This entire series was a fast, easy read. I finished a book a day and read the entire thing in four days. And I was pleasantly surprised. It was much better than I expected, spooky, eerie, very sad in spots, and (although I'll probably get some negative comments for this) in my opinion, it was superior to Twilight.
I'd put off reading any of Ms. Cusick's books because I thought they'd be nothing but teenage fluff, like the above-mentioned Twilight, but it was actually quite a bit darker, and I was glad.
It took me a while, however, to warm up to it. In the first book, I found the plot cliche: girl loses her family and must go to live with distant relatives she barely knows, and spooky things ensue...I've read it a hundred times.
I also didn't care for Lucy at first. She seemed a little bit spineless, prone to breaking down into hysterics at the drop of a hat and constantly whining that nobody understands her. (Who in this world feels understood?)
But by the third and fourth book, Lucy was finding her strength and her courage, and I was happy to see it. I also loved the character of Dakota Montana,who dresses like a thrift store waif and in her own words, (believes in everything supernatural). She's the best friend who's there when needed and forgives in a heartbeat. Who does need more friends like that?
I found Father Matt a little too good to be true, so I was suspicious of him right off the bat. I thought Byron would have been a great character if he'd been in the story longer.
Finally, I loved that the Unseen didn't try to pass for human and go to high school. He knew he was evil, and he enjoyed it. He was dark and menacing, and I loved him. Let's hear it for self-respecting vampires!
WOW! This is truly the only word that I can come up with at the moment to describe what I'm feeling. I just now finished this book and I am overwhelmed with emotions. This was the last book to the Unseen series and all I have to say is that this series was amazing. I was hardly ever bored from reading these and I always seemed to be on my toes. The first two books were a little slow, but by number three and four, I was taken on a suspense roller coaster. The fourth book was my favorite out of them all because it was constantly climactic, and was building suspense the entire way through. I was astonished at one point in the book when the story line took a drastic turn. I'd hate to spoil this for anyone, so let me just say that if you enjoy horror, suspense, and a great mystery, you absolutely have to read this series. Overall the whole series gets 5 stars from me. Loved it~! (:
I loved how the series didn't reveal the secrets until the end of the 4th book. I conclude that the wolf beasts were not all bad. There was a good and bad side as is true with most things. I do believe that the bad side was destroyed in the end, and the good side had won the battle. I was a little confused by the shape shifter comment, but I still believe he was the "good guy". I would love for a 5th book to be published to describe her transformation as well as her new life. I definitely recommend these books for anyone who's a Cusick fan!
This was a Christmas present for my grand daughter she was very happy with it as she had already read the prior books in the set

[Taken from my blog.]

It's been a few weeks since I read this (maybe more, actually), so some of my emotions for it have lessened in intensity. So, sorry for that.
This was the third and last parts of the series, and I had more hopes for it than I received. The messy wording and usage of ellipses and italics was still very much present. The italics were probably the part that I didn't mind the most; but there was still a huge amount used, and I'm sure it could annoy others.
And then there's Lucy. She annoyed me so much. At the end of the second book, she sounded like she was accepting things and moving forward, but instead she proceeded to change nothing. She was still hesitant and denied everything (until the very end), and even when her friend tried to convince her otherwise, she denied things. I don't... I don't understand why the villain was after her. Because she's easy and fun to play with, I guess? She's not smart, so that couldn't be it.
Also, she felt a lot for Gran and Byron, and I felt that that was a little fast. She didn't really get to know either of them, but was still all but actually in love with Byron and protective of Gran. I honestly don't see what everyone likes about her, or why they think she's so special. She's really not. There were more people than I thought in love with her by the end, and I just don't get it.
The plot was actually pretty good, though. There were quite a few more complications thrown in, some of which I wasn't expecting. Or, at least, the amount of which I wasn't expecting. Although I didn't quite understand what Lucy had to do with the family feud. (Maybe she was just another thing they were fighting over? Or perhaps it's just fuzzy in my mind?)
Again, the biggest thing that bothered me was Lucy. She was dumb. And several other characters would have been a better protagonist. Byron's sister or Dakota, for example.
And the ending! I don't want to spoil it, but it frustrates me beyond belief. I couldn't understand why Lucy thought what she was doing was a good idea, since it was very obviously not. Although, I kind of did like the ending, no matter how much her stupidity frustrates me, because she kind of deserved it. She even asked for it, for God's sake.
I don't know what else to say about it. I'm frustrated, and while it was kind of torturous to read at times, the ending bumped the rating up a bit. I hate Lucy and I kind of want to punch her in the face or something because she is so dumb. I did kind of like the villain and the twists that were thrown in. I could probably continue to rant about my hate for Lucy, but it would get repetitive and probably boring (as my frustration, in my head, is just nonsensical not-actual-words-but-sounds to express my feelings), so I'm not going to do that.
(Sidenote: Aren't the covers on the original version of the books, when they were first released separately, terrible? It goes really well with the books, though, as it is basically hinting that this is going to be one of those cheesy, maybe stereotypical mystery-horror books.)
