The plot was so-so until the last 25% percent of the book. By then, I started to hate laurel with a passion. It might probably have something to do with my dislike of faery genres. When they are all vain, selfish, beautiful, and with wings, that just unleashes my inner b*tch. I had thought the writing might've at least sufficed to hold my attention till the end but the characters are just too despicable for me to stand. My likeable faerie list so far only contains Stiefvater's Ballad. The rest are down the drain and unfinished like this book here.
