This book was hard to get through. Clare is a contradiction and really hard to like. She is untrusting, skeptical and stubborn as hell. The second Jake starts talking to her she spills her guts. That didn't ring true for me after the way she is portrayed. Plus the way she treats everyone else makes her really hard to sympathize with. Jake is all alpha and has a dark side, I'm all for that, but his "you will do this, you will do that" instead of asking was too much. I liked the other character, Clare's sister and Dad try so hard to help her and be a part of her life, but she shuts them out. Plus there is a bunch of Arcane history that was hard to get through. The "relationship" between Clare and Jake was too forced, I didn't get any love from them.
