Having devoured all 3 previous books in the Jessica Darling series, I was really looking forward to reading this installment. However, this just wasn't up to par with the previous books.
The way this book was written, from the point of view of Jessica keeping a diary of sorts in two notebooks for Marcus, just didn't work for me. It didn't flow as easily as the previous novels, and I found it difficult to get into the book. At times, the dialogue seemed contrived and I found it hard to believe Jessica was actually writing it in her notebooks. In this story, Jessica was more of an observer than a participant, which was a disappointment to me.
So, while this book was an okay read, I expected so much more.
p.s. If you haven't read the other books in the series, DON'T start with this one. You'll be completely lost, as it's assumed you are already familiar with the characters and their back stories.

I totally agree with the other poster, that this is my least favorite of the series. I loved all 3 other previous books, so I was looking forward to Fourth Comings. What a disappointment. It was hard to get into and at times hard to follow. I found myself skipping paragraphs just to finish this one.
