All of the characters in this book were extremely well true to life. Well rounded would be the technical term, but I like "true to life" better because I think it describes the way you have clear visual images of these characters and what they're doing at any given moment. Anna is not the overly altruistic YA heroine. She's somewhat self centered but still cares about other people--human. Etienne is not a perfect hero either, but that's what makes him appealing. And all of the secondary characters were just as well developed. The voice is interesting and engaging. I couldn't put this book down, but at the same time I was annoyed that it was taking Anna and Etienne so long to get together and found a million places where they should have gotten together. That's my only real complaint with the book--it just took too long for them to get together and got to the point where they should just decide to be together or quit talking already. I liked the ending. This was a cute book. It's probably the best contemp I've ever read, but I think I'm still more of a paranormal kinda girl ;).
