3.5 or 4 starsOh, boy. This book right here, has such a sad depressing ass scene near the end. I actually cried, it's so heartbreaking. But I liked this one even though it's not as great as the first one, it's fun when things aren't moving too fast and Alina isn't being annoyingly crazy. The Darkling is as sexy as ever too.Full review to come.
