Favourite character: well im going to say characters lol obviously Grace- i guess because she has certain elements of the same character as Bella Swan and Sam, then isabel jacks sister just becuase even though to begin with she is mildly annoying, in the end she becomes kind of funny and caring.

What did you enjoy most about the book?
i'm totally team Vampire all the way!! :lol: but i was intrigued by this book it explored a different kind of werewolf to those in Twilight, the change is based on the old story of being bitten by a werewolf changes you. i loved the way the story was told through the point of views of both of the main characters. The way that it changed from chapter to chapter between Sam and Grace, the story still flowed well and at the same time gave you an insight into what both characters are going through and thinking. i also loved the fact that sam made up songs... well lyrics to describe his feelings, sounds as though it'd be cringey and a bit cheesy but it really wasn't.
i hate that i keep comparing it to Twilight because they are two different authors and books however they are similar themes within the stories i.e. human girl falls for i guess mythical creature and the consequences of this, so its kind of difficult not to compare :)

What did you like least?
just some of the characters but id say thats the way that stiefvater meant it, i really disliked Jack he was obnoxious :lol:
aside from that i can't really think of anything havent really read it since last year need to read it again to refresh my memory :)
