Why this book?:
First, I was it on Wowbrary. Second, check out that cover. Third, I've been enjoying the Greek Mythology lately (Percy Jackson, etc.).
I started the book interested and intrigued. I started liking the characters, getting into the story, and then... the book changes. Meg has a floaty romantic time (All well and good, even if I was nervous waiting for the other foot to drop). Then, suddenly, I can't believe these characters are being so narrow minded and short sighted (Well maybe I can - they're teenagers. But that didn't make it any less frustrating.) And I'm becoming angry. With them and the story.
And I guess the ending was okay, but it didn't satisfy me. And apparently there will be more books and this is a series since the author writes in her FAQs (on her website), "And I know the furies are definitely not done with me yet." So maybe that's what is up with the ending. But wouldn't it have been nice if the ending had rocked and this had stayed a stand alone? Huh? Wouldn't that have been fabulous?
So I might read a book two (assuming there is one) to see how things happen after time. But I'm kinda sorry that this book that I was all set to love (I don't read YA all that often anymore, you know) got me all ramped up and then fell. But you know, maybe this ending was right and shows consequences last. Maybe I just wanted to much happy, happy.
