The author didn't promise too much. This novel was really "unputdownable".
With lots of twists and interesting turns of events, such a well developed main character -- she almost felt alive. This makes the reader always ask for more and more and after finishing book 1, yes, I want more and I can't wait to read more about Elaine. I really hope she'll end up with Nick and they'll be fine.
All in all, I enjoyed this novel a lot.
