Where to begin with this train wreck in print. Well, I guess we could start with the main idea of the book, the romance. First of all, where was it? The time that the two main characters, Cassia and Ky, spent together was hardly romance worthy. There was too much inequality and secrecy between the pair that their love was clouded and frayed. Not to mention the awkward incorporation of this rebellion that was going on. Is it good or bad? Ally, you need to make a decision. Plus the strange, unexplained past of Ky that ceased to intrigue the reader, and made me roll my eyes, was completely unnecessary. Come on, Ally, your first book was good, and now you leave the reader with Crossed? Better luck next time.
