My Thoughts...
I have a big problem with this book...there wasn't more! I loved every second I spent reading this book. I got to the end and sat there wishing someone would zap my nook with some extra chapters. I loved the mythology that this book was centered around, usually I'm more into Green, Roman, or other foreign cultures. This was based on something I am around every day, and while usually that would turn me off a book, it worked here. The characters were very well written. Sasha was cool, I loved how she felt a connection to Jax, but at the same time she had a hard time dealing with what he is and what he does. Jax and his brothers were cool and quirky in a brotherly way. The story never seemed to slow down we jump right in and it just keeps moving. The writing was fantastic and with everything mixed together this story kept me turning the pages to see what happened next. This was a fresh story and a very entertaining read. I suggest this one for all YA fans! I give this one 5 stars!
