I wasn't sure what to expect going into it, but it's a pretty good book. The characters were pretty good, though admittedly sometimes inexplicable. The set-up, though, is very interesting and well worked, which is always gratifying.10/24/12 ETAI think my main problem with this series was how inexplicably supportive Jacob was once the two got together and shiz. I think I read it waiting for the other shoe to drop...and it never did. Which kind of annoyed me because I'd done all this worrying for nothing. Meh.
