Especially this one book of all of the ones I have read. While I read this novel…. I cried. Cast developed these characters so well that I cried at one point. It was scary, so detailed and described that it gave you the mysterious feeling when you read it. I had to read it again just to see if I skipped something or misread it. It was unbelievable how it made me think that I was part of it. It was so emotional and I felt it as part of me when I read it. I feel like this novel was written intended not to make it seem like the plot and story was perfect, but to make it real. I loved how Cast described her, it changed everything.
So Stevie Rae died in this book, and I cried so hard. Cast described her so well, that I felt as if she was my best friend. I could feel the imaginary body in my arms and blood everywhere on the floor. It changed how I finished this book.
As I said in the previous post, it’s really hard to find parts that I didn’t like especially since I finished the book 2 days ago. All I have to say is that it was too emotional and I didn’t think some parts were necessary.
P.S. You WILL cry, just trust me on this. Unless…. you have a hard heart.
I rate it 9.75/10 I cried so much, went back to read it, cried again, and so on so forth for like 4 times.
I would love for everyone to read this series it’s amazing! And so are vampires! I’m mean all the books make them sound super cool, so I’d love to be one someday! Bite me!
So sad :(
