(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I found this book to be a really engaging read. Even though a lot of young adult books can be a bit hit and miss with me, I thought this book definitely fell in the former category.
El’s character was one I could easily empathise with, though I felt there was a little too much telling rather than showing when it came to her history with characters like Quinn and Joshua. I found her interactions with Ky came across as far more sincere.
I thought that the book started at a good point, but it meant I didn’t really have an opportunity to see the people El knew before she lost her mother.
I did think it was intriguing to see the Reflections, but I would have liked to learn a bit more about the relationships between the worlds. Even by the end of the book, I was left with quite a bit of confusion in regards to how the worlds all fit together.
I would have liked the opportunity to get to know the other characters in the other world. Robyn and Wren were two examples of that. It was implied that the two sisters were different, but the only differences came from how they treated and viewed El. I would have liked to see more of both of them.
It was interesting to learn about the relationship between the Verity and the Void, but I found myself getting a bit lost at times. I did feel a lot of sympathy for Ky… but I would have liked some more background with Jasyn. It was interesting to read some of the diary entries from El’s mother, but they didn’t really provide very much insight into the bad guys.
I did think there were some good elements of foreshadowing in this book and I really liked learning about the different kinds of abilities, although I did think there were some elements of information dumping there.
I would have liked it if this book had been longer and I could have learned more about the background of the worlds and how the characters knew each other. I would read more books by this author in the future, though… and I would like to see more of the characters and the world in future books.
