I felt this story had a solid premise but as others have commented about, it dragged and was slow in several parts. Overall I felt the background story, the characters, had a really good basis. But that too much of the book was 'filler' that could have been used to give the characters more than their two dimensional feel. Alot of the language felt odd for teenagers to use. Alot of the reactions were under or over exaggerated, especially for Tate. She either has a really good theory of what's going on in the town and is angry over it or totally oblivious when proof is presented to her, it felt silly. It was also very confusing what sort of relationship Macky and Tate really had throughout the book, which was frustrating. I didn't know if I should like her or be wary that she was just using him. It wasn't consistent. Macky's personality was timid and frail at one point and then BAM! heroic and a confident jock the next, then back to being an uncertain outcast teenager again. There was an attempt at character growth but it came in jolts which didn't fit the slow pace of the the rest of the book.
Like I said, I felt this was a great start, very interesting premise, and I didn't hate it. But it felt more like a rough draft then a final revision of a story.
Having said all that I would still love to see a continuation or another attempt at the story, because I do think the premise is a very interesting one, and deserves more attention.

This story has it's moments, but i felt like the conclusion was too predictable. If you enjoy myths and paranormal story lines. This story is right up your alley, but i just could not relate to the character and the plot felt like it had too many ideas jammed into it. The narrator was pretty good. Not the most exciting, but he was definitely able to handle all the different characters.
