5th sentence, 74th page: Adam returned to the corner of the building, peeked around and came back.
Paige & Adam’s first sleuthing adventure.
I loved this insight into Paige and Adam as teenagers. They are just as rebellious, individualistic and strong-willed as I expected. Adam’s slight crush on Paige also helps to answer a few questions that I had when meeting them both in Stolen – not an unrequited love, but a crush nevertheless. It is also a great reminder of the state which the supernatural council was in at the beginning of the Women of the Otherworld series.
Robert’s manipulations of both Paige and Adam indicate a far more intelligent and shrewd man than I had previously envisaged. Likewise, his acceptance in the flaws of the methods employed by the council to maintain order hint at the beginnings of change in the world. The changes which begin to spark and flare with Elena’s changing and continue to gain traction throughout the series.
