(I received this book for free from Poisoned Pen Press, through NetGalley, in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I found this book to be a really interesting, well-written read with characters that I really liked.
I could relate really well to the main character, Faith, in this. What she went through with her mother actually mirrors a lot of my relationship with my mother – though I was older than she was at the time. I felt the author did a really good job of portraying the mixed emotions Faith had in a realistic way.
I did like the other characters in the book as well. Although Faith’s relationships with Anj and Jesse were really up-and-down, it still came across as really natural – and Jesse was particularly sweet with how hard he worked to be a supportive friend towards Faith. Anj was a really good friend, too. I felt it was really good that Faith had that kind of support from them, no matter how much she tried to keep everyone at arms length.
The science aspects were a bit confusing at times, but I think I understood most of it by the end. I thought it was all really cleverly done and I particularly liked how the whole thing ended, even if I would have liked to see a bit more, ‘I told you so’.
The writing was mostly good, though I did notice a few errors. The book was well-written enough to keep me reading on the edge of my seat, though. I would definitely be interested in reading more books in this series in the future. It would be nice to see more of the characters.
