This book had one of the most unsatisfying ending I've read in a LONG time. It was SO ambiguous. Each person just went off on their own. Not good closure. Also, so much was made of the prophecy and then nothing happened. It felt very weak. I didn't like the tension between Issa and Kellin...especially when their relationship took a completely different turn. There was also a lot of darkness and killing. So much poison?! The world building needed help and certain things weren't explained well. I didn't understand the culture or world until halfway into the book. It was kinda annoying. On the good side (because there were things I liked about this book) I did stay interested enough to finish the book and I did love the cover. But overall it was a disappointment.
