What I think:
This book was something else. The concept was so unique, so original and well thought out. And I loved it. Let me tell you, I could not put this book down. I was completely enamored by the story.
I liked Seraphina. She was sweet and pretty smart. I was a little impressed.
Cyrus was a legitimate bad guy. It was evident in the way everyone treated him, as if they were only a second away from calling him master.( I think that actually happened at one point) . Anyway, it was also evident in what Sera-I love the short version of her name for some reason- thought about him. I honestly started thinking that the guy was a ticking time bomb.
I really liked Bryan. There was definitely some sarcasm there and I love a guy who can make me laugh.
Noah was really nice and sweet. I wish he had a little more depth, though. Or maybe it’s just that I didn’t get to know him as well as I would’ve liked. The same goes for the parents.
And the ending, people, ugh, I loved and hated this ending. I loved it, because in a way it was brilliant and the possibility of it briefly crossed my mind, but I brushed it off thinking: “Oh, no she wouldn't!”. But if what I think happened actually happened, then she definitely did.
But like I said, I also hated the ending, because it was too abrupt, which I think is a typical part-of-a-series-book problem. I don’t mind the cliffhanger, that was brilliant, but it needed a little more of… something leading up to it.
Nevertheless, this book pleasantly surprised me. I started reading it, thinking I’d just read a few pages and then go to bed. Well, so much for going to bed early. But this book was definitely worth it.
