Things that I liked about the story was that the idea behind the story seems to be original and that there were plenty of unpredictable twists, although the story still flowed quite nicely. The main female character of Kate is likeable, although I did find it a bit difficult to understand some of her decisions. Maybe a bit more character development would have helped. The personalities of Jack and Sebastian are also believable, but I found myself getting confused from going from liking one and hating the other and vice versa (although that may have been the author's intention).
All in all, it is a good read and I will read the sequel if there is one (I'm guessing there will be, given the cliffhanger it ended on). It was the gentle breakthrough into the supernatural genre that I had hoped for, so this story would suit those of a similar mindset.
If you are a fan of Twilight or the Providence series this is definitely a book for you. It's well written, fast paced, gripping, holds many (unpredictable) surprises and the characters are very easy to grow fond of. Kate is down to earth, a little weak yet has the capability to be strong and is easy to care about. I was torn over my feelings for Jack and Sebastian, don't get me wrong they are wonderful characters, but it is a roller coaster of which one you love/not love so much, based on the situation. But I did feel for them both.
Shall definitely be reading the next book as soon as its published as I think we have only scratched the surface of what is in store.
Enigma is one of these books that are difficult to rate because it could have been a brilliant book but I sometimes feel that because a book is intended for Y.A., some authors do not give enough depth to their characters. If you rate it on the plot only, then I understand a 5 or 4 stars. But if you want to rate it on the writing, then, no.
The idea behind the storyline is excellent but the book becomes only interesting once you pass about 30% and the twin brother Sebastian makes an appearance.The problem is that the book is written in the first person for the main character Kate, but Kate is not a very deep character (she was supposed to be though) and the dialogues are just flat.
Enigma is a book that should be charged with emotional tension but you do not feel it. You should be able feel Kate's anxiety as she is going to be adrenalized, you should be able to feel the distress of the two twins in the love triangle and when you have a funeral and the wife of the deceased collapses on the floor due to grief, you should reach for the box of tissues. And how many times do they collapse in a heap on the floor (or words to this effect) in the book? and I forgot this now totally cliche of biting the bottom lip.
Also, what is the point of having all these superpowers if you are not going to use them for something good? as it is, the twins' superpowers are wasted. They are not on the run (they are supposed to be in hiding though but you would not realise it) from any Agency, they are not here to save the world, they do not even help people. The author could have combined the romance with a bit of action and that would have made a world of difference.
Having said that, I would not discourage anyone from reading it. As I said, the storyline is good.Read more ›

This book is for teenage, American kids. Nice writing but very thin story line with big gapping holes. I was just too old and British to enjoy this book.Published 12 months ago by Di.
