|not amazing, not terrible|
My opinion: I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I loved the premise (though I loved it more at the beginning than I did as secrets began to be revealed). The characters are mostly likeable and complex. The plot is a little weak though. For a book that wants to be a thriller, the tension just isn't there. And there are too many questions and not nearly enough answers. Many characters draw conclusions about secrets with only the slimmest of evidence, conclusions that are seldom challenged or misled. It's a plot with great promise and may very well live up to that promise with future volumes. As it stands, though, I'm hesitant to commit to this series.
