I guess I had two major issues with this book:1) it was too drawn out. this actually made me put down the book a couple of times. i can't even believe i'm gonna say this, but fewer pages would have done the story good; and2) cate. i felt it was a way too convenient character. the story had no elements of fantasy or paranormal, and them bam - there she was, a god-like creature to save te day.Other than that I really enjoyed reading this story: the writing style is pleasing and the characters are interesting - I specially liked Wulfgar, can't wait to read his story!
