2.5 StarsI really wanted to like this book. I liked how snarky Abby is and Phin, but that's about it. Finished the book, and I still don't fully understand the whole crossroads, TouchStone and Paths thing. That part really needed some fleshing out. The 'romance' was eh. Never liked Brystion from the start and he only started showing his personality after more than halfway through the book. And the action was almost non existent till about the last 1/4th of the book. Won't be reading the rest of these series.
