(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Ideally, I’d give this book 4.5 stars. I found myself really enjoying this and I was reading eagerly to find out what was going to happen next.
I liked Gwendolyn as a character, though I wasn’t completely sure I would at first. The plot of this book was a really intriguing one and I especially liked the relationships she formed with the other two main characters… in particular with Rafe, but I did like Alistair as well.
I did get quite confused about things at first, but by the end, I had a much better understanding of the plot and what was going on. It was quite an interesting take on the time travel plot and I really liked learning about the whole theory and the different kinds of parallel worlds… even if I was still a bit confused by one certain thing in particular by the end.
I really empathised with Gwen and Rafe in particular during this book. They were both really easy to like… and I particularly liked learning about both of their pasts, even though a lot of it was sad. I also really enjoyed Rafe’s banter with Alistair.
The dreams Gwen was experiencing were really disturbing, but I found myself really intrigued by the relationship the boy had with her. That’s something I’d really like to learn more about.
I REALLY liked the hints of the romance forming between Gwen and Rafe. It was nice to read a book where the two characters didn’t fall in love at first sight. There was one extremely scary moment with Gwen that really made me concerned about her.
I would definitely like to read the next book/s. This was a really good introduction to the world and the characters. Some of the so-called ‘good’ characters were ones that I really didn’t like… but I definitely liked the main ones and I was also intrigued by Max and his past. I think that, if this turns into a series, it would probably become one of my favourites. As it stands, I’d like to see more of both the world and the characters.
