I was disappointed by this story. The concept was interesting, but I felt it was poorly carried out. While the author had a beautiful way with words, the pacing was incredibly slow, and many scenes were explained in narrative after the fact instead of letting the reader experience them as they happened. I was also not a fan of the twist, especially since the overly supernatural/fantastical elements were not hinted at in the book description. Finally, I was disappointed by the overly-sensationalized emotions that pretty much amounted to heightened lust in a YA book.
I do feel the author portrayed Erik's character in a way that was fairly consistent with the original novel, so kudos to her for doing her research. And really, the way she wove together the connection between the main characters and the original characters was interesting and obviously took a lot of work. I just wish it had been executed in a different manner.
The narration was superb.
