I thought this was very so-so. I wanted to like it, I really did. I love Stiefvater's writing style, but this just didn't do it for me. I started this some time back and put it aside. Got back to it this week since I took some time off and found it was just dragging. I noticed I wasn't paying attention and reading the same paragraphs over again and still not retaining anything. Must admit I skimmed a lot of it from about 1/2 way through to the end. I won't bother with the remaining books in the series. Wish I liked the book better.
