This book as a little lack luster for me. The beginning they were both VERY whiny and I just didn’t like them together at all. The villain in this book I figured out right away, it was very predictable. The resolutions for some of the plot lines seemed to happen very quickly except for a few (Neil, Sydney’s dad, the cure). We don’t really get to see any solid research on Spirit and what it can do – including the Strigoi cure and what that means. There was no follow-up with Sydney’s family at the very end, I wanted to see what happened with Zoe and if her dad actually kept up his end of the deal. Also why didn’t Marcus and Sydney fight harder to change the Alchemists?! They made no moves to stop the Warriors of Light either. Just left both groups to do whatever they’ve been doing with just a deal to leave them alone. So selfish!! Also the Vampires knowing what is happening with both groups and doing nothing about it…that made me pissed off too. We also never know what happens with Lissa’s new law that doesn’t require her to have 1 living relative. Nothing is resolved with that!!!
