My Review ❈❈❈❈❈
Oh yeah, right up on my favorites shelf!! This book was so good! I love this whole story! It is scary and beautiful all at the same time. Merrick *sigh* Merrick is just amazing!! And Sherry just needed someone who loved her enough to make her see what a wonderful and loving person she is. I have actually really grown to love all the characters and I cannot wait to see how they all grow and change even more as the story goes on! I could gush a little more about how wonderful this was but right now I'm too excited to get started on Uprising!!
