There is so much I don't understand about this book. Why was it single POV unlike the previous two books in the series? Why wasn't it even 300 pages when the previous one was over 600? Honestly I don't think this book should have existed and it felt like a prequel to the final book which wasn't even announced before the release of this one. Bianca's character arc was completely ruined for me and felt like a huge cop out, the romance was outshined by everything else happening, rushed and underdeveloped. I feel nothing for this couple. The mystery aspect is a weird addition and not well done. Overall, a huge disappointment to what could have been a great ending to a series but is now just a way to get readers to buy two books instead of one.
