This novel was extremely difficult to get into - it didn't really grab you and there wasn't much going on. There are 389 pages but all the exciting things that really make the story gripping and fun (all the things that stop you falling asleep haha) started happening at around page 200.
The cover, though? I love it! It's much better than the US edition. It's so bright, and it really stands out. The photo doesn't do the real cover justice. It's so shiny and glossy....basically, the perfect cover, although it doesn't really tell you much about the story itself.
Razo, the main character Rin's brother, is my favourite character. He's funny and brave and he knows how to make Rin feel better when she's scared/sad. He sounds like the perfect brother. He's cool! :O)
I think I give this book 3/5. Very slow to get into, and even though it was a unique storyline, it didn't really pull me into the story at all. I wouldn't really recommend this.
