(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I thought this book was quite an intriguing one. The hints of time travel were quite good to read about and I did actually like Jace as a character… even though I found it quite confusing when she was experiencing so much deja vu. I did feel, at times, that there were some elements of repetition through the book.
I found both Corey and Damien hard to understand at times. While I think a lot of the confusion made sense for Jace, I found myself constantly having to adjust to the fact that both of Jace’s potential romance interests seemed to come across as bad guys.
I thought the idea of the tablet was a really cool one, though I didn’t really understand how it got to Jace even by the end of the book. There were a few things I didn’t really understand even by the end of the book… and I really didn’t like the love triangle that developed. I didn’t really feel that Jace had real feelings towards either of them.
I did feel that the world of the book was very self-contained. I didn’t see too many characters outside of the main ones. I would have liked to see more of Jace’s relationship with her father. His behaviour later on seemed very much at odds with how he was with Jace beforehand. While there were certain things that did make sense later on, I didn’t feel that a lot of those issues were resolved satisfactorily by the end of the book.
There was quite a good thread of mystery through this book, but I felt that Jace didn’t make a lot of connections that were obvious to me. I also wasn’t quite sure what Jace’s job at Omnibus was… there was reference made to how skilled she was, but I didn’t see much evidence of that.
I felt the book picked up a bit more towards the end and it was good to see that Jace did start acting on her own, rather than passively allowing the men around her to take charge and make the decisions for her.
The ending was intriguing enough to pique my interest in reading another book in this series, especially since this book ended on something of a cliffhanger.
