I enjoyed the first book in this series since it was fast paced and I liked the characters. Because of that I was looking forward to reading this sequel.
I was hoping that this book would be fast paced, interesting, and have good characters.Unfortunately this book didn't meet my expectations.
I had a really hard time with the characters. To be honest they frustrated me, a lot, at times. The relationship between Phoebe and most of the other characters were strained, and to be honest, a bit annoying.
It did have an interesting plot line that I would have enjoyed more if I had connected with the characters.
I really wanted to like this book, but I couldn't.
I'm not sure if I will finish this series. If you have read the last book in this series please let me know what you thought of it.
My rating: 2
