I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first one. I read through it rather quickly because I do love the series so much, but this book just didn’t do it for me. I found myself getting really angry at all the characters and really just enjoyed it for Xemerius, a small stone gargoyle demon. ( )

The mystery keeps building! I really feel Gwen's frustration with the people around her. At the same time though, I am frustrated with how she reacts to everything that's going on. I honestly like her friend Lesley more than her right now. ( )

This book (#2) is as easy read, but slightly better than the first book in the series. As more people has commented there are more time travels, meaning more action, kissing, intrigues and blood. We meet the same characters, adding a sidekick demon and a new bad guy (or is he?), and they havn't change much since the last book. Things are revealed (we finally get some answers!), making the story much more intricate and the characters more interwoven, which I really liked. There's still a lot of retelling, but the I didn't see it all coming this time. ( )

Parts of this book are enjoyable. I still like the premise. But I got so annoyed at the characters (pretty much ALL of them, but mostly the main two) that I put the book down for a long while without finishing it, and the liberally skimmed the last third of the book.

Will I finish the series? Maybe. But it's more likely that I'll just read a summary. ( )
