I expected with as many 4 and 5 star reviews this book had that it would be, I don't know, good. Or at the very least engaging. This book is neither. If the story had been more compelling it would have been far easier to overlook the grammatical and punctuation issues, not to mention the off-putting stylistic choices. But this book falls, sadly, into the same blah mold that so many young adult paranormal stories fall into. The main girl, Caia, is the most Mary-Sues of Mary-Sues and the plot could have moved forward so much quicker if the author hadn't relied on the secrets and lies machinations to absurdly move her chess pieces on the board. I guess I'm simply resigned to not getting the love on this book and moving on.
