The last 50 pages almost make up for slogging through the first 200.

The concept is good, but the author relies way too heavily on the old diary to move the "secret" along, and as a result the main "secret" is totally obvious. Seriously, does the author think that readers are so stupid as to not make the connection between "S" and "Sebastian"?

It follows the often-used paranormal romance model in which a normal girl tries to uncover the mystery about a hot guy who clearly isn't what he seems. But in this case, the mystery is too obvious because of the diary.

The pacing is also super-slow and none of the characters are particularly well-developed. You've got a group of generic "mean popular girls", a generic hot guy and a generic shy girl.

However, the paranormal mythology of the book is good and unique. And the heroine gets pretty good by the end of the book.

I really liked this book! The dilemma with loving Sebastian and what he will become seemed like a better way to create drama in a story. Versus just plain drama where a girl or boy is suspecting cheating or something lame like that. I can't wait to read the next books!

I thought the book was very good

im mad i actually read the first 150pages. this book was so hard to get thru up til then, no way am i reading the rest of the book. and tis coming from someone who refuses to put a book down after i've started it. i just can NOT finish this book

This book was actually better than I expected. Perhaps it was just me, but I was hooked from the beginning, and it brought me through the more boring sections. Although the plot was highly predictable from the beginning, I still found myself reading until the end. All in all, you'll find me reading the sequel.

I caught my breath. He really was extraordinary, so pale and still and intense.

The boy moved closer to me and studied me with unnaturally bright eyes. I felt his cool breath on my cheek. Then he reached out and touched a strand of my wet hair and whispered, "How do you know what is waiting in this valley for a girl from the wil sea"

"Don't worry ; you'll get home safely tonight." He grinned and mounted his horse. " But we'll meet again, i promise you!"

"If Sarah was right, I was being contacted by the spirit of a dead Victiorian girl who looked so much like me we could be mistaken for sisters. And she was warning me to stay away from Sebastian."
