As a big fan of the series I have been looking forward to this book for a long, long time. I fell in love with Mira as soon as I met her when she was a little girl, and seriously, who wouldn't? She was freakin adorable! And I love that I got the opportunity to see how she turned out. Two thumbs up for Lara just for that. I love when I get what I want :) I really liked Kellan too and think they make a great couple. I mean, she's loved him forever. But I felt something was missing on Kellans part. Everything he said and did was right, but I felt his character lacked emotion. I don't know how to explain it, and it could just be me, cause honestly, I'm not the most forgiving person. And the way he just left her???? What an ass. But maybe you all are much better human beings than I and will think differently [suckers]. Anyway, overall, the book was really good and definitely left me wanting to read more about the new group of characters, as well as some old ones.
