First, there was way too much new information. Meaning you had to guess what was going on far at least 30% of the book. The main character throws stilettos. I had to search what this was since it didn't seem to make sense that it wasn't the shoe. I had assumed the grandfather was passed prior to the opening of the story, he was not. He was not talked about in the present and I believe the story description stated he was passed, so when you figure out he was alive it throws you. Also when they discover his body it is described like his look is familiar to us. No I had no clue again who it was or what was going on. Another example of this is trying to figure out her definition for words like sleeper, tao, hunters, and so on.
So yes it drove me crazy to have to figure out words on the fly. Also some of the words were not explained throughly enough. The hunters obviously hunt bad things, but why can the heal faster? Do they live longer? Why do they have different powers? Do they all have powers? And so on.
One of the last and most annoying of all is the interaction of the two main characters. Mahaela was a strong, fierce and independent women. We find out that Noah cheats on her. I don't know how long the breakup is because it seemed to change from five years to two. Anyway Mahaela hates Noah, which she has every right to. When you are in Noah's head he is never remorseful or apologetic. He keeps saying she is mad and I get that but move on. What! Move on!! Ok how about discussing the situation while he is on his hands and knees begging for mercy. It drove me crazy. We even get into Mahaela's head where she feels she is overdoing it. I don't know why the author presents this like this but it is not ok to cheat. We learn it was an illusion he wanted her to see, but without that knowledge it was plain old cheating and she should be angry with him. There was also no love felt and their complete reconciliation did not occur until the last 10 pages of the book, this includes the epilogue.
The last part that drove me crazy was the whole triad thing. We come to understand that Noah was accepted into the triad. Through most of the book you assume that there is some celibacy thing for the triad. Some reason they can not be with someone. Why else pretend to cheat on your girlfriend. In the end they are together anyway. Why is it ok now? Why go through everything when it was ok to begin with?
So to sum up there was a lot of confusion with starting this book. There should probably be a definition section to help. Lots of description about places, but not about people. Hated that things didn't add up with the triad and really hated there was no apology from Noah. The story line could not pull me dislike for the book up from a two, but it has me curious for the next one. Totally crazy I know. I am a glutton for punishment.
