Review: Torn

Summary:Swirling black descends like ravens, large enough to block the glow of the streetlights. A dull roar starts like a train on the 'L', a far-away rumbling that grows louder as it pulls closer, until it's directly overhead and you feel it in your chest, except this doesn't pass you by. Verity, white-faced and eyes blazing, shouts through the din, "Run, Mo!"
Mo Fitzgerald knows about secrets. But when she witnesses her best friend's murder, she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have guessed. To find the answers she needs and the vengeance she craves, Mo—quiet, ordinary, unmagical Mo—will have to enter a world of raw magic and shifting alliances. And she'll have to choose between two very different, equally dangerous guys—protective, duty-bound Colin and brash, mysterious Luc. One wants to save her, one wants to claim her. Which would you choose?

Review: This book was sent to me  from Kensington, and I had been hearing so much good things about it, it was creating quite the buzz. I have a hard time writing this review because I honestly can't say one way or another wether I liked the book or not. There were things about the book that I liked, such as: the magic, the boys, the love triangle, and the complete like-ability of the main character "Mo". When it came down to discussing the magic and the "lines" that the book is centered around, it got to the point where I was so confused I wouldn't even be reading those parts thoughtfully. I would read them while thinking of other things so if you were to ask me what I just read i'd probably just stare at you confused. But like I said I can't decide if I liked it or not, there were parts I liked and parts I didn't. Will I read the next one? Probably. Would I recommend this book? Probably not. It wasn't a bad book, not at all, it was written well and the characters are all unique and likable in their own way. It's just not something I could say I loved.
