After a disappointing book 2, book 3 blew my socks off. It was well written, no info dumps and no repetitive detailing. This book is darker than the other two, and for good reason. The struggles the main characters deal with feel real and a beautifully expressed. The very first sentence grabs you, and I wasn't able to put the book down, finishing it in about four hours of solid reading. I love the way Bev was written, and what's not to love about Hudson? Book 1 is still my favorite so far (I think I may have a thing for Noah...), but this book really made me hungry for the series again.
