In all honesty I think that this author should mark her work as adult fiction more than teen fiction. Her topics are often pretty intense, and as a mature yet young reader I really didn't like the way she exploited all the information. It is true that certain aspects of her stories do happen in real life, but they can be unnecessarily added into works that younger audiences may read. This book is pretty intense, and I would caution readers under 16 at least. The two main characters didn't even meet until 75% of the way through the book, which I personally don't think establishes enough time for a good relationship. The big idea of the world reshaped from destruction is pretty cool; it does kind of raise questions about our use of technology today.

Personally, I loved the book! In the beginning, it starts of very slow and draggy, but if you persevered (like me), the book is amazing from around the middle! It starts really slow because P.C. Cast needed to build up the intricate plot and develop each character. In some parts of the book, there are some very graphic/detailed descriptions, so this book may not be for everyone. Also, there is a pretty realistic spider picture in the middle of the book, so beware if you have arachnophobia (like me). Anyways, it's still a great book! Read it if you have time, you'll be captivated! I can't wait for the next book! :D

I love all of P.C. Cast books except for this one.After reading a couple of chapters, I returned it to the library. Too violent and graphic for me. I skimmed over many paragraphs because of that.

Oh. My... no. This book needs work. It starts out so slow with too many details. I loved P.C. Cast's original series and the initial few House of Night books... but this... ugh... I love Shepherds, I do! (Have owned 2 WGSDs/Berger Blancs!!) ...but this was trying too hard to be too many things and check off all the categories.
Sorry... I'm slogging through this book just to finish it and hoping it gets better. The idea is good but I'm just not feeling it. Maybe because a lot of stuff is not explained well or not at all...
There are a few swear words so far and the main characters are in their late teens - Mari (18) and early 20s - Nik (23) so this is going to be geared toward older teens more so than tweens... there's a scene where an animal is essentially tortured by being flayed alive by Dead Eye (21 years old).
The main character, Mari, is annoying - I am getting a saccharine/simpering feeling from her.... reminiscent in a way of Bella from TwiBlight/50Shades who was blah.
We will see how this turns out... *Fingers Crossed*
