I really dug Zoe. Everyone knows she was a big time b**** but to be honest I agree with you, her dialogue was excellent. Her backstory had me hooked to. And after finishing the 4th trade I so want her back even more. Irina is not a solid trade.... Ugh i could not read this series in singles trade is hard enough to follow. I really like MG but O man at the end of the 4th trade it felt like you would get some big time answers!!....But not really. I'm in the trade buying for the whole long haul but its such an intriguing and frustrating series to read at the same time. Zoe, Casey and Miss Hodge are my current favorite characters.
