kristen "Kirby" Totally agree. The ending was awesome,while the first 3/4 of book was boring. Hope Lissa doesn't have as much of a part in Spirit Bound, and that Mead puts more time and thought into it. Like the review. (:

Kat Kennedy I DID think the end made up for a lot and I am glad that I did continue up to this point. I'm really hoping Spirit Bound is better but I'm not too hopeful because I feel like Rose is about to do something VERY stupid.

Kristen, I think Lissa, unfortunately WILL have a much bigger role in Spirit Bound - but I know how you feel.

Alec John I totally agreed!

Anna Yeh, I feel like Mead is treading water in the first half of the VA books. Too much recap. Skip on 200 pages and you have a good novel.

Hannah I agree. I've had this book sitting on my shelf for a long time. It's just so slow and painful to read. I honestly just want to skip it and go on to the next book.
