I've had this one in my book pile for over a month. I bought it because I'd heard that Lauren was a great writer, but I had a ton of other books I had promised I'd read first. Anyway, I finally got to the book on 12/21/10 and literally could not put it down. Took it with me to the doctors office, grocery store, bathroom (LOL), etc. Basically, anywhere that I might have a minute to keep reading.She really got me because I had no idea what was going to happen. You spend half the book trying to figure out who Daniel is and why he keeps pushing her away. I was so wrapped up in this one that I can't wait to read Torment! I also went after Lauren for an interview. She'll be featured on my website in January 2011! http://www.yafantasyguide.comBottom Line: If you like dark and mysterious romance then give this YA fantasy a read!
