I must preface this by saying that I'm a huge fan of this author. Her writing is absolutely incredible. Her characters are just so unique and so real and so well written, her descriptions are unlike anything, and I am yet to read a book by her that I do not like. I read her werewolf series and was unsure if I wanted to read anything else by her. I was nervous I wouldn't like it as much as the werewolf series. This series is different for sure but still very good. I found the characters so fascinating and can't wait to read the next book in this series. I do not think that this book equals my love for her werewolf series but it's still excellent. I would honestly say that her books are some of the best YA books out there. You should really give them a chance, especially if you love supernatural themes. Even if you feel like you've outgrown most YA as I often feel, you will still love her books because they aren't your typical Young Adult books.
