I read the first two books in this series, and they seemed to get worse as I went along - making this my least favorite.
The original premise of these books was interesting and I looked forward to reading them. Unfortunately the writing just doesn't measure to the other books I've read of the same genre. (I read a few paranormal YA books each week). The main character is not believable in her actions and emotions. She just doesn't react to situations in a way that makes sense. She is also VERY slow to figure out things, putting 2 and 2 together many chapters after it is obvious to the reader. She wants to run away at one point, but does little about it after she tries once and fails. A believable main character would keep trying instead of sitting home whining about it.
The main romance doesn't make sense, in that they fall in love after such a short period of time, with no significant interactions. I felt no chemistry between them either. The author also makes many factual as well as editing mistakes (e.g. writing "her" instead of "him" many times, sayings sentences that don't make any sense and condraticting herself). At one point she referenced San Francisco and stated that it was sunny there all the time....even if she has never been there, please do some research before you write things.
Overall I was very disappointed in these books ( though once I buy a book I have to finish it ). But I found myself angry having to finish it because it was so bad. One more thing: the books always end with giant cliff hangers, giving no partial resolution to the story, like so many other books series do.
The is the first negative book review I have ever written on Amazon, but feel it is warranted.
