3.0 out of 5 stars A promising series, June 15, 2012
This review is from: Alone (The Girl in the Box Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I love the Sanctuary series so I was excited for Crane's switch to a new genre. I brought this book along for a week-long work trip expecting it to keep me company through several airports across a couple of continents. It only lasted me a layover in JFK - I couldn't put it down.

The story was fast-paced and the plot was thick, similar to X-men but still original and riveting. The only difficult part about the story is that it's obvious Crane has never been a 17 year-old girl. I'm not sure too many people would be able to write for the perspective of a teenage hermit mutant, and I trust it will come together in time, but it was a little distracting.

Regardless, Alone has all the necessary parts for a great series. We love and hate the agents protecting Sienna, there's the promise of a super-elite team of fellow mutants, a heinous super villain, mysterious allies not allied with the super-mutant agency, and an ending worthy of the best facepalm.

You'll regret not reading this book.

How is "an ending worth the best facepalm" part of a favorable review? I really don't want to get to the end of *any* book and want to hang my head in my hands, and casually throwing that in there has left me confused if the reviewer really liked the book, or was just paid to say they did, inserting the facepalm comment as the only truth to their feelings.
