I did waffle between 4 and 5 stars because it takes awhile for the action to really get started. For almost the first half of the book, Anna is just a normal teenager who has some odd freckles showing up on her arm. Her conflicts are pretty typical stuff: figuring out where she's going to school, crushing on a boy she's been tutoring, and helping her mother deal take care of her younger brother. That being said, however, the writing is good and Anna is a well developed and realistic character. I would definitely recommend this book to most YA readers.
So, the first thing I thought I'd mention, was the fact that this book wasn't quite what I'd thought it to be when I'd read the original summary. I had been expecting much more in regards to fantasy, and for the book to touch on Anna's strange freckles more than just mentioning them a few times throughout. But strangely, I still really enjoyed this book. I found myself actually liking the rhythm, and though it read more like a contemporary, I didn't mind.
It's maybe about 75% through when the fantasy aspect finally starts to kick in, and things began to get more interesting. Unfortunately though, the book ends a bit abruptly, and we have to wait for book 2 to see what exactly is going on; but after this first book, I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.
Overall, this was a pretty well-written book, and I liked that Meghan Riley seemed very well-informed when it came to science, and being that I've personally never been good with science, so everything she's written sounds right to me.
Now, in conclusion, I liked this book and can't wait to see what the next one has in store for Anna and her new discoveries! Definitely recommend!!
The story is well written, lots of conversation, only the amount of narrative that is needed for background. I was able to read this rather quickly, and I loved this story.
Now my problem is waiting for the second book to come out for the Kindle.
The story centres around Anna, a young girl in her senior year, who has some spots/freckles on her arm that look like a constellation of stars. This is the first clue that you get in the story about what will happen. A majority of the story revolves around Anna and her life as a teen and the normal everyday issues that can be associated with that, the crush on the popular boy, the popular girls in school (who are stereotypically not very nice!), does the boy like me, annoying younger brothers, what college can I get into etc.
For me the paranormal/fantasy aspect of the book was secondary to the everyday issues that Anna was facing in high school. I think the reason for this, for me anyway, was the fact that you don't get any real explanations as to what is happening to Anna until right at the end of the story when we find out why all the weird things Anna was experiencing were happening.
This also helps resolve some of the things like does Steve really like Anna, what Jared is hiding and just who or what is the `Shadow Man'.
Unfortunately just as the book really gripped my attention it ended! So yes this is another cliff-hanger ending story. But I would definitely say this is a book to read for any teens out there into this genre, don't get me wrong, adults will also enjoy this book but, in my opinion anyway, it will hold a teens interest more, hence my 4 star rating from an adults viewpoint.
Please note I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
