This is one of those books that started off at a really fast pace. I couldn't get enough of it until I hit the middle of the book. It seemed like everything just dragged on and on and on. The end was filled with action, but the middle was so painfully slow that I almost didn't care about the ending. I kept wanting to shake some sense into the heroine. This was an ok read and I liked it enough to want to read the next one in the series, but I'm glad i got this one from the library.
