Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who?
This is the first time I've read a YA book that held the fairy tale vibe to it. I love the whole idea of more books like this, but I was back and forth on Devoured.
I got that Megan was supposed to be Snow White in the story. But besides maybe two other characters, I have no clue who the others were supposed to be. Or if they even were part of the fairy tale mix. (Note: I was informed in a comment that this was not a re-telling of Snow White. But when reading, that's the vibe I got from it. *shrugs*) Besides Megan and Luke though, the rest of the characters weren't really developed. Half of the time I felt like there were just random voices being thrown in everywhere. Also when certain events happened, Megan's emotions were seriously lacking. I felt it was hard to connect to a character like that.
The setting of the story was great. I loved how Megan worked a theme park called Land of Enchantment. It really gave the story more of a fairy tale vibe. Megan's dead sister, Remy, who was always poking around made for some creepy scenes. I also liked the talking mirror part as well. I guess my main thing besides side characters is I wished the book was more paced out. The beginning was thrown together so quickly and the ending - while the twists and surprises were great - it was all crammed together at the end. All in all, not too bad of a read and I liked it a lot better than her other two.
