I have to say, I am pretty surprised that this book has such a high rating. It is, by far, one of the most poorly written books I've ever read. The story, from what I could make of it, might have had promise to be something interesting. But, reading this book, it felt like one of those writing games that people play: you write one paragraph and pass it to someone else. Then, they write one and pass it to another person...and so on. No cohesion at all.What's more aggravating, the grammar and spelling errors were terrible. At least 3 times, I say the word "angels" spelled "angles". In chapter 15, the character Peter was referred to as Bill (a totally different character)...I had to read that sentence 3 times to clear up my confusion and realize the error. The author jumps from 1st to 3rd person narrative in the same paragraphs. And from different POV's from different characters, also in the same paragraphs. Not only was it confusing, it was irritating how simple-minded she must expect the reader to be. Sentences were written in short and choppy form and dialogue was written in a way that sounded condescending to the reader...one of those "now, let me talk really slowly and with short words so you can understand". Argh...terrible. Just terrible. I've read some bad books and still, out of curiosity, gone back to read the sequel. However, there is no way I'd ever read the rest of this series.
