My thoughts: It took me a little bit to become fully invested in FADING, but let me tell you... once I did, I was pretty annoyed that I had to put it down to do things like work, sleep, eat, you know that annoying thing called real life kept interrupting.
I was sucked into the book and found myself tearing up several times. Candace has backbone. She would be someone I would like to hang out with. The interaction between her and Ryan was well written. He was infinitely more patient than most guys might have been given a similar situation.
Candace's mom. What can I say? It's sad that a parent could be so cold toward her own child, but it happens all the time.
I loved Jace and Mark. Wish I would have gotten a chance to know Kimber a little better, but maybe next book??
Well done EK Blair. I look forward to books 2 and 3!
