I am sooo picky when it comes to books; I picked up this book as I thought it sounded interesting. Well what can I say; it is the most brilliant book I have ever read. I know everyone seems to say this, but, I can not put this series of books down, literally. I am addicted. It has a brilliant plot and a story where you never really know what may come next.
I'm not going to spoil the plot, so I'm only going to tell you the basics. It is about a girl named Gaia, 17, she is not in contact with her father and her mother died shortly before her father left. Her father is an agent in the FBI; therefore making it a danger for him to contact her (he hasn't contacted her for 5 years). Well she has this extraordinary strength, and capabilities, and without the obstacle of 'fear' standing in her way she is almost unstoppable. But I think the whole point of this book seems to be the fact that although she is so different, she has vulnerability, like the rest of us. It has everything from kidnapping, murders, love, lust, action, comedy, friendship, betrayal. Basically anything and everything you can think of and it is included. But The best part of this book, is that is seems to be able to teach us that we are never really different from the next person, no matter how much we have convinced ourselves that we are. It allows us to escape into an alternative reality, where we may even think our lives may not even seem all that bad after all.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone, girl or boy, it doesn't matter because it appeals to all. You will not be sorry if you read. The only bad thing is when you have to wait for the next book to be released, especially when it has already been released abroad, damn. (But don't worry there are already about 30 so far.) Well enjoy, because I guaranty it will be the best (or one of the best) book(s) you will ever read.
