Way too much sex.
The sex and manipulation is too stereotypical. Very disappointing that this book was not appropriate for teens after the Godling Chronicles was such an excellent read.
The main female character, Lilanora, is basically presented as a whore who teases and beds the main male characters on a whim almost as soon as she is introduced. She cruelly torments Cat who is still in love with Ethan who is oblivious. Men aren't this thick and usually figure out when they are being played, but not our hero. It is hard to root for a hero who is this slow...Although the end puts the two women on a more even playing field, Lilanora is hardly taken to task for anything she has done to the friendship of the other three primary characters. It is difficult to read Lilanora's activities and treatment of others and see her as one of the good guys.
Based on my experience with previous books by Anderson, I was embarrassed for recommending this book to family members before I read it myself. I was furious when I was called by family members who informed me that this book was not what I thought it was... I lost count of "F" bombs and various forms of crude genital references. After reading it myself, I had to apologize for the recommendation.
Not YA, but the story is YA stuff.
