(I received a free copy of this book from INscribe Digital Publishing, through NetGalley, in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
The cover of this book and the blurb really attracted me, but I did struggle a bit with the plot itself.
The author, in this book, created a world that was really interesting and intriguing – but I felt that there was a bit too much info-dumping going on.
Despite her name, Genesis, at first, came across as quite an interesting character. Until she went to the Academy and became little more than a sex object.
The problem with having a character so completely unique is that you then run the risk of that character becoming a Mary Sue. Genesis was right up against the line, but the fact that she at least tried to have a life outside of ‘boys, boys, boys’ was what saved her.
Love triangles are rarely done well. Xander and Adam would have been much more interesting characters if the forced-romance aspects had been taken out. Genesis’ attraction to them was literally based on their appearance, rather than getting to know them – and that just didn’t resonate with me.
I was going to give this book two stars, but it did really pick up towards the end. The writing sucked me in with the final scenes and that’s what makes me interested enough to find out what’s going to happen to Genesis next.
