Since there is still some room for improvement, I give it 3 stars as a good and solid read.
Sloan Skye is a genius FBI Intern, who lives with a genius chemist student roommate. Her mother is also extremely intelligent, and very quirky (the mother may, or may not have Schizophrenia. I'm banking that she doesn't). Her father was also extremely intelligent, but is no longer in the picture.
Skye seems to have only one other friend that may, or may not actually be her arch-enemy. He is actually her high school ex-boyfriend, and seems to be everywhere she is. Its borderline stalkerish. He is also extremely smart, and you are told by her that he may be smarter than her. Really does everyone in the book have to be a genius?????
What to me didn't really work was that she is supposed to be super intelligent, but I found that she seemed to not notice things that were right there if front of her. For a hopeful profiler that just didn't mesh to me. You can't be a dumb blonde and a super profiler at the same time. Take the ex he was supposed to have cheated on her in high school, yet for the last 5 years he has been her shadow (taken most of the classes she has, got a job at the FBI because she did, then transferred to the unit she worked with because she did, he got jealous of the other male agents, and helped her with her case) even though he's supposed to hate her. I found that odd from the beginning, and quickly realized he still liked her or never stopped. Though to Sloan it is an impossible suggestion even after all the help he gives her.
Skye is working with a new FBI group called the PBAU (paranormal behavioral Unit), which profiles cases that are of the occult. There are few agents in the group, and the ones that are there are suspicious. I was especially suspicious of super hot agent JT whom she is instantly attracted to. We have a setup for a love triangle between her, JT and Gabe the ex.
The action in this book is few and far between, mostly its mundane day to day stuff. You get a little quark thrown in from her mom, and roommate. The ending to me was very disappointing, but sets us up for another book.
