I quite liked this second installment this time around. The first time I read it I didn't think it was that great, but then I don't think I paid all that much attention.
I really loved Leslie and felt all the stuff he was going through. I couldn't believe what an ass her brother is and what her family life was about.
I liked her relationship with both Niall and also Irial. She made Irial feel something for god knows how long, and that itself was a rarity. The ending of the book was nice, with Leslie finally able to be happy and living a normal life which is all she wanted.
I felt she had a connection to both guys, but in the end she had to follow her own path, and she wasn't cut out for this other world that they belonged.
