(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I felt the plot of this book was quite a unique take on the zombie-ish theme. I really liked Jessie as a character. Some of the comments she came out with made me smile.
It was interesting to see how society reacted to people like Jessie, too. It was intriguing to see how some of them used the Necronites, while others seemed to think they were something less than human.
One of the other intriguing things was the fact that Jessie was torn between two people in a love triangle, but it wasn’t irritating in the way that most love triangles are, since the two people were so entirely different (and she wasn’t torn between two guys).
It was good that the book started after society had more or less settled with Necronites being a ‘normal’ part of the society, if not an accepted one.
A lot of the other characters in the book were fairly interesting and are ones I’d like to see explored furthered in the next book. I especially liked Jessie’s brother and it would be nice to see more of her relationship with him.
I did like Blinkley as a character, even though I didn’t think I would when he first appeared. His relationship with Jessie was quite an interesting one.
The mystery in this book worked really well along with all of the other elements as well. I found the book to be really well-written and intriguing. It pulled me in almost from the start and I found it a really entertaining, easy read. I do have the second book in this series and I’m quite eager to read it and revisit the world in this book.
All in all, this was a really unique idea and a book I personally enjoyed reading. With vampires and werewolves becoming such a big thing, I found this to be much better than the many repeated plots I’ve found. I did have some questions that weren’t answered by the end of the book, but hopefully, the next book/s in this series will answer at least some of those. I do recommend giving this book a read if you’re thinking about it.
