I decided to read this book by looking at a goodreads.com listopia for young adult books. This series was in the top 25 of a list that also included A Wrinkle in Time, The Giver, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Holes, The Golden Compass, The Outsiders and Twilight Series. All of which I have read, most enjoyed. So I checked it out from the library. It was a fun read at times. The story line was similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I love. The writing was so bad, there were times that I couldn't quite imagine what was going on because of holes in the writing.
As always, this isn't really stopping me. I'm now half way done with book 2...City of Ashes.
