For almost two years I have been bombarded by amazing reviews of this book. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed it extremely. So, when I saw it in the bookstore a few days ago I knew I needed to have it and I knew I needed to read it immediately.

At first I wasn’t quite impressed, it was a regular book with nothing special about it. I was confused about many things, and I guess that was intended, but it annoyed and frustrated me quite a lot.

As the plot progressed and more and more got revealed, I actually grew even more confused. I had some ideas of what actually happened to Cadence, but the story did not actually interest me enough to get fully involved – and that is something I realize now while writing this review.

The book isn’t bad, but I feel the plot twist was not done quite well. Some things remained unclear to me and when I closed the book an unfamiliar feeling of confusion overwhelmed me.
