I am going to agree with those who have come before me. This book was in need of editing.
How did I find so many YA books? I don't know but I seem to be in a strange slump...
The author could choose to go back, add some umph to this book, edit it, and it would be awesome! But as it is, unedited, underdeveloped characters, confusing schemes and all, it isn't that good.
If you are younger, don't understand grammar really well, and are looking for a weird Harry Potter meets the Vampire Diaries...this could be for you. It is an easy and quick read.
Not much to say for the book. It wasn't terrible but I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends.
