Oh boy, did this book ever not do it for me. I love the way it looks--just like I loved the appearance of Shiver. This one has actual green print, and the cover is lovely. I still didn't care about the characters, the concept is clever, and I think that enough attention is paid to the science behind the shape-shifting that this actually qualifies as a science fiction book.
I didn't like the first book, and I wasn't really excited to read this one, so this is not exactly a fair and unbiased review. I went in not caring. I'm still suggesting this series to kids who loved Twilight though, and I'm sure they're having entirely different experiences that I.
