This book is much darker in mood than Shiver. I liked the two points of view in Shiver, but on this one there are four. That actually made it more interesting to me because the main characters were having so many problems and in such a crappy mood that it was really bringing me down. Not that I blame them, beacuse they had their reasons, but the side characters lifted my mood and my liking for this book alot. You feel the characters pain and love but You'll never guess the ending...Well you might but I didn't ;)And now there is only one more book to wait for!
