Gah!!! I keep promising myself not to start anymore series until every book is out, because cliffhangers kill me. This one killed me dead, but it was worth it. I absolutely loved the evolution of Allyson and what she learned about herself. I'm not typically a fan of coming-of-age but this story sucked me in and I read it in a day, heart thumping for her and what she would do. So beautiful, and the use of Shakespeare was so well done I could cry. If you haven't read this book yet, you absolutely must, but wait until October so you can read the next one immediately. Good Lord, I wish I would have done it that way.
