I didn't even realize this was a series. Maybe the fact that I hadn't read the first one is why I spent three whole days trying to get through it. It was slightly interesting, but it felt like there were too many characters coming in from different directions. If they were from previous books, then it wouldn't have been so bad. Besides that, I feel like the reason behind the drama seemed a little out there. It wasn't something I ever would have even thought of sicne there were so few clues pointing in that direction. I'm not sure if I'll try and go back and read the first ones or not.
