Those of you who have started: how long is it?

Well I have the ebook version and that is about 271 pages, usually the hardcover or paperback version is about twice as long. So I would guess about 500 pages or less.

message 26: by Bree (new)

Bree Phoenix (breephoenix) | 31 comments I'm so exicted to be reading this book with you all. I've started it last night and couldn't put it down.


message 27: by Gayatri (new)

Gayatri | 82 comments Finally I have completed the book ! It is a good read!

I agree with Jessica on the first question.

I think we were given a reasonable explanation on why Penn wanted to stay in Swords and Cross. After all he was the only family Penn had so definitely proper sentiments on her side!


message 28: by Stefani (new)

Stefani (steffiebaby140) Do you think Luce’s offense warranted the punishment of being sent to Sword and Cross since she has know recall of what exactly happened to Trevor as well as know proof?

Since there is a history of mental health problems, according to the parents and doctor at least then this is not uncommon. As a minor the court and your parents can pretty much do whatever they want if they have reason to be concerned about your safety or the safety of others. Even with no proof of what happened to Trevor, there is definately reason to be concerned about other's safety.

Do you think Arriane went out of her way to befriend Luce? Why?

I think it's fairly obvious that she not only went out of her way but has an agenda. We have to assume that given the shady histories of everyone in this book that they all have an agenda of some sort.

Do you feel there is some sort of hostility between Daniel and Cam?

Probably mostly jealousy on Cam's part and caution on Daniel's.

How do you think Arriane happen to be wearing a tracking bracelet?

There is obviously more to her story than we know about, and those behavior issues probably continued at the school leading to her being tracked. Since she was the first to take a swing at Molly this proves she has a tendency toward violence.

Do you think Arriane is always trying to put herself between Cam and Luce? Why?

I think both of them want Luce for something, and its probably nothing good. So Arriane sees Cam trying to go after his own agenda and feels threatened.

Do you think we were given a reasonable explanation on why Penn was still at Sword and Cross?

Definately not. As with everyone else in the book, she has an agenda and a history that we haven't been told yet.


message 29: by Anna (new)

Anna (SylviaGrant) Because it might have sexy junk and I don't want to read about that stuff..except for kissing I can allow myself read but farther than that like a honeymoon room scene will haunt me for a long time.


message 30: by Amy (new)

Amy Acosta (amy-acosta) | 3 comments Do you think Luce’s offense warranted the punishment of being sent to Sword and Cross since she has know recall of what exactly happened to Trevor as well as know proof? I did find it a bit drastic. But, err things happen for a reason, yes?

Do you think Arriane went out of her way to befriend Luce? Why?
Definitely! I love crazy Arriane.

Do you feel there is some sort of hostility between Daniel and Cam?
None, zero, nada... Truth? Yes.

How do you think Arriane happen to be wearing a tracking bracelet?
It's the latest in fashion at Sword and Cross.

Do you think Arriane is always trying to put herself between Cam and Luce? Why?
Yeah. It's a push and pull game between those two sides.

Do you think we were given a reasonable explanation on why Penn was till at Sword and Cross?
Yes. A bit sad though.. the reason.

Gayatri | 82 comments Same here. When you're having fun. Technology and electronics are far from your mind !!


message 40: by Irene (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments Same here with the vacation and electronics thing. I get one once every couple days because I sell my pottery and I may have a buyer. Other than that I don't realky get on unless it is stormy and we can't go outside.

message 44: by Pam (new)

Pam Foldenauer (christigilmore) | 2 comments i read this months ago. loved it. its quite long, but still. the longer the book, the better. i just wish the chapters were shorter


message 45: by Irene (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments That's okay i am super far behind, i can't get the book from my libary yet so i am readind it online but that istaking for ever. (Page 16) Once i get it in paper form i will catch up (hopefully soon).


message 46: by Gayatri (new)

Gayatri | 82 comments I have completed reading uptill Passion now.
Anyone need ebooks of the books???
I have all the three!!


message 47: by Irene (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments What are they about?


message 48: by Irene (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments Yes, and it doesn't help that it continually tells me that too many people are reading online. I NEED to go the libary because once i finish the three books i have i won't have a single thing to read :( (even on my Nook and i can't buy any books for it right now)


message 49: by Irene (last edited Jul 15, 2011 12:56PM) (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments The guy is talking about Luce (i think) oh and i am only page 10 the page numbers are off by six pages :( i'm confused at this point but figure it will make sense in a couple page?


message 50: by Irene (new)

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments True
