** spoiler alert ** I was not hooked from the beginning, but it turns better (although sometimes I still was more interested in my split ends than in the story). It wasn't creepy and spooky as I was hoping, but it was pretty gory, which I loved. All characters were likeable, including the jocks, no idea why I think that.
Even his friends think this, but to me Cas was very Buffy the Ghost Slayer. Thomas was Willow-ish; Carmel kinda like Zander, Anna was Angel-like... Am I just a Buffy-fangirl or was it like this?
I guess that what disappointed me a little bit was the romance. Not that I disliked it, but it changed the perspective I had of this book. And I was also kind of bothered by the murder of Tybalt. I thought the cat was going to be a sidekick or whatever, but he was just a regular cat.
Although I don't usually read the following book of a series, I will this time. It ends well, but in a way that makes you want to know what will happen next.
Score... Mary: 1 ; Anna: 0
