My Review: Pretty in Black for me was a good book. I enjoyed it alot. The story line was great and you could feel the chemistry with the to main characters Ellie and Marcus. However.
Book one of the series did not live up to the intensity of the novels synopsis. Half of the novel is told from Ellie's head the other half is told from Marcus, I understood the novel a lot more from Marcus' head.
