I enjoyed the fast paced plot of this book. The price of being plot driven may have been less developed characters than similar books in this genre. I didn't feel like I really knew the characters enough to really bond with them. I think if I knew Alex better, I would have been more engaged but she seemed flat and kind of needy which didn't fit with who I felt she was supposed to be. That being said, I never felt like not finishing the book so the story was there even when the characters weren't. I would like to read other books by this author.
