I find it hard to care for a character when she (Elena) is so unlikable. She is shallow and self-serving but EVERYONE seems to love her and pledge to do anything for her. When she dies everyone is so upset but they keep talking about her pure soul. Pure soul? The first couple of books she manipulates EVERY boy she meets and takes advantage of them, poor little Matt. She finds pleasure in taking advantage of them and doesn't see anything wrong with it. She is also bossy and expects everyone to agree with her. How is this a pure soul?
Once you get past the first few unappealing books you get to The Return books. They are better, I like the added weird fantasy stuff.
I am finishing this series because I want to see how it turns out but to give a rating I would say........just eh
2 Stars is GENEROUS!!
I guess this turned into a book review, oops :)
