Another one that started off pretty decent...drug on a little towards the middle then by the time you get close to the end, you want to toss the book across the room because its took drawn out. But thats just me! ( )

So, I started this book, and I was pretty disappointed at first. I was really hoping that it was going to be cleaner and more focused than the first book because Kate had more experience. Not so. Then, I got about three-quarters of the way through the book and it started to really pick up. I was pleasantly surprised. Then came the ending.

The ending was so stupid, rushed, and just plain bad. I absolutely will not continue with this series. I have no idea how these books have made it through the editing process in this state. ( )

Miles is very cute,
Daniel is absolutely awesome,
but Cam is so freaking hot!

Oops, almost forgot... this 2nd book in the series is a really enjoyable read :) ( )

Het orgineel van mijn review kan je vinden op mijn blog:

Na Fallen gelezen te hebben ontkom je er niet aan om Kwelling te gaan lezen.
Het verhaal ontwikkelt zich in een rap tempo, er word duidelijk naar een apotheose toegewerkt.
Aan het einde van het boek moet je er deel 3 gaan lezen.
Hoewel veel vragen beantwoord zijn, blijf je er toch nog met een aantal zitten.

Was Luce in deel 1 een *doetje*, in deel 2 ontwikkelt ze zich als mens.
Ze word zelfstandiger, laat zich niet alles meer aanpraten en neemt haar eigen beslissingen.
Ze word een sterker en vastberadener persoon.
Zelfs de vanzelfsprekende liefde tussen Luce en Daniël vind ze niet zo zelfsprekend meer.

Kwelling is echt een onderdeel van de serie
Je moet Fallen gelezen hebben. Kwelling eindigt daar waar waarschijnlijk deel 3 begint.

Persoonlijk vind ik Kwelling spannender en leuker om te lezen,
De cover bracht me niet veel nieuws, maar dat deed het verhaal wel!
“Because love and hate were supposed to stand cleanly on opposite sides of the spectrum. The division seemed as clear as...well, angels and demons would once have seemed to her. Not anymore.” ( )

This was not near as good as the first in the series....I'm really hoping that the next in the series redeems this one! ( )
