The Good: Loved the world Tania created and enjoyed Dawn as a MC.
The Issue: Would have liked to see more with Dawn and Silas (perhaps even worthy of a prequel) because their relationship seemed to come out of nowhere. Also issues with tense changing throughout.
The Rating: 4 stars. A cool new world with a lot of potential for future stories.
Tania Penn has taken a classic biblical moment and given it a modern spin in the opening installment of the Morning Star Trilogy. It's tough to review without spoilers, and I feel that letting the characters and story unfold for the reader will make a huge difference.
While this would probably be most aptly categorized in the Young Adult category, as a more mature reader I found it quite enjoyable. As a native of the Pasadena area where the book is set, I enjoyed the references to some of the areas most iconic places.
The characters, while not all likeable, were intriguing and layered. The dialogue captures the modern teen while managing to skirt the usual drop in IQ most books attribute to cheerleaders and athletes.
There are enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged, without so many plot turns that it loses any relationship to the main character's reality.
I'm eagerly awaiting BOOK 2!
can't wait for sequels to be written... :)
