So, I delayed starting the Scarab Beetle series for a really long time because I was afraid it would be too similar to the Ghostbird series and I didn't want to take away from Sang and the boys at all. I was worried the uniqueness of their situation would lose some of that special quality.
I was having Academy withdrawal about a week ago, so I finally decided to open my copy of Thief. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not diminish Sang's story and I enjoyed the occasional mentions of Luke and the guys. I was a little frustrated with Kayli but I understood it was the first book and she only just met everyone so she didn't know where she stood. I'm on to Liar (30%) and I am really really frustrated with her. To the point that I haven't touched the book in about 5 days.
My question to you all is, will she eventually make up her mind to trust the academy or is she going to continue to play both sides. Ok, I guess I don't really want to know that answer.... it's a bit spoilery. I guess.... will she keep frustrating me or is she going to get her act together? I was sympathetic initially but I feel like she has some real loyalty issues and it's hard for me to read. It's not like she is as young and innocent as Sang so I'm having a harder time making excuses for her.
I want to keep reading the series because I do like the concept an C.L. has not let me down with Ghostbird but I just don't know about Kayli. The guys are all good though.
Sorry for the early morning rambling. ;-)
