I checked this book out based on the many good reviews I read. I have to admit, I didn't really love it. Granted, this is not a genre I read often. That being said, I was really engaged for the first part of the book. I felt like much of the middle really drug. I found myself just pushing to get through it. It did really pick up toward the end and captivate my attention again. I became more invested in the characters but still found them to be somewhat forgettable once i finally finished this book. Given that I had to renew this book twice and still went over my time to slog through it, I don't see myself checking out the next one.
