This was another Kindle deal for me and as I was already hooked on the series. Thank goodness for the deals!
What I liked: Rylee is dealing with a bunch of crap. She's not sure what's going on with O'Shea, her best friend has turned into a raving lunatic and betrayed her and Giselle is fading. On top of that, Agent Valley wants Rylee to go to England to help find young terminally ill children who are missing.
So that is the premice in a nutshell without all the angst and chaotic happenings Rylee keeps getting into. So, like many reviewers, I found Rylee a bit harsh in this edition. Then I started thinking, I mean she has a lot on her plate and who wouldn't be bi*chy about everything that is happening in her life and not in a good way. I felt this was more of a transitional book to introduce more characters and plot lines.
One thing I will say, Raising Innocence is action packed and kept my attention. I may not have liked how Rylee was acting but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the world Ms Mayer continues to build. While the characters didn't all act the way I wanted them to, I couldn't stop reading.
What I didn't like: I was a bit unsure and not overly impressed with a few of the new characters. I couldn't figure out how they are going to fit into the story once Rylee goes back to America. I'm still not sure how that is going to work. It felt like those characters were just invented for this particular book. We'll see, I guess.
So, even though this wasn't my favorite book, it did serve it's purpose in moving the storyline along and introduced a few very interesting characters.
