I can't believe the angle that Dan wells took with this book. I was so disappointing. I suppose I should have seen it coming as I really didn't love the second book.

I felt like Wells completely disregarded everything he had built up in the previous two books. It was like John had lost most of his psychopathic tenancies. Yeah sure he is still sort of fantasizing about embalming his female interests but that's about it.

All of his "rules" seem to have been thrown out the window. He's so busy battling these demons that his inner demons seem to have disappeared. Maybe that was the point. I'm beginning to think that John was never really a sociopath. Merely another misunderstood weird and awkward teen.

I found the whole book just two predictable. Which sort of leads me to asking why John hadn't figured it all out earlier seen as he's so perceptive?

Overall I felt this series could have been so much more. The demon hunting added nothing for me. It made the whole thing too YA for me. I think Johns struggles with normal life alone would have been enough to make a gripping story.

If your a fan of paranormal YA then I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy in this series but others will find it too simplified and lacking in the character growth and story progression side of things
