The book was okay— not as good as the first i would say. It certainly felt like a drag at the beginning and middle, but finally started picking up at the end. I find Astley a sweetheart, but still team Nick! Lets see if that switches in the next 2 books....

A really good, fun, captivating read :) I loved the plot, and couldn't put the book down. I liked the introduction of Astley, especially since it put a new perspective on the intentions and actions of pixies. Very good book, I definitely enjoyed reading it!

aha the second book, good as the first but with more killing pixes. another good read, a real pleasure. but im starting to like Astly more than NIck, i cant help it.

This book really engages me - and not always in a good way. There are times where I get so frustrated with the characters and the decisions they make, but the author does a good job bringing them to life, and making you believe that they have some sense and may be able to succeed someway or how. But be prepared for the plot twists.

Great book!!!! Definitely as good as the first book, which was AMAZING! Astley is a great character.

This is a good book. It drags on a little at the beginning but still has an interesting subject. Superb ending though! Carrie Jones really gave it a killer ending.

this book is exceptionally above average, though it's not the best book I've ever read.

Enjoyable read, and no vampires! I am concerned that Jones has painted her love triangle into a corner.
