I was excited when I heard that this book was mostly about Simon. I thought that Simon was one of the more interesting characters in the series, and I wanted to know how he would adjust to being a vampire.
Unfortunately, I had a very difficult time staying interested in this book. The parts that were about Simon were interesting, but there wasn't a lot going on in the story. I think this series should have probably stayed a trilogy. It felt like the author wanted to write a fourth book but didn't have enough ideas to fill the pages. This book was missing the action that made the other books entertaining. There wasn't much of a plot. The book was mostly fluff, angst, (fluffy angst?), and rehashing conversations that took place in previous books. It didn't feel like anything new happened.
