REVIEW: Elite by Rachel Van Dyken

Elite (Eagle Elite #1)Elite by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 3 of 5 stars











OK... so when I started the book out, I felt:

To say that I was NOT HAPPY with various behaviors would be an understatment!


How I felt about The Elect *said with sarcastic finger quotes*:

But instead went all:

//


How I felt about it all as a whole:










Overall, lots of a potential lack of living up to it. It's not an awful read by any means, but it could be so much more, I feel!
