I am very conflicted about this book. I like the plot, and the (mostly) likeable characters. The main characters are very well developed. However, there are many incomplete sentences, run-on sentences, and other grammatical errors. I feel that these problems disrupt the flow of the story. Therefore, my enjoyment is inhibited.
Jackson grabs me with the cliffhanger, so I have decided to purchase the second book in this duet, (Drowning to Breathe). I am drawn to these characters, and I want to follow them to the conclusion of their story.
Taking into account all of these things, I rate this book 3 stars.
