*YAWN* 2.5 stars. I was bored reading this. It feels like it took me forever to finish. I have a soft spot for de la Cruz. She is one of the first YA authors I read and when she embarked on this journey to write an adult series I was on board. I guess her first book wasn't that memorable because I had forgotten what had happened. Lucky for me the first chapter is a summary. Phew! Overall - I was bored. Read a lot like a first novel and I couldn't wait to finish it and move on to a different book.
