Where to start. This book did not live up to the standards that the first two provided. For most of it, I felt that I was reading a teen romance novel. And not a good one at that.
My fears from the last book proved to be true, the majority of this installment focused on Zoey and her three love interests. The first, most annoying part that I will focus on: she sleeps with her teacher. And Imprints with him. Ugh, seriously? She knows how bad it is but she does anyways. And then her boyfriend catches her and is rightly pissed off. Now, she did not deserve to be treated the way he then treated her, but Erik was understandable mad at both her and the teacher. After all, the teacher used and manipulated her in many ways. At this point, I hope she gets back with her human boyfriend, Heath. At least he isn’t trying to control her and does truly love her.
Okay, enough about that.
Stevie Rae is alive! Well, she’s undead. Same thing? Maybe, possibly. I love that Stevie Rae ends up being restored to her old self, with a couple minor changes. I think Stevie Rae is going to play a very important role from now on and I am excited to see what that is.
I am definitely enjoying the changes in Aphrodite and Zoey’s relationship. I am glad that they seem to have buried their past and are working on establishing trust and friendship. I also like the character development of Aphrodite. She is showing that she isn’t simply the shallow vapid character that was originally portrayed. She truly regrets her past actions and wants to atone for what she has done wrong.
Even though Zoey has been distanced from her friends due to her actions, I have faith that they are still there for her and that they won’t actually abandon her.
Guess we will see what book 4 brings! Hopefully less relationship woes!
