This book was just flawless. It picked me up on the first page and ran with me through the story. I kept trying to put it down and then I'd find I'd read 3 more chapters than I'd intended! I loved the premise and the world of the story, and the characters were wonderfully complex - even the 'bit part' characters. For me, it was an advantage to be written in 3rd person POV because it gave me a bit of distance from the main character, Elissa, so I could see her flaws as well as her good points.

It's worth buying this book for the last line alone which is a creepy piece of genius that has ensured I've just bought the sequel (Chaos).
It's a great concept, it's well-written, the characters are engaging and the countdown to the end is gripping.
The only thing I must warn British readers about, because it was a heck of a distraction, is that despite the book being set in Britain with British characters it was clearly edited for a US audience, which means that the dates are written wrongly (i.e. month - day - year, instead of the day - month - year that Brits would use). Just ignore that and enjoy the story, it's worth it.
Shift (Strange Chemistry) by Kim Curran

Shift takes a great premise (Shifters can change their decisions and alter reality as a result), and builds a strong, pacy story around it. Curran writes well and has a real flair for cliff-hanger chapter endings.
It was prevented from being a 5*book for me because when things speeded up heading for the denouement, I found our narrating hero was reaching conclusions that hadn't been foreshadowed enough (for me)and took me by surprise, whereas the heroine didn't seem to know what was going on and was too passive for my liking.
But overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I'll buy her next.
