I thought it was a great read, finished it in one sitting. This is a truly addicting series and I'm really excited to see where Kate Brian takes the series next. This book left off on an intense cliff hanger, leaving many exciting possibilities for the next installment, Vanished.
Highly Recommend :)
One big moan is - setting typos aside- I was seriously p'ed off when Kate Brian called Paige Ryan's mother Clarissa Ryan, when she was called Calista Ryan in the books before - seriously is she churning them out so quickly she can't even check what she's named her characters?
Don't get me started on the fact that Sawyers eyes turn from grey in Paradise Lost (gray for those of you in US) to blue in the next book (after Scandal) - Vanished.
You'd think the least she could do was have a page or two on her computer listing her characters Names and physical attributes!!!
Ok rant over.
I still love the books - it would be nice to have a bit more proof reading and fact checking prior to the stories being published.
Ok rant really is over now!
But Reed isn't quite done with Billings. When a mysterious book makes its way into Reed's hands, she sets off to re-create the Billings Literary Society. But if she plays by the rules, only eleven can make it, even though fifteen are aiming for a piece of the action, and it's up to Reed to have the final say of who's in and who's out.
I've got to admit, Reed really bothered me in this book. Instead of just letting four extra people in, she had to go and be exclusive. Although, the appeal of the Society is obvious, because it's about more than just Billings, it's about honor, truth, friendship.
Then Reed has some relationship issues, both friendship-wise and romantically. I can say, I felt sorry for one jilted romantic interest, but agreed with Reed's choice in the end.
I enjoyed that the book was back at Easton, which I sorely missed, but I do not see this as one of Brian's best novels in the Private series. I still stand by the fact that the first four were by far the best.
Highlights: An intriguing ending, as usual. I still adore Brian's writing, because she always gets me hooked from the first page to the last. I always find it very difficult to put any book of her's down!
Lowlights: There wasn't too much action going on, and of course, Reed couldn't just use her head for once. This is one of those series where I loved the first books, but now the later ones are not living up to the original standards. I'm hopeful that the next will rekindle my love for the Private series.
RATING: 3.5 out of 5
And about the place where I bought : the_book_depository was perfect, I had some inssues with the brazilian mail and they help me, they were avaiable to send me another book wihout cost if my mail didn't find the books that were missing. They really belive in your word, for now I'll always buy on then. And the most important the books were in perfect condition and come all protect in a special box.
This is by far the best book in the series!! I am DYING to know what happened to Noelle. I wonder if she herself planned it out, but I kinda doubt it. I loved how Brian made the BLS-Billings should never go down. Either way, this was the best one so far! I CANNOT wait till Vanished comes out! 5 STARS!!
