I really don't know why I don't love this series. There's plenty of decent creepiness and a great heroine, I just... don't love it. Maybe Julianna Baggott has simply ruined eerie post-apocalyptic worlds for me by making hers too amazingly deliciously fantastic (if you haven't read Pure yet, I suggest you drop everything, track it down and read it. Now), so I expect too much from other books now. Kept finding myself skipping parts and having to re-read again. Those covers are gorgeous though! (maybe that's part of the disappointment?
