It took me a little while to process this book before I could review it. The book starts off right where the last one left off and deals with the aftermath of the events that occurred. This one didn’t waste as much time recapping things, which I liked, and the chapters focused on various characters. The book kept my interest the whole time, especially the last few chapters.
I’m happy that Zoey (Spoiler alert) finally broke up with Erik. He’s annoying. I really loved the character Heath in this book. The fact that he’s completely human, yet is willing to help Zoey and her friends fight, is really cool. The readers get to see a lot more of his thoughts and feelings in this book, which makes it sadder. I also like Stark’s character and I think he’s good for Zoey.
I got annoyed with Stevie Rae in this one. She keeps making stupid decisions and doesn’t seem to care about the consequences. She hides things from her friends, uses her Earth affinity selfishly and is starting to get like Zoey with the multiple boyfriends. She’s sort of at 3. Just pick one already, people!
One of the other things that annoyed me was that the authors replaced the word “love” with “heart” in this one. I think it would’ve been ok a few times, but they hearted everything.
There are two deaths in this one, so it’s one of the saddest books in the series so far (for me anyway). I was reading on the bus when the second one happened and I gasped, causing another passenger to ask if I was ok. I felt kind of silly explaining that it was because of the book, but I get really into things when I read.
I already have the next two books in the series and I’m starting Burned today.
