     Meet Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy. Three lost girls, each searching for something. But what they find is Beyond Belief.

My Review:

*May Contain Spoilers*

WTF did I just read? I really don't know. Some of the things that happened in the book were very far-fetched. 

First off the writing was confusing and kinda bad. The POV's were switched too many times in different paragraphs of the SAME PAGE!! First you were told what Lucy though while a conversation was going on. Then the POV switched to Cecelia's and you got her take on the conversation; then the next paragraph had Sebastian's POV on what the two girls are saying while he watches them. It was wayyy too confusing and really annoying. 

Next I have no idea WTF happened in the chapter when the girls went to the chapel in the basement during the tornado. I mean its like they were tortured and stuff. Correct me if I'm wrong but when someone gets shut up in an iron maiden aren't they supposed to die? How the hell did Cecelia survive? and shouldn't Lucy have been blinded permanently when the hot wax FELL into her EYES! I mean come on, the things that happened to the should have seriously injured them. But no they walk outta there no worse for ware. 

And WTF went on with the fight scene in the end? All of a sudden the girls are kick ass heroines who are ok with killing people, gruesomely I might add. They stand there while the people's blood surrounds them. WTF is that? ANd the guys come outta no where ready to kill and rape them because someone told them too? and a psychiatrist no less. But all of a sudden the girls get the "power" and while the are hurt (again not seriously hurt when their injuries should have been) they still beat and kill FOUR guys who are BIGGER than them? and its like the guys didn't even put up much of a fight either. 

I did like the whole saint concept but I thinks it wasn't done well in the book.
