Wonderful characters! The story was fast paced and attention grabbing. The protagonist, Lily, was sweet, kind, and most importantly, did not annoy me at all!! I have read so many YA books lately where I just want to strangle the main character for being too bratty to be likeable. I admit to wanting to knock some sense into Tharin sometimes at the beginning, but overall, I found he grew on me as the book progressed. Damn, now I have to wait for the sequel!! I hate waiting.
