All I wanted in this book was for the truth to come out about how Adrian felt about Sydney. It was SO obvious and you could just tell without being a love expert that she was attracted to Adrian. That's all I wanted. For the truth to come out and for a happy ending.
BUT NO! Apparently, in this new era of books happy endings aren't allowed. Instead Richelle Mead led me right into the trap. The moment came
and then went.
It crushed my heart, literally. And now here I am sitting, crying, sobbing uncontrollably. It's a miracle I am writing this right now.
The one thing that I love about this book is the way Richelle Mead is able to develop relationships throughout the plot. Generally, I am used to your stereotypical love plot-lines but this is different. You don't expect any romance between Adrian and Sydney in the beginning but you can constantly feel it growing stronger and stronger throughout the book. She makes you understand both their feelings for each other. An example being Jill randomly complimenting Sydney. It was so obvious that was Adrian's influence due to the spirit bond which only strengthens the bonds between Adrian and Sydney. Also the fact that Sydney, however much she denies it is attracted to Adrian which can be seen through her experiences with Brandon and the comparison of that juxtaposed with the experiences with Adrian.
The plot-line of the story flowed and did not go jagged. The sub-plots did not interfere with the point of the novel and the characters were well-developed. You begin to understand Sydney and begin to not hate her as much as I did in the first book.
So overall, I cannot wait to begin the next book which is in my hands and hope my dreams are not crushed once again. Although I think I'll wait till my emotional breakdown is over before starting.
