The Story

I found this book to be equal parts intriguing and annoying.

The Intriguing:
- WTF is going on? The whole mystery of the Searcher/Keepers is what I want to know more about. I’m dying for them to uncover the truth.
- What exactly is Shay (a.k.a. The Scion)? Why is he so important?

The Annoying:
- The love triangle between Calla, Ren and Shay. I understand that they are young and hormones are raging but we could have saved 25 pages by not talking about it so much.
- The double EFFING standards! “Oh, Ren’s a young alpha male it’s natural for him to go out with other girls and want sex but NO Calla you can’t dare have desire too.” I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist. They can take that crap and shove it.

Overall I liked the book. I think it some pages could have been edited out and some opponents (looking at you huge spider) could have been left out altogether. But I’m intrigued enough to go on to the next book.
