I was disappointed in this one. I expected it to be better. I found it a little hard to follow in the beginning. The further I got into it though it did improve but over all ...it was ok.
I didn't like it nor dislike it. The only thing I could really complain about is that, during the very last part of the book, Clare seemed unrealistic.
