The saving grace for this book is the second half. Outside of that I really did not care for it. Perhaps it was because the beginning of the book kept confusing me thus it was hard for me to get into. This book took me two weeks to read while the others I read in an afternoon! I mean I had to really struggle and finish this one.
Johnny feels a bit like a wuss and his whatever you need Red is getting old. Menessos with his show me your power and he wants to be with her is just overkill. I am not even sure how I feel about Persephone. Initially I liked her because she was so passionate about doing the right thing but now I wish she could find a way to get smarter and wiser much faster.
