This review is from: The Sentinel (The Sentinel Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was totally hooked from the first page. Eve gets rescued from a bus crash, which by rights should have killed everyone and kick starts a series of events and revelations that will change Eve’s world and outlook on life forever. She finds that her friends have been handpicked for her, her parents aren’t who she thought they were, and even her dog had been lying to her. Luckily she as her friends had been picked to protect her, she is surrounded by people she knows and loves, including her best friend Seth, and they help her try to come to terms with the strange new things that are happening to her, and the prophecy about her future.

I literally couldn’t put this book down and read it in about 3 sittings, including one sitting of 70%!! The writing is really great and pulled me in and really made me feel like I was experiencing the emotions of the characters. It is really fast paced, and even though I’m not a massive fan of fantasy, this book really captured my imagination.

Eve is a great character and is very mature. She didn’t feel selfish or spoilt in any way, which I think could have easily happened with a character in her situation. Also, even though there are a lot of characters I didn’t feel like I was losing track of who they are like I do with some books.

Eve’s relationship with Seth seems impossibly close at the beginning – I too had a male best friend through high school so I found comparing the relationships a bit weird at first. It all makes sense later on though, and I was glad that it was clarified! The one thing I would say about the book is although it is set in England, in the main it doesn’t feel particularly English or British. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, more of an observation.

I would definitely recommend this book and already have to some of my friends! If I were to compare it with other books, the storyline itself is incomparable, but the feel of it reminded me of a Harry Potter/Hunger Games hybrid! I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series.
