My Review: Wow. this was a crazy book, crazy in a very good way! i was pulled in and thrown around and loved every minute of it!!!!
Karou is a crazy kissa$$ girl and i loved her! Akiva is an angel with a huge heart!
The background stories Laini writes in this are amazing, so well detailed and thought out.
