Before reading this book, I was not aware of the author or any previous releases from her but after reading the synopsis, I found myself wanting to read the book - and so I did.
I loved the idea of the book, although it's very similar to a lot of other story lines available it seemed to hold originality within it's own right. I loved the characterization, genre and plot which the book possessed. Overall, I did really enjoy the book and would recommend it to others, however I feel that there were certain aspects which let it down which more experienced (if this is the right way to put it) readers would pick up on over people who don't have much time to read.
I found that the ending of the book was all rather rushed and the climax it built up to seemed to come and go within a page and things returned to normality rather easily. The introduction of the characters, setting and initial plot seemed to occupy most of the book leaving not much room for real action to unfold. I felt myself get to 75% way through the book and wondered if anything was going to happen at all or if it was literally a book just explaining someone's (Kennedy's - the main protagonist) life change. Don't get me wrong, for the first section of the book - I couldn't put it down and I was completely intertwined within the plot and under suspense of what was to come, but for me the climax let the rest of the book down.
However, the plot twist was good but it just didn't last for long enough and was resolved too quickly and easily. Having said this, the book was clearly left open for a sequel and this I look forward to and can see the second book being an even better read than the first.
Overall, anyone still deciding whether or not to read this book should, as I feel it is the beginning of an amazing saga which just hasn't quite blossomed within the first book, but still leaves me curious and excited for the second.
