Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I read this book a few years ago, and I absolutely loved it. I cried during the movie after it came out because I remembered how emotional the scene was when I read it in the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 1/2 stars I am not going to lie, this book is great, BUT SOME OF IT IS SO BORING I ALMOST THREW IT ACROSS THE ROOM. I found the book hard to get through, mostly at the part when it was just Wanderer and Melanie talking. Basically, you need a lot of patience to get through this book, although the idea and writing is great. I definitely recommend this book to fans of books like Lux or Shadow Falls.
