    A few minutes after I finished the book I gave it a 4 star rating on Goodreads, after sitting for a while and thinking it over I had to switch it down to a 3 star rating First let me say this I read the book in less than 12 hours I was engrossed from page one until the end, my favorite chapters were those from Tara s pov, the ones telling her tale of what happened to her and the mysterious man Hiero pronounc...
