I just read this and my first reaction was Whaaaat?!!!! If Mrs. Cremer is messing with my poor heart I will scream! Please, God! Let it be real! Let Ren be alive somehow! I'm still a little shocked at the ending but I will read the new book [bc:Snakeroot|17372472|Snakeroot (Nightshade Legacy, #1)|Andrea Cremer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1360789798s/17372472.jpg|24159368] when it comes out just to find out if she is messing with us. But if that ends up being the case, then I'm officially giving up on Nightshade books, prequels or these Legacy novels.
