All in all it's just a very bad book and I hope Ian doesn't do it.
You are right. Infact, i read this book because i came to know that it was a fan-fiction of twilight. But there was no originality and everything simply ripped off from twilight book and claiming owns by giving new name. Anastasia is simply blank character who don't have her own mind and i really hate such characters.
But the hype created for this book made me eager to read it. I could hardly finish the whole book and could not read full. Every book was read half by me. The only part I liked was the email conversation in the first book and the third book. That's it. Rest everything is plain boring and waste of time.
