Wow. Now that all that is Sky and Holder have seeped into my brain and I'm slowly coming out of my book hangover I can say this book deserves at least a solid 4 stars,maybe more depending on your views. I loved Holder. Every single inch of him. And not just in a dirty way, but also in a "OMG how sweet is he? way" The book has some faults but I think its still a heart wrenching, tissue soaking read. One that will have you refusing to put Hopeless down.
