I think much of my dislike comes from the audiobook narrator. I will have to put August Ross on my DO NOT LISTEN TO list, right along side Jesse Bernstein (narrates the Percy Jackson series...horribly).
This book was good. Really no complaints. It was just a book I found easy to put down. I started Angelfall as soon as I finished Scarlet and was immediately sucked into that book. Now THAT is a book that is hard to put down!! I probably would have given Scarlet 4 starts if I didn't have Angelfall to compare from the same evening.
