(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I read the second book in this series first, but even though I was already familiar with the characters, I still found myself quite intrigued by this storyline. I was pulled into the world of this book really easily and I really liked Kirsten as a character. I found her to be intriguing and well-written and there were times I was really able to empathise with her throughout this book.
I felt the world of this book was really intriguing as well. I would have liked to see a bit more of the different Divisions in this book and what each of them were for. I couldn’t help feeling sorry for Division 0, considering that even their colleagues didn’t seem to trust or like them.
It was interesting to see the different ghosts in this book. I really liked it when Kirsten met Evan and started figuring out how to astral project. I was slightly amused by her reactions when she was listening in to the conversation.
I liked the fact that the author showed the effects that Kirsten’s past had on her. Even though she was an adult, it was good to see that the events of her past still affected her. I felt that made her a much more interesting and well-rounded character.
I also quite liked seeing Dorian in this book, though I was left confused about what he was for a little while. There were hints dropped, but I was hoping for a bit more background on his history and how Kirsten wound up with that car in particular.
I would have liked a bit more detail about the dolls. I wasn’t clear about whether they were viewed as ‘real’ citizens or not. It would have been nice to see a bit more about Dorian’s feelings regarding the dolls.
I did find this book to be really well-written. I was able to picture a lot of what was going on inside my mind and I cared about the characters. It was interesting to see the glimpses of what might happen to the souls after they moved on.
I hope to read the next book/s in this series in the future.
