I was really excited for this book. I knew that without Rise as the main character it wouldn't be as exciting as the Vampire Diaries series, but I was still looking forward to it. It was...ok. I like Sydney & Eddie, Jill is ok, and & of course, I love Adrian. But too much about this book was way too obvious from the start, and it was a bit boring in places. I enjoyed the banter between Sydney & Adrian, especially her bewilderment at him calling her too skinny, & I'm hoping that continues to develop in the text book of the series.
