Um. I didn't hate this, but I didn't love it, either. I think it has a bit of that annoying thing where the world just feels too small. Does that make sense? The love story is fine, and I liked the characters well enough that if I remember to, I'll probably continue with the series (it takes less than a day to read one of these things, you know?), but I'm not gonna pre-order it from Amazon or anything.
