Great book! I took off half a point because the characters didn't show their personality enough to connect with. Other than that it was a great book: suspense, romance, action, mystery and a few twists that will blow your mind!😺

Seriously, I don't think it is a great book but I don't think it's that bad.

I loved this book. I liked how it had quick pace in the beginning, and made you think. I liked how real the emotions were and felt from the loss of her dad. I also thought it was interesting with the different phobia obsession. It was definitely unique and gave a creepy outlook on all things pixie. This book got me so invested that I could barely put it down. Plus, the shocking twists pretty much captivated me (haha).

First off, I don't think I enjoy stories written in present tense very much. Beyond that though, the editing job on this book is choppy at best. Jones has a great plot, but her scenes have key parts missing, presumably information that the author knew about and intended to include, but DIDN'T. My last gripe is that the main characters is almost obnoxiously quirky making her extremely hard to relate to. The story was enough however to keep me reading, and to the point that I intend to pick up the next book in the series.

This book is amazing! After I read the first book, I NEEDed to read the next 3. The only problem with the next few books is that they definitely outrank this book.

This book pissed me off when I read it because of the were-eagle and were-tiger. Were-wolves are cliche as hell but bringing in something like that without giving a GOOD reason, and I mean GOOD reason as in the author didn't just decide to throw in some random animals in there because it was a cute idea.

Yeah, I get why he's a were-eagle, no legs. What the hell ever.

The front cover of this book is very pretty but its concepts are absolute crap. Unmemorable characters, unmemorable plot.
