Not too sure what to think of this... firstly, I'll say that it definitely should NOT be in the young adult section.

I guess overall, the story & characters were really interesting; I got pretty into it, really. I'm curious about what'll happen in the next book.

However, the last... maybe third of the book took a decidedly dark turn with some rather graphic scenes that'd be worthy of an 18A rating. It was enough to make me seriously think of putting it down & forgetting about it.

That said, I did finish it, & I begrudgingly will probably read the next book in the series.... *sigh* you know what they say about curiosity killing the cat....I just hope it doesn't stay so dark.
