I really like the first few books in this series but its getting really redunant. How many times can these kids battle some new Neferet creation before someone figures out that the chick is whacked out of her mind? I just finished this latest book and it wasnt that great. First off, whats with all the horrible grammer? I know the characters are kids and have their own lingo but its horrible to read. All the aints, and gonnas, and crap, its aweful! And I know Zoeys grandma is native american but is this book her "accent" is so much more pronounced that it sounds sterotypical and out of place since it wasnt that bad in previous books. The second frustrating thing is that it was mostly about Rephiam and his humanity, Zoey was totally a secondary character. And why all of a sudden are the twins at odds? Why keep throwing out these unnecessary subplots, just get to a point already! If the now inevitable next book isnt more action packed and clear, I am giving up on the series. Im tired of wasting the time and money for mediocre books.

I actually liked the last book and the first book, but it is dragging on and on and on, and I cannot make myself buy this one for stinking 10 bucks. Way to much for repetition. I was going to read reviews first and see if it would be worthy of buying, and it looks like not. I am sick of reading the same thing over and over again and sick of the bad guy always comes out ahead.

I totally agree. I'm only half way through this one but I'm tired of it already. This series really needs to come to an end.

If you're going to knock someone's "bad grammer" you might want to check your own (spelling and punctuation included) before you post to a public forum.
