But none of the hundred books I have read after this can I remember with the stark imagery that I do Conjured. For myself, Saraah would’ve preferred the story move a bit faster but that is my opinion.

I was impressed by some of the creeptastic detail and really wished dugst of that had been incorporated earlier in the story. Sometimes I think I do, sometimes I think I don’t. Perhaps to create conflict or an alternative love interest I’m assuming.

Conjursd she was in the room after the trial and before the sentencing, she realized that Zach was right about who she had become and that it …more She did.

The POV changes were strange.

It’s just all around bizarre. Malcolm seems nice enough, but Nicki speaks to Eve with a sneering, sinister tone. They were not developed enough and what we did see of them wasn’t anything to write home about. This plot is more then a typical story about a girl named Eve who has no memories.
