(By the way, great trailer. Captures everything in the book.)
The beginning of the book really keep your head into the book. After a while the pace went steady and i like it. One thing i was surprised about the book was that it was in third person perspective because i was used to Amanda Hocking's first person perspective from Switched but i got the hang of it after a few chapters. One of the thing that i really liked about the book was about the history and explanation behind the girls (Penn, Thea and Lexi) being a siren. What did make me down was the ending. I knew it was coming and it was really predictable.
The characters i feel the same about as well. They didn't have much depth but i did love the sister relationship between Gemma and Harper. Harper looks after her sister and Gemma is the easy going on. I also loved looking through both of their perspectives. Theres also another good side of the book than the history behind the sirens. There's not only one relationship in the book but two! One for Gemma and one for Harper. Gemma and Alex are really together. Harper and Daniel are not really relationship but you can feel the sparks in the paper. I have to say my favorite couple is Harper and Daniel.
In conclusion, Wake was a enjoyable read. I loved the back story and the relationships. On the other hand, it also gave me a negative view of it because the characters didn't have much depth and the ending was predictable (but i'll still be reading Lullaby.)
