This book I have noticed on the character competition between Jace (Mortal Instruments) and Zach (Shade) and I immedietly thought how could anyone compete with Jace? I would expect Dimitri, Patch or someone... but not an unknown character :) That's why I vowed I will pick this book up and here I am, months later, reading it.I liked it. I didn't quite love it, but it was ok. The main problem I had was Aura's mourning. Ok, I know she loved her boyfriend, but I had a feeling she loved him more when he was dead, than when he was alive... the whole "the night" thing was so forced to me - in her part anyway... Though, Logan too, took Aura for granted.Zach was really sweet character. He was nice to Aura, to everyone, he was smart and there was something mysterius about him - what he does tell Aura at the second half of the book.I will read the sequel, to see what happens with Aura and Zach, I really hope she won't be mourning so much anymore.
