I really enjoyed this book. It’s fast paced and the characters are great and not only likeable but loveable. The leading lady, Ellie, is awesome and strong and I love her and I think Will is just adorable.
The storyline is great! It’s different and incredibly intriguing. Really couldn’t stop turning those pages.
* possible SPOILERS ahead *
I only found one area that was a little weird, and that was the relationship between Ellie and her father Now, maybe I’m jumping to a conclusion and I should have patience for the next book but it gave no indication that there would be any mention of this in a future book. It blew all up and then nothing. So, I do hope that they do mention it in a future book. I’m wondering what happened to him and I’m wondering if it has anything to do with the story….. like is he becoming possessed and that’s why all of a sudden he hates his own daughter so bad? That’s what it appears but then they didn’t mention him again so I’m a little confused by that.
Other than that little glitch, I thought this was a really great read! Can’t wait for more!
