Ever since I got the first book, I have been hooked. And this book had the hooked sink even deeper into my skin. I am still shocked with the ending, it just....WOW!The story line of this book is slow at first. It picks off right where the first book left off and the reader is updated on all the things that has been going on around the camp. I enjoyed reading up on the characters and seeing their progression in their powers. A lot of the characters had really changed while others remain the same. There were some new characters introduce that made this book so good to read.The characters had a lot of growing up to do. Clio is one character that change but not in a good way. I am disappointed in some of her decisions but then again she had a lot going on. Friendships in this book, loyalties in this book were tested, badly. As I sat and read this I think I gasped like a million times. There is so much going on with the characters, secrets and alliances being made behind each other backs that it made you wonder what is really going on. Now for the ending. I have to admit that I like the ending of this book. I am not fond of a sad, bitter ending but it worked for this book. And if anything, the ending really reflected the state of the next book. Which of course makes me super, excited to read. If you have not picked up this series you should. This is one heck of a read that you will never forget! READ IT!
