My thoughts

Story:  This story is pure GOLD. It was a fast paced book, but not too fast paced where you start getting confused. I loved the story line. It brings a new twist to the idea. I also loved the romance between Dante and Abby. It was the best part of the book, but not the only aspect of the book. This story is more than a romance. It has the perfect balance of action, mystery, and romance.

Characters: I loved every single character, even Zo. He is the perfect villain. If such a thing excites.
There is a decent amount of character development.

Writing: The writing in this book was really great for a first time author. I mean it's not the best writing, but it's still really great. I love how she makes the love between Abby and Dante feel so real. because I was afraid that the love between Abby and Dante would feel fake.

Ending: The ending was a really great ending for a first book in a series. It leaves with such a cliffhanger that you are on the edge of your seat just waiting for the next book.                  


Overall: It was a really Great book. I loved it. It is now one of my favorite books.
