I'm not gonna lie. I picked up this book because the cover is exceptionally beautiful. But the cover isn't the reason I rated this book so well. The story is exciting with never a dull moment. There are plot twists any avid mystery or thriller fan would appreciate. And the romance, while enjoyable, isn't all consuming like some fantastical YA tales. If you check out this title, be sure to check out the next two in the series with it, because you'll be eager to know what happens next.
