Ugh, I don’t really want to review this book.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, but my expectations were dashed in this one.  It was underwhelming in the end. I was a bit disappointed that the brother didn’t play a more important role. He was found/rescued with not as much resistance as I had hoped.

The ending wasn’t as climatic as I had hoped. Cami’s brother was swayed too easily in my opinion.  I don’t know if I was angry that the book was ending and taking it out on the characters but it just seemed too be too easily accomplished. Where’s the great ending battle?  This book tied up all the loose ends; but it all seemed too fast to me.  It didn’t have the depth that I had come to expect from this author and I think that stilted my feelings for this book.

Cami’s stubbornness and refusal to see reason was kind of abrasive in this book and not endearing to me.  Drake is noble and perfect as always.  I did like the character change for Zandra (the Grandmother).  She proved that a villian can change and that was a great highlight for me.

I am thinking about re-reading the last few chapters honestly because I think I got a little lost in the end.
