I know what you mean! Even when he became somewhat nicer after meeting Carly he is still not my favorite character!
Yes Adam was quite stupid and disturbing I think and that is not a character of a YA that people generally invest upon.
Yeah, exactly. I don't know how this book got put in the YA category. I felt it was not appropriate for young adults, and especially for teenagers! :confusion-shrug:
Absolutely!

What are your thoughts, based on this book, for the future of the Saga? Do you think it will get better? Will Adam continue to change or be brought challenges, do you think his past or anything will test him to go back and challenge his mental health?
Will Carly become someone different or be challenged by her new future?
Thoughts or ideas??
I think that the next few books will mainly revolve around Carly and Adam's "relationship" with a few ups and downs that will most likely result in a "love conquers all" type thing... I would hope that Adam's past would come back to haunt him but I am not sure the author has any interest in holding him accountable for his actions, nor in dealing with his mental health... I'm not quite sure if I will read the next books...
Yes. That is a bit of a concern for me, to be honest. Adam's mental health should be addressed in some way, or him and Carly have a breaking point. Not sure, but a few things need to be addressed. For sure. I want to like the book completely and be excited for the next series of books...but some things need to again, be addressed and dealt with.

Adam's past should catch up with him and see how well he deals with it. It's an expectation for him to be wiser and more powerful as tougher challenges are thrown his way. Carly should be his sanity.

I just can't deal with the writing style. It was choppy in its writing patterns, and nothing really happened until the last part of the book. I don't know how well this book saga will do in the future.

I think Adam will definitely struggle with the goodness and darkness within him. It's definitely going to happen especially now that Dauma's dead I feel like the temptation to darkness will be greater because he won't have someone to keep him in line. No offense to Carly of course.

I think Carly will step into leadership very well. She has all the right qualities.

Agreed, Adam didn't face any repercussions for what he did in the first book when at the start it seemed to be a somewhat big aspect of the plot.

I'm sure Carly is going to have many flashbacks to her mother. I think Adam will continue to learn to love and be a better person. Together, and with their group of friends, they'll face new challenges.

I am really curious to see whether this will be the case. Adam is a very unpredictable character and I wonder if he will keep it up to the very end.
