I liked it at first..........

* CONTAINS SPOILERS *
The book started off so well, the characters were good, great storyline until the main character, Keely got caught up loving 3 guys. Now, I can understand that it would be hard to NOT love the 3 guys but when she gave her heart to one and went behind his back and got with another, I lost all respect for Keely. Then after that, Keely annoyed me right upto the end of the book. I had to keep reading hoping she'd redeem herself to Nick but in the end after still not able to commit to him, she then asks selfishly if he'd still be her guardian?! Wow, really?? I'm glad he walked away as she doesn't deserve him.
At one point I did feel sorry for Keely that heaven and earth were relying on her to fulfil the 'prophecy' to bring about peace, a grave and daunting path to undertake for one as young as her. But that was quickly replaced with disgust at the fact that she reminded me of a very spoilt and whiny child, just like a 'Princess' even though she demanded that she wasn't one.
Now Lila, I thought was awesome, tough, independent, emotional, loyal and had a lot of heart. She was so strong even though her boyfriend betrayed her. She cried, was heartbroken, yet she managed to pick herself up and keep going to keep Keely safe. A perfect heroine.
I really wanted to like this book but as I kept reading, Keely's character made it more difficult to sympathise with her plight thus making it almost painful to read. I think what she did to Nick made me so angry, I wanted to shake her!
I know many will disagree with me so you should just read it and make up your own mind.
