First off, I REALLY wanted to like this book. Everything I had previously read about it appealed to me. I do love duel POVs, but add in the past and present chapters in addition to two different POVs and I was more than confused. About halfway through, I skipped the "past" chapters all together because I didn't feel like it was important information. Overall, the idea is clever and while I enjoyed Kiersten's writing style in the Paranormalcy series, this time I couldn't connect to anything the story offered. Highly doubtful I'll be reading the next book.
